Different and unique is where it's at, every piece it's own character right?I sort of explained about my "style" in another post, but in case it isn't obvious by now it's a bit ecclectic with a few defining categories and themes. I collect mainly slick bottles and a few embossed ones, mainly pre-1900 but I do have a section of very nice early machine made bottles. some things I really like: odd and attractive shapes, unique and rare colors, oddballs with character, early pontils and utility bottles, and anything cool that just catches my eye.
if that bottle was embossed on a face woo-wee that sucker would be a killer piece even though it doesn't have writing it still sweet I like the color you could try some baby oil on a rag that could possibly get your cloudiness out but all in all that's a really nice bottleAlright, got some time to post a couple more. This one is an 1890s ammonia bottle with a really nice citron yellow green color. It's slick except for the little 3.A. embossing on the bottom. SUPER crude/whittled. It has a bit of haze staining but otherwise perfect condition.
Nice CobaltSome little late bright colored 1800s BIM slicks, all super clean and minty. think they are all medicines but definitely the cobalt is. These were all inexpensive bottles 10-$15 a piece on eBay. The one with the cork(probably original) is a three piece mold. The four sided one, I just love the shape and color combo, some nice tooling marks around the neck. The blue on the cobalt vial is just outrageous, and the glass is thick and crude and full of bubbles.
