Hi there, I have a friend that just picked up this bottle. It’s turned a nice purple hue. It has what looks like a slug plate with full pint embossed on it. It also has a relatively sloppy applied lip. Any historical info on this bottle would be much appreciated.
Hi there, I was thinking about picking up a Queen Jar with the word Widemouth misspelled. It is spelled “Widemuth”. Would anyone know what the value of this jar should be? I’m thinking it is a $5 to $10 Jar but I think the seller will want much more. Any input appreciated.
I recently picked up a number of dirty and worn pop crates. I was wondering if there was a way to clean them without wearing the graphics away any further and also preserving them better for the future?
Here's a couple of pic's.
Can someone also tell me how to rotate pic's to post properly :)

I just picked up a Crown Mason Jar pre- 1928 (before they started embossing "Made in Canada" on the jars). I have several of Crown jars in my collection but have never seen a base embossed with only 3 dots in a triangle formation. Most have a Dominion Glass (Diamond D) makers mark...
I picked up a beer bottle the other day which had "This Bottle Belonging to Brewery Products Limited May Not Be Sold" embossed near the bottom of the bottle and also had a BP Ltd and a diamond D embossed on its base. I could not find anything regarding Brewery Products Limited when I...
Hi there, I just picked up a couple of barnyard boxes filled with old bottles. A few still have caps or corks sealing them. Other than some vintage beer and pop bottles I have never purchased "other" bottles before and the fun is just beginning! Here are the first 3 of 30+ bottles from the two...
Hi there, I just picked up a couple of barnyard boxes filled with old bottles. A few still have caps or corks sealing them. The outside of the bottles are great but the inside are a mess. Should I uncap/uncork these bottles to clean the insides? One in particular, a Scott’s Emulsion COD...
