    Galveston Dig

    Very cool bottles. Have you ever found anything with the name Sampson on it? My great grandfather was a prominent doctor there through the hurricane. I think he moved away in 1902 or 1903. The Arthur F. Sampson house survived the storm and is still there in the historic district

    What's the best ketchup bottles

    Finally did something with my catchup bottles. They are not worth much, but now look a lot nicer than before. All but one of the bottles were manufactured in California

    Came up out of the back yard today

    They are common in California as well. What is cool about them is that though they were mass produced, they were hand finished and each one is a bit different

    Clorox and Clo-White

    I have a number of them from the late 20's through the 40's. I display them in my laundry room and it makes a nice decoration for an otherwise utilitarian space.

    How old is this bottle please

    I have had success with denture cleaner. i immerse the bottle in water and then add a tablet or two with some of the tablet inside the bottle. Then I leave it overnight. The next day with a sponge and bottle brush I am able to get most if not all of the accumulated dirt and sludge off.

    The remaining mysteries

    Thanks CB, The fifth bottle also has quite a few air bubbles. My guess is foreign wine bottle. Any thoughts as to why the bottle labeled fourth bottle (third post in the sequence) has an offset seam? That seems very strange.

    The remaining mysteries

    Thanks CB. toilet water would make sense. Ale bottles from Europe turn up where I dive. They were imported for gold rush miners. When you said the fourth, were you referring to the one with pictures labeled fifth bottle, or pictures labeled fourth bottle?
