    Differences between "APPLIED LIP" and "TOOLED LIP" on antique handmade glass bottles

    Hello group, I wanted to post this as it's own thread, as I posted this comment earlier on another thread, and realized it will get buried in the middle of gobs of other comments, and not be so easy to find. I really hope this will help and not hurt! If nothing else, check out the webpage...

    Bovril Bottles

    I picked these up from a fellow bottle collector in my area. These are Bovril paste bottles from between the 1880s and 1910s. In this set, there is one 8 oz, two 4 oz and one 1 oz bottles. I think they're a cool find.

    Diggers, I'm looking for bottles with these marks on bottom

    Hi, I'm looking for bottles actually made in Louisville, Kentucky, at several glass factories that operated there in the late 19th century. Many of these bottles are just ordinary, rather unremarkable "utility" type bottles that are otherwise "slick" except for the base embossing. For...

    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...
