    Coke bottles

    Hey yall, I found this 6 pack at an estate sale and been trying to figure out a date and whether they are worth anything. All of the bottles have different cities on them and I can’t find any dates anywhere. Just the patent date on the bottle. Any help is appreciate, thanks!

    Early drug store history and why we preserve?

    What's important to me is preserving the history and stories, good or bad of early drug stores or apothecaries. By the late 1800s, pharmacists or (druggists) came to a crossroads. On one hand, they were medical professionals and on others, they had a business to run. They had to balance these...

    Tiny bottles

    The other day I found these three bottles all in one area. They are now the smallest bottles I've ever found. I don't think they can get much smaller than this. Two of them have Owens-Illinois marks and the round one has a keystone logo. Whatever was in them must have been very potent. The one...

    Bleach safe for ACL bottles?

    I was wondering if it is safe to soak or apply bleach to ACL bottles with white lettering that has dirt on it. Since it is so strong I didn't know if it would break down the paint or not. Thanks for any help.

    Two broken pontils- How old are they?

    Today I came across two pre-1900's bottles that were sadly broken. I'm just trying to find out how old they are, to determine if it's worth going back again and trying to find some intact ones. I don't generally know a lot about bottles from this era.

    Good Ole' Bottles

    I sent a couple of bottles to Cindy for cleaning back around April. Got a couple of updates by email a few months afterwards. Since August I've heard nothing and had no answers to emails and phone calls. Anyone having similar problems? I'd really like my bottles back :) Duncan.
