    Clear Druggist / Pharmacist / Drug Store / Apothecary bottles with a "Crescent Moon" logo on the base

    Hello, I have a small project in which I am going to start compiling a list of known clear glass druggist bottles that bear a "Crescent Moon" mark on the bottom. It is a thin "sliver" of the moon, and varies in appearance, sometimes it's more curved or rounded on some bottles compared to...

    Differences between "APPLIED LIP" and "TOOLED LIP" on antique handmade glass bottles

    Hello group, I wanted to post this as it's own thread, as I posted this comment earlier on another thread, and realized it will get buried in the middle of gobs of other comments, and not be so easy to find. I really hope this will help and not hurt! If nothing else, check out the webpage...

    "French Lustre" bottle - Has anyone EVER seen this bottle before?

    Hi all, I thought I would post this just to see if I can get any feedback...... I bought this bottle several years ago (can't remember exactly where or when) but it must have been a random purchase at a flea market or antique mall somewhere in IL, OH, IN or KY. I am intrigued by the bottle. I...

    I run across this video on YouTube by accident. Not sure if this has been posted before. Lots of interesting info about how bottles are made, with some footage about Applied Color Label bottles (ACL), there are some soda bottles seen on the production line), and other aspects of machine-made...

    An idea for displaying special / interesting bottle and glass shards

    Maybe someone has posted this before, but I just thought this would be worth passing along. I thought it would be a neat idea to display a small collection of shards ("better" shards that are too nice to throw away) such as part of a bottle in a scarce color, or with attractive embossing...

    Diggers, I'm looking for bottles with these marks on bottom

    Hi, I'm looking for bottles actually made in Louisville, Kentucky, at several glass factories that operated there in the late 19th century. Many of these bottles are just ordinary, rather unremarkable "utility" type bottles that are otherwise "slick" except for the base embossing. For...

    Is this Ball Perfect Mason pint jar, "SCA" or "NUKED"?

    I am posting this for someone else......calling all BALL PERFECT MASON specialists and collectors.........is this a case of SCA (naturally darkened by the sun) or a case of Irradiation? (I say nuked, but not a serious collector of these).... The owner says the color is much fainter (closer to...

    Dug Shaker / Bottle circa 1930s-1950s. C.G.CO. mark - unknown . Input , diggers?

    Hi all, I recently found 2 examples of a clear 10-paneled bottle, evidently a shaker, and I am wondering if it was (maybe) also sold in stores containing prepared mustard?? I discuss this shaker on my site, on this page: https://www.glassbottlemarks.com/glass-containers-inc-1933-c-1984/ Please...

    Whitney Glass Works jars (question about 'correct' lid and milkglass insert)

    Hi all,I have an idle question to pass along......it's nothing earth-shattering, just curious. I recently found a partial shard of a white milk glass mason-type fruit jar liner, and since it is broken I can't be sure of the entire lettering around the rim, but in the center is a bold "W inside...
