Great find Catcat. That is Old Sol cleaning product from Baltimore MD was only around a short time . They come in a screw top as well which is rarer because it was only made for a short time. If you every visit the Bromo Tower Museum in Baltimore they have one with a label . They always sell great for me people love elephants I guess haha . I have dug a few in my time.
That’s awesome info thank you! Is it true they only go for around 20 bucks? I think I would keep it for that price personally lol.

I would not care if it was machine made; I would not care if screw-threaded version is rarer; I would simply be tickled with a find like that!

Oh, and I would keep it.

yes unfortunately but they do sell great at that price . I mean not to bad for a free bottle though. It looks good on a shelf though .
Yea I agree although I have to keep telling myself with some of these bottles, that I dig them out of the ground... that I get them for FREEEE lol and it not me being greedy or anything it’s more or less finding great value in them personally because I dug it with my own two hands. I pulled this amazing thing from the earth and 20 bucks will be gone faster then it took me to dig it lol. So I think for those types of bottles they are best just to keep. Because all in all the memory of the excitement I felt finding it every time I look at that elephant...is worth way more then a small amount of cash ya know?

I agree when my dug bottles and crocks are priceless to me because I put in the effort and pulled a piece of history from the dirt it is an amazing feeling . It definitely makes it tough to put a price on something we are so passionate about that is why my collection just keeps growing haha .

Exactly! I want an intact glass insulator so bad. Every time I go digging I specifically look in places where I think I’d find one. I keep finding Severely broken ones so I went online to buy one and I just completely lost interest almost instantly. I guess it works in that way as well. I don’t think I could be a buyer. I get why others do it but for me personally half the beauty comes from the experience. Plus I’m too poor for that hobbie hahaha. Now digging is alllll for me. Just like my dad always said “if it’s for free, it’s for me!!”

Thats wild. I found a bunch of those glass power insulators in the old milk house here at my house just laying there. Maybe I'll have to pull them out and clean them up. Didnt even put much thought into them when I saw them, but after reading this forum for a week or so, they seem like a pretty good find!
