    Iron pontilled Mineral Water

    The way it was found would discount any post alterations of the soda it would seem, but it looks like the neck is too short and it reminds me of all the Savannah bottles with replaced tops.

    The dangers of digging

    A lot of glass housed made window glass as well as bottles. If you get in to one of those glass house dumps like I did in Medford NJ (Star Glass Works) WATCH OUT!

    need serious help with pricing magnesias

    I give away anything that won't sell for $20 or more on ebay. People who don't know much about blown bottles are thrilled to get them for nothing. Why give them away you ask. Because you just can't hoard every blown bottle without making your collection look trashy. Specialization is the...

    Authentic Buffalo Jar ??

    Came to look at the bottle but now I am more interested in the tattoo on the palm of your hand.

    Cool stone carving.

    I think you found something important. Nice to see something like that in NJ. It's definitely N. ore central Jersey since you can't find a rock bigger than a pebble in most of S. Jersey

    Very large collection of pharmacy bottles, canning jars, insulators, condiment jars, acl soda bottles. Would like to sell. If looking for something...

    Sorry, I am just seeing this now. I would like to see a pic of a clear chestnut flask. Clear would be a rare color in a pontiled chestnut flask. cl

    Special Coke Bottle.

    I only participate in ebay auction format. I breeze right over anything that even comes close to retail price. I like sellers that show confidence in their offerings.

    Need help identifying this antique red amber bottle.

    That's not a kick up. It might have recycling value.

    Highlighted embossing makes for easy reading

    The problem is that some highlighted bottles ARE permanent. I bought some where the highlighting couldn't even be tumbled off.

    How did you do that so neatly? The highlighted bottles I have purchased look so sloppy.

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    Good photography. Photographing glass is an art. Need to get you some older bottles now.
