    Milk and Jelly

    Found a new-to-me dump today, while doing some prospecting near an 1860’s house, nothing of that age, but a couple nice St. Louis Dairy Co. half pints, and a Moores and Ross half pint, as well as a Crystal jelly jar lid.

    Paneled bottle and a WWI cartridge while prospecting

    black opaque bottle, seems old

    Can you get a close-up of the neck with stronger lighting? Trying to figure out if it’s an applied or tooled lip (and also if it’s dip mold or turn-mold)

    St. Louis Quality (with Crown motif) by Root Glass Co.

    Found this at a new dump site on the surface, can’t find any other examples online, just the deco Quality bottles. Date code is 15, mold code is 1653
