    My Heartbreak Collection of Shards n Broken Bottles

    Sandchip this is for you. I am a hoarder of sorts, I just don't see how I cannot take these "if only they were whole shards n broken chipped cracked bottles" home with me. The ones you will see here are from a period of about 11-12years. The first is a Stoddard Flag Flask. I apologize in advance there will be alot of photos, but its 8 degree out and -20 with the wind chill. Last year they came up with a new term Polar Vortex to explain the cold now its the Bomb Cyclone. No its winter in Maine get used to it. The second is a big Bellarmine.

    The two pieces here were found at the site of the Granite Glass Works in Stoddard NH. If whole they would command some high dollar value. Im not sure if the second piece is a funnel or part of a breast pump. Any ideas?

    Here is the top of what would be a dream flask from Keene NH for me, and a possible base to a Pitkin flask

    Here is a piece Ive always wondered about the origin. Its pontilled and definitely a one of a kind as its hand crafted with decoration. Has anyone seen anything like this? Note the crackle pattern to the glass.

    Two different 1860s C. Heimstreet & Co. Troy N.Y. 8 sided Medicine Bottles, and a really crude Ayers Cherry Pectoral Lowell Mass. Also although not rare an English Citrate of magnesia, I love that blue!

    Two real Heartbreakers J K Palmer Chemist Boston two rare Stoddard bottles. The funny thing about diving is you cant see the embossing underwater as its dark let alone feel the embossing because of the thick gloves. So I take everything to see it topside and often am so surprised there is something there.
