My main passion is old medicine bottles. But I'm apt to buy anything that strikes my fancy. I have milk, soda, whisky and misc other bottles. And if it's naturally turned purple by the sun, that has my wow factor! So I'm always looking for those.

Hello QueenBee, welcome to the sight. You like purple, like this? One pint Keystone Mason.

That’s a really pretty nuke! Not too dark, not too light.
Nuked as much as could be. I have a Hutch that is charm pop purple, very dark. Especially the mug base. The more Manganese there is in the glass the darker the resulting amethyst color will be.

I dont know exactly why but Nuked bottles makes me sad. Altered history I guess.
Everything i showed was nuked before I got them. All are common. I feel the same way about UV altered glass. Just not my taste. Others love it and don't mind.
