I found this bottle in the ruins of my 4th great uncles house in Pennsylvania. There were a bunch of bottle shards and pieces, and this was the only whole one. It is tall and thin, and blown in mold. I think it dates to the 1880s which is about the time my 4th Great uncle was murdered. I was wondering if this was a Worm Syrup bottle, an Opium bottle, or something else? It's about 4.5 inches tall.
I'm not sure what to make of this dish. I found it on the banks of the Ohio river, and usually I'm able to narrow stuff down to a specific time period, but not this one. There are no markings anywhere. I think it might be a pudding dish, because its quite small. I found it along a stretch that was producing shards of early 1910s milks, and modern ACL sodas, so it could be from any of those time periods. What's confusing me is the purpling. I thought that by 1910 or so, the ingredient that made glass purple in the sun was obsolete? It's not strong enough of a purple to make me think that the color was intentional.
