Today my buddies and I dug through a huge 1930s-1950s dump which produced some really nice cans, milks, and other stuff. We also dug the spot where I found those state hospital bottles and I found 10 more of them! Here are my finds:

Back from Left to Right:
Odd newer jug (out of frame), Stoneware Preserve Crock, Mathiu Beverages Taftville, CT (base embossed art deco soda), S.S. Lamb from Mystic, CT (too bad about the paint loss, but it still displays), Norwalk Dairy from Norwalk, CT (needs a soaking), Esso motor oil can, and an oddly threaded early whiskey.

Middle from left to right:
Milk Glass Pepper Jar, U.D.Co amber, Bending & Schlesinger inc Chemists New York, Bell & Conpany (inc) Manufacturing Chemist New York, 10 N.Y.S.H. Pharmacy Rochester, NY bottles, stoppers and some slick mini corkers.

All in all another killer day!

Thanks for looking,

Fantastic stuff! Are you willing to sell any? Especially the crockery ...nudge, nudge, wink wink!...? I have found a few 1940s soda bottles, at the city dump, where I have been doing "light duty"...I must post those.

Not selling yet, but I may find more crockery since I have barely scratched 25% of this place.

OK, thanks...but let me know when!!!
For crocks, I have to dig around (usually cellars!) up in NH and IL, as it is more plentiful than down here in FL. My folks have some great, large, crocks...2-5 gal...that go back to when my father's uncle ran alcohol from Canada into Manchester, in the 20s-30s. Some varied ginger bottles as well.
My wife is not a great fan of bottles and crockery, so most ends up in my work room!!

...that jug style crockery, on the left in the photo, is very cool.
