    H.K Wick & Co. Glass Paperweight

    I picked up this glass paperweight from an estate sale along with a box of bottles a few years back. Never found out much about the company, or any history on who H.K Wick was. I just uncovered it again while going through some things and thought it was cool so I figured I would share. If anyone...

    1976 Anchor Hocking Pint Bicentennial Jar, still full!

    I'm in a bind with this jar. I found it in the woods like this, with contents still inside. I don't know what is in it. Maybe apple butter? Anyhow, the lid is completely stuck. Nothing I've tried has worked. I'm about ready to get a Dremel tool and cut the lid off. But there's risk in damaging...

    1974 Anchor Hocking Retirement Bottle (43 Years)

    I recently acquired this bottle that was made in 1974 at the Anchor Hocking Lancaster, Ohio plant, given to the late Ralph Newkirk for 43 years of service. It is extremely rare and I cannot find another example of it. Note the 3D look of the bottle and the interesting scene with a man working...

    What is this beautiful glass piece?

    Today while out on a bottle adventure I found something unexpected. Whatever it is I know it has to be good. It was in an area with bottles in the 1900-1950 range, if that helps. Diameter is 2 3/4" at the widest point. To me it looks like a light lens for a vintage car but I could be wrong. What...

    Cobalt Blue Unknown Bottle

    I was wondering what type of contents this bottle would have in it. Or what glass maker it is. I've only ever found one of them. All it has on the bottom is a number 6, which could literally mean anything.

    Glass Slag/Cullet Rocks

    I was wondering if anyone collects or looks for glass slag/cullet rocks, which are the remnants of glass that hardened inside furnaces and are often found near old glass factories. Rounded pieces of glass resembling river rocks can also be found in waterways if you look very carefully. Here is...

    Arizona insulators

    Here in Arizona no one really collects. Here's a few someone gave me. I melt them to make lighting fixtures.

    Unusual glass jar lid with patent dates

    Can anyone tell me anything about this lid? It is glass, rises up in the middle, and has no threads. Doesn't appear to be one of the flat lids you use with a ring either. Definitely not the ceramic insert in a zinc lid. I'll try to attach some pics. In the middle, where it's raised, there...
