Thought I'd share a small part of my
20190423_142514(1).jpg

50+ yrs of digging/collecting.

Also...a wall I'm building...a few yrs in the making...& a few yrs left in the making, to finish.

The crock 1870-1880 beers (seen in wall images), were ALL found in Coquille, OR at one fairly small dumpsite...along w/LEA & PERRINS Worchester Sauce bottles...equal to the many stoneware beers. A couple of other odds & ends bottles were also found...I concluded this dump was likely a close-by local bar/eatery of sorts. Anyways...I cut the beers needed for my wall lengthwise (& many of the sauce bottles too), w/tile wet-saw.
There are numerous agates, geodes, petrified woodS, river rock from the Rogue, Coquille, Sixes, Pistol Rivers, many other places worldwide & many beautiful purchased oddities in this wall...a lotta work!

Hope you enjoy viewing,

Byron

Last 2 images are of a couple of other ~cool~ finds

1) a GARRATT S.F. CA., steam whistle from the 1870s
2) a 1-wing OWL DRUG with a gorgeous iridescence.

Great stuff, Byron! Thanks for sharing with us. That wall is cool as hell. I like the brick ribbon or banner behind the stoneware flowers. Really neat and inspirational.

Love everyone of your bottles. Why are you cutting bottles lengthwise? So they sit flush on the wall i suppose. In the first picture i like the glass insulator and the Angel in the middle. Is it a light? In the first picture,what is the Stone crock on the wooden holder. That is cool. Looks like it will tilt. Thanks for the pictures. ROBBYBOBBY64

Thanx for all the replies & compliments.

Yacori!. Yer in CONNETICUT!...& you'd love to find a place to find bottles like mine!! I live in the coastal Oregon woods...limited places to search! You my friend...I am so envious of...CONNETICUT!! You live in an area where dumps, outhouses, Glass factories, towns (now 'ghosted'), flourished!! RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH!!!You'll be rewarded w/so many places to go...Where do you start!! Remember honor trespassing laws, private property, & asking permission!

I'll split the royalties w/you Wiltshire on the puzzle idea...go for it!

believe me we are always looking. So many of the dumps have been dug for decades it seems. Obviously there are dumps and privies our there that haven’t been found or hit very hard but most of the ones we find aren’t very old and we just squeak into the 1800s.

the hunt is half the fun though.
