    Old Mexico

    I was reading a bit about Mexico and Prohibition. It seems that during this period Tijuana grew from a dusty little town to a quite large one. Americans had to have been going across the border to get a legal drink during the prohibition years which might explain Tijuana's rapid growth back...

    Old Mexico

    I found this (with contents) at the Wellfleet Drive In Flea mkt this Fall. Eight bucks later it was mine, comes with a handy shoulder cord for drink while U walk activities. This is a BIM bottle with an applied lip; I figure it's from the prohibition era. Rum Brandy. And no, I did not try a sip.

    U S MAIL

    I found this w/a search on US mailboxes;. Something must have inspired the maker to construct a mold like this; could it be related to or celebate the introduction of a new style of mailbox? Just throwing this out there. By 1891 the U.S. Post Office Department had over 48,400 letter boxes of...

    This Followed Me Home

    Thanksgiving in Maine this week along with a bit of antiquing. This was the result. :) Found in a dusty corner of a western Maine antique shop. Would this one tumble well? I'd love to see it a bit cleaner.

    Thanks for the wiki link; funny how the use of a descriptor can vary so wildly.

    Requesting Information on Skilton Foote & Cos Bunker Hill Pickles

    Can anyone show a photograph of the lighthouse bottle? I've only seen the one with the Bunker Hill monument. Here's my example. One of my ancestors, Eleazor French lost an arm to a cannon ball at Bunker/Breed's Hill. He survived and brought his severed arm home to Dunstable where it was buried...

    Two medicines

    Yep. Smooth bases. The HARRISONs ICELAND BALSAM has a lovely pot stone in the blank side. What the heck was medicinal Balsam? When I think of balsam, I think of Fir trees. :confused:

    diggermeister returns (so?)

    another dump find. Interesting that these don't seem to suffer from 'sickness' something in the glass?

    A neighbor down the street has a house built in 1840; it looks like it's straight out of an Adams Family cartoon. It was built on brick columns and there was about 3 feet of clearance below. I was doing some repairs there and spotted a pretty neat pontiled bottle, sick as hell, but it still...

    Help identify this bottle

    The stopper is a figural copy of a wired champagne cork; now that is interesting.

    New to collection, need help

    Thanks! :) Nothing else on the bottom or heel of this bottle. I don't know, but maybe you do. When did crush bottles change from a smooth neck to a wrinkled surface?
