Went to the Heinz History Museum today to check out their bottle collection. Seeing as Pittsburgh major industry before Steel was glass, its a pretty important area for bottle collecting. I've got a lot of these bottles in my collection, but only about 5% of them.

Bottles and such from the Steamship Arabia wreck. The river boat was manufactures in Brownsville, PA and was headed out from Pittsburgh when it sank on the Louisiana River.

Circa 1800 ink well made in Pittsburgh, apparently the only one known. I know I've never seen a pontiled inkwell like this before.

Yes, thanks for all those pictures. Love the great labels on some of those pieces. That little petal footed inkwell is killer.

Awesome! If I ever uncovered any of those bottles, I would declare that day miraculous, LOL. Anyway, what GREAT pieces of historic glass and stoneware - I must make a trip out there one day.
