    Mystery bottle No 1

    From my California river finds this week is this dark, nearly black bottle. It has no seams, an applied top, some tooling marks on the neck and near the bottom. There are faint horizontal lines on the body that can be seen in the light, but the body is smooth. Any ideas?

    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...

    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?

    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...

    Vernors Soda Bottle

    I found a bottle while diving off the coast of Southern California. The label is gone, but just below the neck is the embossed words "The One and Only." My internet research tells me that this is a Vernors Ginger Ale bottle. By construction it does not look too old. Around the heel is a...
