Maybe Heading in the Right Direction

Hi Guys,
I've been digging a spot on my property for a while now. Tons of shards, and the full ones I've pulled are primarily 1920s-'50s. I'm also finding stuff like drinking glasses, and a lot of broke china, as well as broken crockery.
Yesterday was a bit more encouraging. I dug a Wyeth & Bro. Phila. with what I believe is a tooled lip. It looks as if it's pretty common, clear glass. Thd strangest thing happened, though. It had a small (maybe 1" long) crack near the shoulder on obverse last night while cleaning it. Tonight when I went to photo it, the crack had expanded, easily 3x's as long as last night. Could this have been due to the hot water I used to clean it?
I also found a cobalt Phillips in good shape.
The other one shown is a rather pretty perfume (still has the scent), with a unique logo. Has wood cork stopper with the crown and post still in OK shape. I'm wondering if I could get any info on these. I hope I'm getting into an older part of the dump area, given that Wyeth..
Thanks!

Yeah if that Wyeth isn't a late throw it means you've found the earlier part of the dump, that one looks to be around 120-130 years old. Shame about the crack, that can happen when taking bottles out of the ground though, I think it's mostly due to temperature change. At least it happened to a Wyeth, which is a pretty common bottle, and not something rarer!

Most likely temperature change. I accidentally broke a glass mug by putting it under the tap running cold water in it, after I had microwaved hot water in it for tea. It did a clean split right in half.

Thanks, Guys,
I'll be more careful when I wash them. I'll be digging there again today. Hopefully I'll have something worthwhile to post tonight. Any thoughts on age of the perfume? At least I think it's perfume.

Perfume looks early machine made to me - 1900-1910? Cool logo! No idea what company it relates to, though.
Thanks! Older than I thought. Very cool logo. I couldn't find anything close online. I like the aqua color.
