    My Ellicott City Bottle Collection

    I finally got some time to sit down and take individual pictures of all my different bottles from my hometown, Ellicott City, Maryland. I have dug, traded for, and bought the ones that I own but there are many more out there. Some of the milks from EC will cost me some big $$$ if I choose to buy them; that is if i can even find them. Here is the first bottle. A Christian Eckert blob top mineral water or soda type bottle from the 1880s. This one is fairly uncommon, but not super hard to get.

    Here is a A.B. Lewis bottle with an embossed anchor. It is another mineral water or soda type from around 1900. It has a balt loop seal so its not as old as the one in the previous picture. This one is fairly rare. Defenetly harder to get then the Eckert.

    Here is a T. Ridgley soda bottle from the 20s. This is one of the most common Ellicott City bottles.

    Here is a Budd's Carbonated Beverages soda bottle from the 30s. Taylor Ridgley owned this soda company. These are the bottles he produced later. They are also very easy to find.

    Here is one I recently dug. Its broken unfortunatly though. It is another Budd's soda bottle but in green. This one is dated 1934 and these green ones are much harder to find then the clear ones. Im gonna hold onto this one until I can get a replacement.

    RE: My Ellicott City Bottle Collection

    Here is a very rare whiskey flask from Ellicott City. John U. O'Brien Wines & Liquors. It is BIM with a key mold on the bottom and dates to around the late 1880s. I paid $100 for this one, but Im very proud to own one. I have seen 5 total in my time of collecting and they have all sold for more than what I bought mine for.

    Here is another Ellicott City whiskey bottle. This one is E.E. Malone. This one is much easier to find then the O'Brien, but still pretty uncommon. This one dates around 1920.

    RE: My Ellicott City Bottle Collection

    I actually dug both of these little paper label pill jars. They were both sealed when I dug them so that protected the labels. The left is Ellicott City Drug Company Dr Gassaway and the right is Patapsco Pharmacy Menj. Mellor Jr. The Gassaway dates to 1950 and the Patapsco dates to 1937.
