I've been intrigued by these for years especially since I had never recovered one in 30 years of digging, diving and detecting.
Looks like I found a winner from 1875, too bad is what not whole, really would've made my day. It is a Cherry Toothpaste.
These Gosnells lids are unfortunately generally very common world wide and worth around $30 in good condition, These have a great pictorial . Your part lid would date to around 1880 and the blue one pictured could go back to the late 1860,s
Are you interested in an embossed stars bottle from 3 rivers?
Not Mine. I was 242 mi. away. Do you recall the ask price?
Saw one there yesterday, or was it the same bottle? it looked like a nice bright example.
Here's a complete jar
Great looking bottle.
Recent vacant lot finds.
Zimmer's Pharmacy (couldn't find anything on this one in Philly).
Sadly the base has 2 heel cracks.
Whitall Tatum base mark: WT & Co / Patent Jan 24 88 / USA
Found this Victorian era doll head the other day. Anyone know what the backmark means? All Google's been able to tell me is that it's German and dates betw 1860–1890. Any additional info welcome.
