Some beautiful finds there! I'm really curious about those cobalt blob tops as well. Assuming you're in California those are likely some extremely good finds. I think I also spy a pontilled ink in that box. Plus lots of local druggists. I'd love to be finding stuff like that!

you come by a diggers dream.you got some $ there in bottles. Id take the whole week off of work and go get muddy all week. I'd get what you can get while you can get it because after that whatever's down there may never ever be seen again.did ya clean off that green slender tall bottle in the back? I'd like to see what that looks like cleaned off.

Yes, capers indeed. Looks continental European in origin. And wow those two you posted are beautiful! Like Kheidecker said, those are worth serious money. The ink is even better than I expected.

Wow, Some nice bottles there, The Cobalt Blue Bottles are Killer. Some of those look like 1850 &/or 1860's with the open pontil Ink & iron/graphite pontil. Definitely go back for more. That's a diggers Dream find. Congrats. LEON.

This one ? all these bottles are packed with silt I think that's what saved them .
YES, That one. that one is a Hutch or Hutchinson Bottle. What does it say in front of the Casey? Doesn't look like Owen? Curious. THANKS, LEON.

Surprise me very much to see many survivors from such an event.
Tell me is the green bottle at left side of the pickles (hexagonal) a poison one?
The other green tall one behind is interesting to me and the amber "female" shaped (behind the pottery) too.
