    Bagley & Co bottle

    This small bottle has B & Co Ld on the base indicating it was manufactured by Bagley & Co between 1899 and 1920. There is a horseshoe like embossment on the side. It stands 3 1/2 inches tall. Any idea what it was used for? I have not seen another like it.

    River Bottle

    I found this in California. It has an applied top, seams from a clamshell mold with extruding glass and only the three numbers on the base shown as markings. Any thoughts as to what I have here? I posted here because of the extrusion suggesting an older less well fitting mold. The bottle is a...

    Digging a river, anyone else have experience?

    Harry I disagree. If there is boat traffic you don't know where it is coming from until it is right over top. Sound travels faster under water and it is difficult to ascertain where it might be eminating from. If the boat is travling fast and you are near the surface without an SMB, that prop is...

    Digging a river, anyone else have experience?

    Remember that this is an overhead environment. You cannot just surface because of boat traffic. Sometimes the current is too strong and you have to abort the dive. Typically my visibility when digging for bottles is inches to zero, so navigation is by compass. Also, if you are weighted, be...

    Hutchinson Bottle

    Found near Sacramento. It is embossed with a large H on one side and a large P on the other. Under the H is SAC embossed. On the bottom is C. S. W. and SAC. I have not been able to find out anything about this particular bottle. All help and suggestions appreciated.

    Snuff Bottle Id please

    Thanks, I'll follow up on those leads

    Snuff Bottle Id please

    I don't think so. Eyewash bottles are generally blue and round and this has the construction and look of a snuff bottle.

    Snuff Bottle Id please

    The attached bottle seems to clearly be a molded amber American snuff bottle. It has bubbles in the glass and an applied top suggesting pre-1900. The problem I am having in identifying the bottle is the embossed bottom. It has a pair of spectacles (or pince-nez) with a chain. The chain seems...

    What Is It?

    Picture 2 is the bottom. There is no embossing, it is a smooth bottom with a conical indentation. What would you like to see about the bottom? I agree it is a pretty bottle, and even though it may not have much value, it is still pretty. Thanks for the comments.

    What Is It?

    I'm not sure if this belongs here or before 1900. The seam does not go through the top and is a fairly rough, though straight seam. There are air bubbles in the glass, the bottom has a round or conical indentation with glass flow inside to one side, there are turning marks on the neck. The...
