Got a new main display case. Think it looks alright, will probably rearrange some stuff. Everything in it is dug by yours truly except for one bottle.

20201123_141434.jpg

All of my Long Island blobs. Lots of my locals are unfortunately broken. Theres a P. L. Conlon aqua base I took out for the picture thats usually in there. Nobody's found one of those whole, so I figure the base alone is worth displaying. Definitely gotta fill out this shelf a bit more.

Plain strapsides in the back, some hutches and my lone squat and ten pin in the front. Also some common medicines and flavorings (the square bottle on the right is a little hard to find; Cooks Marjoram Cream). The semi blob to the left of the ten pin is the one I didn't dig. Its a rare unlisted Patchogue bottle

My large whiskeys plus my only quart blob (plus some sample paul jones'). Probably my favorite shelf.

The bottom section; theres a general food shelf above and some dinged NYC blobs + a bunch of crowns below.

Thanks for reading!

Nice display! That ten pin blob is interesting, never seen one of those before. Is it embossed?
Yep, it says "Lactone" on it in script. Lactone was kind of like a early 1900s instant drink mix. It'd be sold to resteraunts and soda shops who would serve it in their establishment and also sometimes bottle it privately. Haven't been able to find this bottle anywhere, but I'm guessing some local soda fountain was making these bottles. It's super out of place timewise. Huge shoutout to treasurekidd and bottle-bud who helped me identify it. The original thread I posted has a cool Lactone advertisements in it if you search the forum

Nice, did you dig some of those in a dump or a privy? I've dug those little Paul Jones miniture samples here in Detroit before. LEON.
