    Found some nice fruit jars! Searching for bottles at a 1920s era farm (part 2)

    After searching for hours I didn't find any dump. Before I was about to leave I followed a rock wall that led to a bottle dump alongside it, which continued for as far as I could see! Here are the finds from that dump today! I will definitely be going back, we have only just begun!

    Whitney Mason Patd 1858, Double Safety, big 1920s cobalt, Blown P.D. and Co. bottle, and a P. J. Ritter sauce bottle.
    Front (left to right):
    Musterole Cleveland milk glass, Sauer's Extract, Lysol, Kellogg's, and a butter dish.

    Can't wait to go back and find more!

    I've dug that P.J. Ritter here in Michigan a few times. Believe they were from Philidelphia or somewhere in PA. Keep Digging & Good Luck. LEON.

    The Whitney is nice and there are a bunch of varieties depending on where the dots are and how many above and below. Do you have a better pictures of the embossing?

    Hopefully I can go back this weekend if the weather warms up! There were signs of many old jars including cfgco. Monogrammed jars and a Glassboro Improved jar.
