These are some old pictures from when I was first starting in bottles. Before then I had been a hardcore treasure hunter - so there's alot more treasure artifacts on the shelves than bottles. I have more display cases nowadays for the bottles and alot more varieties than pictured here. I don't know why I haven't taken any photos lately, will do so and share one of these days.

I like painting the more common bottles while leaving the rare ones as they were found. I think the older and rarer bottles look interesting when placed near or among artifacts from the same time period instead of just with other bottles, it gives a greater perspective on the time period imo. Like the first image above the bottle with the two X's is from the same year as the sword behind it and the silver spoon in front of it. A snapshot of life in 1850 America if you will. The pepper shaker on the left of it is from 1718, so I'll need a golden age of piracy onion bottle one of these days to go with it, I'll keep looking.
