Howdy, curious if anyone out there can help identify this clear glass "DIXIE" bottle a relative found in the woods here in Eastern North Carolina decades ago. Appears to be 10oz so assumed a soda perhaps? Couldn't find a single one that resembled it when searching Google a bunch of different...
Some finds from the hunt I conducted yesterday.
Included is a perfect condition tooled-crown Theo Young amber beer bottle. Theo Young operated from 1884-1906, meaning this bottle has likely been sitting undisturbed in the open for at least 118 years, that's 6 years prior to the sinking of the...
Conducted a short dig this afternoon at the 1910-era site. Uncovered three bottles including a large circle slug blob:
From left to right:
1. Charles J. Fritz Bowery Bay House 924-926 Steinway Ave. L.I.C.
2. The John Eichler Brewing Co.
3. The Ebling Brewing Co. New York.

Went back to the 1910-capped clay pit bottle dump that I have been extensively excavating since January. It is very difficult digging but the trade off is the bottles often come out in great condition. In about two hours of digging I recovered three blob-top beer bottles, one tooled lip med, and...
An unusual little bottle I found made for Broe and Gorman of 404-6 East 60th Street NY. It looks kind of like a Hutchinson but it isn't, it would have been sealed from the top with a porcelain lightning stopper or something similar.
Best and last find of January 2023! Behold a rare star-embosed beer bottle from James Everard's Breweries! One of the few Irish brewers in the predominantly German NYC beer brewing industry, James Everard's buisness lasted from 1885 to 1926.
The brewery operated at 3 East 134th...
I just got this 1942 Duquesne Brewing quart bottle in full ACL paint, with the Internal Revenue Tax Paid lettering. Made by Glenshaw Glass, it has a small "N" code on the crown, meaning made in 1942. The front label says copyright 1934 which means they came up with that design just after...
