    Those are both great finds but the amber bottle is a real winner

    Curious, are you asking for permission to dig up these privies and how on earth do you find one?? I'm new to the bottle hunting world, but I'm absolutely hooked!

    Realized I hadn't added to this post for a while. Been out digging quite a lot the last few months and found a few treasures to add to my collection. If anyone knows what the item with the Chinese characters is, I'd love to hear.

    Really nice finds there! That Chinese bottle is really interesting, where I grew up there were loads of Chinese bottles but I've never seen one like that before. I asked my friend who can read Chinese but the only word she was able to make out was "water". My best guess is that it's an inkwell or maybe some sort of paint pot.

    Good stuff. That citrate is a killer. Love the embossing.

    Thanks so much for the comments and the information! I do love the citrate...it was one of my bucket list Galveston bottles and I was shocked to see it come out of the hole.

    Went out yesterday...extremely hot and not all that productive but did find one of the Davids' ink bottles (turtle) in amber, which is a first for me. I've seen them in aqua and teal but never laid eye on an amber one.
