    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    At least you have one great bottle from them. Maybe there is a good quart bottle out there somewhere yet, waiting to be found.

    Found

    Can you tell us more about it? How old is it?

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    Do you know the full name of the company? I see AMERICAN but can't read the rest.

    Uranium Glass

    Nice find! They usually don't have the cap anymore. I recently found one too. Not even sure what I'll do with it. But I don't think people threw them away too often. Maybe I can find a replacement cap for mine. It's a Hazel-Atlas.

    Civil War era “Witch Bottle” found in VA

    Sounds interesting but I can't read it. The article has a paywall. Here's an article that includes a video. https://wtvr.com/2020/01/22/witch-bottle-virginia/

    Your best bottle photo's

    I should have contributed to this post sooner. Here is one of my Old Overholt whiskey flasks inside a window of the distillery where the whiskey was made!

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    That's cool. I know some bring them home. Just not something I am interested in doing. Usually I only have enough pack space to carry out the good bottles, Then at home I don't have a lot of space left either.

    That is a stunning looking drinking glass!

    That is very creative that you are able to salvage bottles like that and make them usable. I'll let you know if I find anymore suitable ones.

    There's actually a Thorton bottle on Ebay right now. It's been on there forever because it does have a crack.

    It sure would have been nice. I still don't have one.

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    I saw some ACL Cameron's in a coffee shop / antique store. Maybe they were from Washington. Now I wonder if they still have them.

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    It could have had damage on the back that isn't seen. I can't recall now but maybe I'll find it again.

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    It should still be there. Just a matter of me remembering where exactly. I don't think I have ever seen any from Washington, PA. Besides online.

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    Same here! Hutches are made so thick and strong, I don't know why they always have to be the broken ones. The thing that bugs me most is the most common bottles always seem to survive. Like the Heinz model #257 bottle lol. They are everywhere.

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    I have been going in the woods about once a week. That is all the weather allows right now. I brought home a few things but nothing amazing. Just wanted to add this broken Schaller's bottle for documentation purposes. It is from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have read that the brewery existed from 1896 to...

    Today's Discoveries From The Beach

    I've found some of those ampules and didn't even know what they were. Really like that Borden's bottle!

    Two Recent Finds (Before and After)

    Your bottles came out great. I'd also like to recommend using rice to shake and clean the insides of bottles. Because of how it's made, the rice can get into all the small areas where the dirt might be stuck. And it's inexpensive too.

    Dump finally gave up one that made it worth while.

    Very nice bottle. I always love the ones that have a city on them.

    Is this a normal 1943 Coca Cola bottle color? Or repro?

    It is a real bottle and not a reproduction because Patent D bottles were not reproduced. However the December 25, 1923 patent "Christmas" Coke bottles were. And Seattle was one of the cities reproduced for that.
