    Mini wine bottles?

    QUOTE="Catcat16, post: 724927, member: 28751"] Blueing? I’m not familiar with that term. Hi cat bluing was used to make your laundry whites whiter. Your mother may have used it. My mother did, she would just wave the bar of bluing in the wash tub. Bruce

    New Additions from Local Bottle show.

    Never seen a quart hutch, do not think we have one in Canada at least not that I have seen in almost 50 years of collecting. Good finds and nice to have a bottle tumbler. You can pick up some nice bottles that need fixing. Bruce

    What the heck is this thing?

    What you have is a glass cane, these were often made at glasshouse to show the blowers skill. It is missing about 18" of length. They are quite collectable and quite sought after. I have included a screen shot from google images and it shows the handle of your cane pretty much. Bruce

    What’s your favorite beer bottle surface find?

    Sorry to say but I did not find this beer, my wife did. She was out for a walk in our woods and just laying on the ground was this blob beer. It is Silver Creek Brewery Guelph, this is a precursor to the Sleeman Brewery from Guelph. Cleaned up very nice and had the wire bale in tact and working.

    Pontil bottle

    Hi all, Sandchip I think I am in your camp. It looks good but there is just something that does not ring true. I have attached a couple of photos of a couple of bottles I have that are quite similar in construction but mine have ribs on the side. No mold line but has a pontil and thin applied...

    A find l have been holding on to for a while

    I beg to differ about it not being drinkable, I purchased a few years ago a large jug from George Bernhardt from Galt. It had a cork in it and a paper label that said red wine. This was at least 100 plus years old, I pulled the cork and poured some of the contents out and it was absolutely...

    Can fruit jars (glass) be an investment???

    I agree with all of you about collecting, buy what you like and buy the best you can. Never assume that your investment will go up especially a collectable. Case in point beanie babies. I have a collection of squat sodas and thought I had a good investment and then they dug the dome in Toronto...

    Marbles from the 1896 homestead?

    I wonder if they had been mounted in a sun catcher or some other such ornament and it sat on the stump and just deteriorated. Bruce

    Another Crazy One?

    Yes I took a look at their other items and the real laughable item was his Olympic coke can for 50,000$, the last time I saw a can like that was one that I forgot about in the freezer. Just saying. There name on eBay says it all betrillionaire. Bruce
