    Horsfords Acid Phosphate advertising booklet

    At $2, this was a steal. Very good condition, and an interesting ad from the around the year 1890.

    Western bottles

    I got some bottles from the Olde West, and some nice ones at that. Here is a nice Aronsons Whiskey flask, from Seattle Washington. This one has been left in the sun for a while, due to the purple coloring. Not irradiated at all. I am not able to find much on this, other than Aronson was a...

    TB and silverware you find in dumps

    Ever wonder why we sometimes find sterling silver spoons, or similar utensils in trash pits and dumps? A good theory is the Tuberculosis epidemic of the late 19th century, early 20th. People were so scared of TB, they just threw everything out belonging to the person who was infected. Houses...

    Highlighted embossing makes for easy reading

    Some bottle purists might cringe, but I personally makes them stand out better, and is therefore more enjoyable to view. I won't do this to all of my bottles, but for those amber SS Cokes, it's a big improvement. I used an artists paint marker, witch comes off with nail polish remover easily.

    Coal region blob top - F. Krapp

    Here is a really nice pony or squat blob top from Ashland PA, from the Schuylkill county coal region. I practically spent 1/4 of my life up in Ashland. In the past two recent years, I've been finding excellent spots for glass that I have to check out. Ashland holds a special place in my heart...

    Counterfeit black glass mineral water

    This is a counterfeit of the famous Huyandi Janos mineral water bottles, from Hungary. The base says "Keseru viz forras kocs" which I translated to Bitter Water source Quercus. Quercus means Oak in Latin. I'm not an expert on this whatsoever, so any help would be appreciated. It was found in...

    I visited the current visitors page of this forum, and noticed a lot of bots checking out members profiles, media, conversations, etc. What's the deal with that?

    Blobs, rare SS, and more!

    I've been all across the Eastern U.S. at many antique shops, and have seen some fine bottles, especially down in Savannah Georgia. But with great bottles, comes great price tags, and I had to let them go each time. I've been after a blob top bottle for three years! Well yesterday changed it...

    A run down of what's coming soon

    I have a really, really, really promising spot/spots in Pennsylvania to search, possibly this February. (I say possibly, because it's still up in the air) Schuylkill county Pennsylvania is in the heart of the Anthracite coal region. Pretty much every town you see is a mining town, and they are...

    My 2019 total

    2019 was my best year ever for bottles and general relics and artifacts. Several Coca Cola's, including an ultra rare, nobody-knows-nothin'-about SS from Lexington Ky, local sodas, Civil War era alcoholic bottles, meds and my first dump finds. All in all, a great year. I ordered a blob beer...

    Looking for my first blob top

    I am looking for my first blob top. Preferably 1860s era. Nothing expensive or rare, but not cracked and chipped either. American only. I do not have an unlimited budget, so if you'd like to trade, I'm open for it. I trade bottles and reproduced arrowheads I make myself.

    9 examples known!?

    At first glance, this looks like your run of the mill, Coca Cola Straight side from Lexington Kentucky. The mark on the bottom of this bottle however may be super rare. The marking shown here is what has me excited. This is the mark of the Graham Glass Company, rather, a logo they used on...

    Strange Coca Cola straight side

    I found this at a local antique shop that usually doesn't give up much. For $19.95, I think I made a good deal. It's from Lexington Kentucky. I have never seen a marking like the one on the base pictured before. Has anyone ever seen it before? I already have a Lexington Coke, so this one is...
