Is it possible to clean the olive jar without ruining the label
You could clean it carefully. Damp cloth for the outside glass only. I wouldn't get the label wet. That is crazy to find a bottle in a bottle. It had to be an olive bottle, right? Amazing!

I was shocked when I dumped the dirt out of the big one that looks like a thermos I'm a little one came out. Not to mention finding many Olive bottles not knowing what they really were though. I did have a really good day I'll post the rest of them couple hours

Wow that's in great condition, best condition label I've seen pulled from a dump I think. You'll need to clean it very slowly and carefully. I'd use a damp q-tip around the label. Not sure what would be the best tool to clean the inside, I'd probably try to put something together that's as close as possible to a q-tip but ten times bigger. You probably don't want to be having any flowing water getting near the label.

Colors of the houses remarkable, not only a dump this was a burn dump. Thanks for the suggestion.

Nice. After all the naked olive jars I’ve found, it’s nice to see what one looks like with its label on.

Ditto, I find lots of them with just a little bit of the label left not knowing what they were and then this. It's those little things that make you happy
