    I just went out for a walk!

    Yes, it’s a torpedo, probably ginger beer from Ireland. Late 1800’s my guess.

    The ink is a Covill #435, attributed to manufacture in France. A nice find!

    TSP overnight soak

    The TSP overnight bath loosened up the dirt and hard thick crud but nothing for film deposits or sick glass. Good for the dirt is about it. On the other hand, a 1/4 teaspoon in dishwasher or 1/4 cup in washing machine with regular detergents works miracles. Was ready to throw out new 3 hour...

    Is this a type of stopper?

    Don’t recognize it as a stopper but may be for an electrical application. Looks like insulator material. Someone may have a better idea.

    Help identifying this bottle

    Great comment. Always confusion about “whittling”. A glass blower told me a cold iron molds and hot glass produced steam which resulted in the whittled look. Anyone else heard this?

    New to the collection

    I didn’t want to get too detailed about the “vrip, vrip, vrip” because I was worried you’d think I was strange but forgot we were all kids once! That sound.

    New to the collection

    My brother and I would get bags of those WWII troops and have wars for hours. When we got older, we would put them on sticks and light them on fire then drip the burning melted plastic on fire ant beds! No we did not become psychopaths or torture pets, just hated fire ants.

    Some with this bottle please

    Should have said “As most bottles manufacture dates are not easily distinguishable from 1700’s thru early 1800’s,”

    Some with this bottle please

    For us, it’ll probably be context or association with other identifiable objects in a controlled dig. As most bottles are not easily distinguishable from 1700’s thru early 1800’s, we hope we can dig an associated privy. If we find one with layers of relics only associated with a specific time...

    TSP overnight soak

    I found it on Google. It’s a French absinthe manufacturer. Bottle had to be made between 1895 and 1910. The company opened the factory in 1895 and made until 1910 when it was banned.
