    Black ink bottles from Providence Rhode Island, circa 1840-45

    That Burrington's Ink is amazing, what a great find as a family heirloom. I assume you probably already have one, but there is also a Burrington's Vegetable Croup Syrup bottle from Providence as well? It must be the same Burrington, RI isn't a very big place. PROVIDENCE RI RHODE ISLAND...

    Any idea on value?

    Here's a link to an old auction where a blue one sold for $240.00 in 2013. There's alots of search results for the cobalt blue but I couldn't find any aqua green examples like yours. Maybe it's a harder one to find? Either way, it's a great bottle...

    I hit the jackpot ... or bottle that is!

    I'd keep them and try to sell them, and whatever doesn't see quickly, right into the recycle bin. Always better to recycle them then leave them in the woods.

    WHAT BOTTLE GOT YOU STARTED COLLECTING BOTTLES AND WHY? (first collected bottle)

    Great idea for a thread! My bottle hunting journey began maybe 15 years ago. My buddy and I were out metal detecting along an old stone wall in the woods on his property in Eastern Connecticut and we stumbled on an old dump site. The first bottle we pulled out was a W.P. White, Danielson, CT...

    J. T Beukers, Schiedam found on a dive Alor Indonesia

    Cool bottle! I've had pretty good luck cleaning marine growth off bottles by soaking them in CLR. I agree that it looked really cool as found though too, but I would have had to clean it because it would have driven me nuts to see what it was!

    Anyone know how old this bottle is?

    Most likely a whiskey or other liquor. That's called a strap sided flask, and it's a nice one too. Some were embossed, but most were pretty plain and had paper labels, like yours. The lip on you're is sort of strange, unlike the ones pictured below. I don't think I've ever seen a strap sided...

    What would have been in this bottle?

    Does that bottle say "Certo" on it? It certainly looks like one, so my guess it either Certo or a similar products. https://www.google.com/search?q=certo+pectin+bottle&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjf79mZoPvrAhXBknIEHcBDBEwQ_AUoAnoECBAQBA&biw=1920&bih=940

    H.w. Spurr and Co. Boston mass.

    Apparently the H.W. Spurr & Co of Boston was a merchant who sold many products. I was able to find reference the H.W. Spurr & Co dealing in tobacco, seafoods, molasses and extracts, and several references to the H.W. Spurr Coffee Co. H.W. apparently referred to Howard W Spurr, the owner. Here is...

    Beautiful bottle! Here's an excerpt I found on an M.H. Smith opening a pharmacy in New York city at Madison Ave and 76th Street in 1897. It's in the upper left hand column...
