    Odd 2oz Ball jar anyone?

    I found this guy under my house. It’s an odd size and also has odd threading pattern on its lip. I know they can be dated by the different “Ball” logo styles, but it’s juuust a little too small to clearly see it.

    Help ID this stoneware bottle?

    I found this while digging in my back yard. (I live in New Orleans, 9th Ward) It was about 18” deep and it’s location was likely the site of the privy. I can’t quite make out the stamp but my best guess is “H KENNEDY 8 GLASGOW”. Anyone have a better guess? I’m so curious about it!

    Is it a Medicine or a Bitters?

    This is a dark aqua A Schriener N O (New Orleans) bottle I dug up in 7th Ward in New Orleans. It was featured on Peachridge Glass's website where Marianne Dow said it was listed in the Bitters Encyclopedia by Ring and Ham as being a bitters. However, there is some kerfuffle as it appears to be...
