    Highlighted embossing makes for easy reading

    I can see the benefit if they were up on a shelf and the embossing would otherwise be hard to read. Look pretty cool actually but I don't know if I'd have the patience, especially for the more complex ones like the A-B.

    Simple cleaning that worked for me.

    What is the purpose of magnets and velcro (if you don't mind a question)?

    what is it?

    I was hoping somebody would have ID'd it by now so my brain could take a break, lol. It reminds me of an old vegetable peeler handle, but the chain is throwing me off.

    Paul Jones and Co Four Roses bottle

    Does the inside need cleaning? That top might have kept it from from getting dirtier, it's in much better shape than some of the bottles I've come across

    LK makers mark (in a six pointed star) on bottom.

    I know, right? It's currently packed away and I thought the bottom mark would make it easy to track down but not having any luck so far. If I recall it was nondescript, clear bottle, probably 6-8oz with a crown top. There was another similar one with the same logo on bottom but said pat...

    Trash Dump Dig #2

    My guess is the wings were probably the first thing to break off. Those old metal planes didn't fly so well but I'm sure every kid tried.

    Trash Dump Dig #2

    That airplane in the last pic is pretty cool too

    LK makers mark (in a six pointed star) on bottom.

    Anyone recognize this mark? Did a bit of research and came up blank. No other real identifiable features (should have taken more pics before packing away, thought it would be easier to look up). Assuming >1900 because of the top being crown cap. Thanks!

    Curious

    That's kinda concerning. Ew. Could have been used for a wide variety of who-knows-what. If you decide to keep the bottle I'd attempt to sterilize the heck out of it, but that's just me.

    How to take modern paint off bottles

    Her heart might have been in the right place. I'd try warm soapy water before sandpaper. Good luck lol

    Heartbreaking Dig

    Was something like a 3 gal crock often dumped if it wasn't already broken? Or maybe got broken while being dumped?

    How to Frankenstein bottles?

    Could end up worse than it is currently, unless you know what you're doing. I see what you mean about the slant but keep in mind lining up two angles will be tougher than a straight cut.

    Modified R.C. Cola bottle?

    Pretty sure they were heated with a a torch and stretched out.

    Burdock Blood Bitters & 1914 Almanac - back together again :)

    Pretty cool. What size did these come in? The top is throwing me off.

    Really Old Bowl?

    It stood out to me that most of those google examples show the pattern on the inside of the bowl vs outside...whether that's significant or not?
