Went creek walking after T.S. Isaias and found this rashed-up cream bottle. Slug plate reads: "RH ROSE"
Google turned up pretty much zip on the dairy. Likely a PA or NJ dairy, given where I am.
Any info appreciated.
Here are some pics...
Spotted oysrter shels among some newly disturbed earth. Not much tim to explore today, but scratched out a few goodies
.Bromo / Pitcher's Castoria / Hood's Sarsaparilla.
Also grabbed a slick cone ink and a ceramic serving tray backmarked "Mercer Semi-Vitreous" (not pictured).

This one has an embossed recessed panel on one face only, a single-thread screw top, and no base mark...
New site coughed up a nice squat soda. Smith & Co / Philada. Large "M" on the reverse. Flat base, no pontil. I've found the pony-style Smiths but this has the longer neck and harder shoulder. Am hoping it's 1860s. What do you guys think?
Was doing some urban creek-walking and found this eye wash cup. Trying to determine an age...
The base has the Maryland Glass Co "M" and a "5."
So that puts it at 1921–1956, but was hoping to close that window a bit. The stemmed, 8-sided style has me hoping it might be earlier. Any of you...
