This white bottle was found in the basement of the ruins of a house. It is machine-made but there are no markings at all on it. It was one in a wooden case of 12. The shape is that of a soda bottle, but I don't know of any sodas or beer that came in milk glass. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

The second bottle is also machine made with Vancouver Canada on the bottom and UD LTD, a D inside a diamond shape, and a number 6. The writing in the slug plate says Burbon Whiskey in a script and crackling in the background. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

I bought two antique perfume bottles with glass-stoppers. I mixed up the stoppers and put the wrong one in one of them and now it is stuck. Any suggestions on how to remove it. I don't want to pull too hard on it because I'm afraid of cracking or worse breaking the bottle. Thank You

Wow yeah that's an odd one indeed. Could we see a picture of the base? Never seen a milk glass soda before.

Try running hot water over the outside of the bottle without getting any on the stopper, or immersing the stopper in ice water while the bottle is slightly warm. GOOD LUCK.

United Distilleries was US owned & operated during prohibition and had their distillery on the waterfront on the Fraser River delta. Very convenient to the US by boat.
