    Wyeth 269 bottle with an applied top.

    The bottom has a lot of unusual lines in it which I don’t think is damage caused by age. The top is an applied top as seen in the pictures.

    Bought today from an antique store. R & C N.Y. N.Y.

    For as small a bottle that it is I was surprised to see the embossing on the bottom. I don’t see a suction mark and the mold line runs up to a cm below the lip where the lip was tool-finished (inside is smooth). Inside the bottle some bubbles are protruding and can be felt. There are a few big...

    Bought today at an antique store. 1 quart amber whiskey bottle

    I have about 20 tabs open there lol. It is a great resource and I have tried to use their dating page but my general inexperience with the small differences in types of bases and tops always leads me to date it incorrectly when I come across pre-crown bottles.

    Bought today at an antique store. 1 quart amber whiskey bottle

    What makes this a hinge mold and not a post bottom mold? I’m also intrigued that the base is off center...is that why it’s hinged? It’s about an inch on the short side and the other side is noticeably longer.

    Bought today at an antique store. 1 quart amber whiskey bottle

    I was intrigued this had no makers mark on it. Looks like an applied double ring finish that is incomplete on the second ring. The interior of the bottle is not uniform and in the pictures the original mold blown top is visible in a cracked part the applied finish went over. It doesn’t have any...

    Found 2 versions of the same type of medicine bottle but one has a logo I can’t locate any info on

    Thank you! I didn’t think to check under oil Derrick and xxx wasn’t listed.

    Found 2 versions of the same type of medicine bottle but one has a logo I can’t locate any info on

    The both are 3ii medicine bottles. The OI one has measurements for it and I actually found with the cap on (plastic). I cannot locate anything about the other glass manufacturer.

    Cannot locate what this OI bottle with a peculiar design from 1939 would have held

    Thanks! I knew this bottle was an unusual one because of that design on it but this certainly helps unlock the mystery on it.

    Thank you so much! I found this in Baltimore so I’m thinking it is from 1929 and not 1939 since that patent was submitted for approval in 1928 and not approved until 1929. It was only for a period of 7 years too.

    I forgot I removed the bottle cap hours ago before cleaning. My mistake!

    The bottom says Pat Des 79296 and it’s made at plant 7 in 1939. I’m surprised I couldn’t locate it already by patent number or by having seen a similar bottle design before. The top is not a crown but a twist off.

    Can’t find anything about this logo. Only have the base of the bottle

    This was found around some other early 1900’s bottle

    Found around 1930’s bottles. All white and is 2 inches tall. Looks to have held something blue

    The top for it was rusted on but I sat that in vinegar for about 10 hours and removed it. Inside was a cobalt blue type of substance that looks like it could have been paint. The bottom has a C and then below it Made in U.S.A.

    Can’t tell how old this is but can’t find a suction seam anywhere

    How do you differentiate that from a Pontil mark?

    Can’t tell how old this is but can’t find a suction seam anywhere

    I found a similar jar before from the same spot that’s an Owens one from 1927 that I have used as my basis of comparison. I’m still new to this but the mold line runs up to the top and then stops before it. The inside is smoothish but it feels crimped above where the mold line ends so I think...

    Any thoughts on how to get these rocks that are rusted onto this off or if it should be cleaned at all?

    I tried vinegar overnight and it loosened it all up. I took a bamboo chopstick and started to force it off and then the lid just broke apart into big pieces. Thank you all for your help!

    Has anybody seen this mark on a beer bottle before?

    Found three of these but can’t find anything on the SHA list about it.
