The tiny jug is cream colored milk glass.
Cream glass?
Next to it is a pressed glass boat.

Hi Roy,

Nice little haul. In your 5th pic, does the almond shaped milk glass have any embossment? It kind of looks like the '40's aspirin bottle...

Hi Len

I'm not sure. As I'm not home now I will take a look and maybe a picture of it in the morning. It has what I would call a shield shape indented on the front.
The other milk glass jar has flowers embossed on front and back.

Hi Len

No embossing at all on the milk glass
Here is a picture with the cap on.

Also a picture of the embossed bottom of the little cream colored jug.
It says A.D. MCKELVY NY NY 1&3/4 ozs

Hi Digger 57,

I'm sure you are right, they will have their day , some are probably collecting them now. I usually don't bring them home unless they are a little different, but then I never used to bring the coke bottles home either... Roy

Hi Roy,
MCKelvy is slightly unusual for central CT. Its kinda cool.

To respond to Digger 57's question--not really in our lifetime. Here in CT I'm thinking the plastic grocery bags with their respective stores printed on them could become the next big thing if more states ban them. Yup, another "you heard it here first." ;)

Hey len you could be on to something. Just think you would not have to dig for them you could just pull them from trees

Ahh, but the investment in special storage conditions needed to preserve the plastic might get prohibitively expensive. I'm thinking cool, dark and inert atmosphere for archival preservation. Then again, perhaps merely bagging the bags in Mylar would suffice?
