I found this while clamming in the Shrewsbury River by Sea Bright, NJ.
Itís from the Sea Bright Pharmacy. Curious as to itís possible age.
Form line ends in the neck and the top is chipped up pretty good.
My dad was a bottle digger years ago and I inherited part of his collection and have started collecting on my own. As I commercially clam some of the year I find some cool stuff. Just today I found a 60ís era Rolling Rock pony bottle and a ďRed RockĒ soda bottle circa 1940-50 (I think) I plan on posting more picks as I learn more.
Thanks in advance for any and all info. Iím still learning all the lingo so feel free to teach...
you can tell its old just by looking at the glass , there also might be books that would list the druggists and pharmacists from New Jersey or libraries which might have information on local history and such , that would help determine an exact year of use
Nice find! I especially like it since it's from the shore, I used to vacation down that way so shore antiques have a sort of nostalgia for me - even though obviously I can't remember when bottles like that were actually in use.
Nice Bottle!!!! You can probably research when and exactly where that pharmacy existed.
If your areas is anything like mine, I'd inspect the banks of that river. You might find much more!
One of the most fabulous pre-1900 garbage dumps in Chicago could be seen protruding from the banks of the north branch of the Chicago River. Now unfortunately under a shopping mall, one can still see stuff from this huge dump, sticking out from the river banks.
