    Stoneware cone ink

    Nice find. I’ve never dug a stoneware cone, got a nice stoneware master ink last fall but that’s it.

    Decent finds

    There’s nothing wrong with a 1920s dump. I’ve dug plenty of em over the years. Had pretty good luck in a few of them. I’ve gotten some nice fruit jars and hit pockets of older stuff probably from a barn or attic clean out. Ya just never know. I like the ink too, unfortunate that it’s broken but...

    Decent finds

    As far as the dig yesterday goes- we decided to go explore and ended up finding a dump that was near a late 1700’s house. Didn’t find much, but there’s plenty more digging to be done there. I ended up with a jug, an open pontiled unembossed bottle, and a few other more common things. My buddy...

    I’ve never had any repairs done. Like you, I’m not a fan of doing it so this one will prob stay how it is.

    It’s not every day we dig stuff like that. Usually bottles that come out around here stain but these dumps were a lil different. I’ll try to get some more pics. We dug yesterday in a new spot and had a little success too. Glad to know someone else keeps the shards too.

    Decent finds

    Went for a couple digs with my two buddies last week, and I’d say we were pretty successful. One dump was loaded with Saratoga mineral waters. Only 3 came out intact but all said and done there was 3 dark amber star springs, 3 dark olive green DA Knowlton, 1 olive green clark and white, 3...

    Stubby jug shaped bottle

    As far as mold lines- there’s one coming up the side, gets more defined on the shoulder and is tooled away low on the neck. The other side is the same way but the line is very hard to see. The base is very slightly kicked up and smooth. I’ll try to get a good picture of it later on.

    Stubby jug shaped bottle

    I’ve got one here that I can’t really figure out. It’s stubby, and very heavy. Stands about 5” tall and almost 3” wide at the base. Was dug this past summer, and most everything else coming out of the same hole was pontil age. This is a little newer, my guess is 1870s. Dark amber color, tooled...

    At the moment I’m not interested in selling. I’ll be sure to let you know if I change my mind.

    Magnetic mineral water bottle info

    I’m a long ways from Michigan, but that’s a good idea. I guess I’ll bring it to a couple upcoming local shows and see if I can get a value.

    Magnetic mineral water bottle info

    Good info, thanks. That age seems right, and so does the connection to that pittsburgh bottle maker. I bought a collection for cheap money and this was buried in the bottom of a box of common bottles. A nice little surprise, but I’m still curious of its value.

    Magnetic mineral water bottle info

    Thanks for the reply. I thought I’d seen one or two on eBay in the past, but couldn’t remember for sure. Still hoping someone out there knows what it’s worth.

    Magnetic mineral water bottle info

    I recently acquired another mineral water bottle to add to my collection. I cannot find any info on this one, not in any of my books or online. I did a search in the forums and did come across one thread but there was very little info, so if anyone has any info on value or anything I’d...
