    New to the group and a ever growing collection

    Hi. Welcome to the site. I have a question concerning a fruit jar in picture #7. The jar appears to be "The Marion Jar Mason's Patent Nov.30th 1858". This is a fairly common jar in Aqua colored glass, but is the jar pictured clear (colorless) glass? If so, that is a pretty scarce jar rarely seen...

    That's a really good looking flask. I've always liked that style of flask with slug plate embossing. Congrats on a great bottle.

    Lafayette script aqua jar

    The Lafayette jar was manufactured by the Hartford Fruit Jar Company of Hartford, Connecticut circa 1884-1889. The jar was produced in three variations. 1) "Lafayette" in script lettering, 2) "The Lafayette" in block lettering, & 3) "Lafayette" in script lettering below a profile of the man...

    1800s Purple Kerosene Oil Lamp.

    Wow, I really like that. Great looking piece in a great color as well. I've dug a handful like that over the years, but they were always snapped in two at the stem. I still amazes me that stuff like that can be pulled from a creek/river with little or no damage at all. Terrific find.

    Picked These Up at Bottle Show.

    The green slug plate is a very attractive bottle. The wires look pristine. Very nice pick up.

    Speed Kills, Milk Bottle.

    A very nice unusual milk. I've never heard of something like that on a milk bottle before.

    What type of seal and lid would this jar have?

    The glass lid and jar do not belong together. The jar is a Safety Valve (RB #2538) & is rather common. The closure for the jar is a metal band clamp & glass lid, just not the one pictured. The glass lid in your pics would be correct for a couple of different jars: 1) B & B (RB #181), 2) The...

    Trying to put a value on Jars

    A "Red Book" (The Collector's Guide To Old Fruit Jars) would be the best source of information, but if you do not have access to a copy, go to the website of North American Glass. In the archives section use the search tool to review jars similar to the ones you have pictured that have sold in...

    Killer druggist, but broken

    Killer little bottle

    The Red Book lists jars in alphabetical order. 1648-5 is the numerical reference for that particular jar. #1648-5 only lists the jar as a Bead Seal variation, rather than the Shoulder Seal variation in your pics. I do agree that it is a Ball-made jar. Is there any faint or erased embossing that...

    Late night Dig!!!

    Never heard of it before. My guess would be some sort of medicinal beverage, maybe to tip toe around the Prohibition laws????? Interesting bottle, though.

    Assortment of some nice bottles!

    The green JSP & amber medicinal whiskey are terrific looking bottles. Can't help you out concerning the history of the whiskey bottle though, as I am strictly a jar collector. But you got some very nice bottles for a decent price, I would imagine.

    Relics and some glass from my very cold short dig the other day!!!!

    I used to love digging up random stuff like that. Everything back then was just so ornate. Cold weather aside, looks like a fun dig.
