Seltzer bottle from the Evers-Rehm Co. of 419-421-423 E. 24th St. NEW York. This bottle was made by B.&M. S. Co. - the Bottler's & Manufacturer's Supply Company of Long Island City, New York, which operated from 1897-1920. It has a tooled crown and a tiny one inch wide base, very unstable.
Scored a number of firsts today down at the 1924-capped landfill.
Found my first complete 1 Pt. whiskey jug and then a second even nicer 1 Pt. whiskey jug.
Found my first 19th century clay pipe bowl fragment, stamped: "Dublin Pipe No. 1".
Scored this huge clay marble, a shooter, as well...
Interesting piece of US history. Rupert opened the brewery in 1913 in Manhattan. He later bought the Yankees in 1915 and opened Yankee Stadium in 1923. He employed some of the biggest legends of baseball including Babe Ruth. Hall of fame induction in 2013. And it all started with this beer.
Found these canning jars in an old metal trash can - no kidding!- when cleaning out my Mom's place. Any idea of age & value would be appreciated as we are interested in selling them. What's the deal with this Crown jar w/o a Crown symbol? Any info would be appreciated. The history has been fun...
