    Info please

    Bought this aqua bottle today along with two little amber meds for $4 total. Anyone have info on this one. I’m assuming this is a blob top?? Abraham Klinkowstein wines & liquors. Bottom says Boley Mfg co NY. Can’t find anything on it. Lots of bubbles and swirls, and unfortunately a lot of small...

    Finds today.

    Haven’t been digging much. I’ve been busy opening up our shore house and my 1900s dump a)seems tapped out and b)getting overrun with weeds now and people, since it’s a park. So went today with low expectations but found a few interesting bottles. A nice local TREP milk in great condition, a 28...

    My display ”case”.

    Going to build a more permanent shelving/case at some point but for now a nice sunny front bay window does just fine. The wife actually likes the display or is at least tolerating it. Nothing fancy, no blob tops or hutches, but nearly all dug by me, a couple TOC type bottles like the SCA...

    Unmarked poison?

    Too frozen to dig in NJ, so I walked an abandoned commuter rail line. Found a Kruegers embossed beer 1950s, and a couple ACLs that I’ll try to leave alone for a few weeks until they dry out and acclimate. I like the chug a mug bottle. What about this blue bottle. Looks more like a bud lite than...

    Found my first Pepsi Steelman patent bottle yesterday and today bought 5 ACLs for literally a couple bucks each. Includes 2 of the same Steelman patent Pepsi bottles, one from Brockway glass, one Thatcher, and 3-7 oz sodas from Greenbrook NJ bottling. Looking for info on these GB bottles, the...

    Mid-century Sodas and some shout outs

    Okay, been on this site about 3 months and have learned a great deal from this group. Want to give a shout out to 3 in particular; UncleBruce, for his understanding that it's the friends you make, the thrill of the hunt and the intrinsic value in your finds (not $$) which matter; SodaBob for his...

    Champagne split and blob top.

    Found this dark green champagne or wine split yesterday on a coastal marsh nearby here in Jersey. No seams and very large kick up, plus an interesting lip. Also incredibly scratched. Based on prior posts here and google, would seem to be a late 1800/toc bottle. Any other insights? It’s a nice...

    Hires “medals and medallions”

    Can’t find too much on this one. A couple eBay examples and a reference to the medals and medallions advertising campaign apparently from the 20’s in the hiresbook.com. Has no mark or maybe a very faint one on base. Nice embossed medals below shoulder. At bottom has Hires/registered on one side...

    Two nice finds.

    Found a few bottles Sunday including two which are among the oldest and nicest yet. Got an old boar’s head mark Gordon’s gin bottle with a number 7 below the crazy looking boars head. Has London and England embossed on sides. This must be early 1900s I’m guessing. Couple dings and a hairline...

    Pre prohibition liquor bottles.

    As mentioned don’t think this site was active pre-1900. Have found several what I think are old pre prohibition liquor bottles. 2 are Charles Boldt I think with 2 serif B, so from 1900-1919 think. Lots of bubbles and imperfections. Not very ornate at all but... Questions. What are the large...

Posting overall snap shot and some groups with specific questions. First up, Mason jars and aqua. Couple ball jars, an atlas and others. Can’t find anything on...
