Hi guys and girls. New member here from down under in Australia. Couldn't find a member intro area so hope its ok to post here?

I've been a small time bottle collector all my life but really only ever amassing about 50 bottles over the past 40 years or so . I still have my first bottle I ever found down here when I was about 10 yrs, a cobalt Caster Oil bottle, nothing special really I guess.

In the past 6 months or so I have started getting interested in very early bottles and have acquired 6 onions ( one from a shipwreck in Guyana, 2 other river found onions from an old Dutch port in Guyana, one from the UK , one from the US and one found in a river in and old Dutch East Indies river trading port ,plus 4x ocean found dutch long neck mallets from an old Dutch East Indies sea port in Indonesia , another long neck ocean find from Florida and another long neck from mid states US and an old late 1880's ( I'm guessing ? ) ocean found Medoc bottle with a Medoc seal from the same East Indies port.

Just thought I'd throw up a quick intro about me, what I'm into ( bottle collecting wise ) and a bit about what I have collected so far.

If I can work out how to post pics up here ( is there a " how to " somewhere ? ) , I'll throw up some pics of these bottles in the appropriate section.

Thats about it for now from me,

G'day from down under in Australia,

Van.

Welcome to the forums Van. I'm always happy to see a collector from Australia come aboard. I specialize in WAW-WAW sauce bottles which are occasionally found there as well as other places. If you now or ever have any available I am in the market.
