    Green 1929(?) Nehi bottle

    The recent post about the Royal Crown Ginger Ale labels intrigued me, and I went searching for information myself. I found a 1943 painting containing what looks to be a green ACL bottle. Thinking I might have seen something like that before I went digging through my old digging finds and found...

    Almost had a new addition today

    After finding an amber Nashville Coca Cola in an antique store recently for $12, I was feeling pretty lucky. So today decided to take a walk through the woods, which I haven't done in many years. After avoiding a lot of swampy land I found a piece of high ground with a lot of the green turn-mold...

    I've no idea what these are. Master inks, maybe?

    These bottles were found during a dive on a ship that was sunk in 1905 and belong to an acquaintance of mine. The bottom of one is incised 'Turnad Paris.' They are small... four to maybe 6 ounces and about 4 or 5 inches tall. No pour spout on either. Turnad is, I believe, still in business. Just...

    New addition. Is this a barber bottle?

    Picked this up today because I love milkglass, but I'm not sure what it is. The inside of the lip is rough, so it must have had a stopper. There is a floral pattern painted on it, and on the bottom, right next to the pontil, the number 39 is painted. Any ideas? Tomorrow I will try to get it out...

    Quart sized Codd bottle?

    Bottle wiki?

    Has anybody ever considered consolidating the information about bottles & manufacturers into one site? It would be so much easier not to have to search six different sites just to research one bottle.

    A bit pricey

    My 11-year-old son loves to collect poison bottles, so I try to keep an eye on those listed on eBay. However, I think this one is a bit out of his price range. Is it really valued that high?

    Fraud alert

    Just noticed that of the four items listed here, three of them have been irradiated. The seller is notorious for irradiating them and not telling people that the 'rare' color is artificial. Hope none of you are being scammed or taken in.

    NuGrape Gold Dot ACL

    I met a person recently who has a few local art-deco bottles that he is not interested in selling. He also had one ACL, and it's one I had never heard of. The label on this is in terrible condition, but I'm looking for rarity/value of it based on a pristine example. Any ideas? Back label...
