Hello these are some of the finds I found from a cellar hole built in the 1700s the big aqua coffin flask I was wondering if I could get a date range on please. Also the piece of pottery if there is anyway to give a date range on that I would appreciate it. Most of this stuffed cleaned up really nice I’m going to head back and dig around some more. For more backstory on the property I’ll post if anyone wants. Also found a nice ring as well.

Nice finds! The flask is 1870's an I've always been told that particular style is Lyndeboro. Certainly they were used by various Boston liquor dealers, so certainly plausible. That's some nice stuff to find on the surface!

Thanks I was so surprised some of it wasn’t right on the service but under an inch of dirt and leaves untouched the house has been abandoned since 1906 so

Great finds and I agree with the dates provided. I’d be so excited to get back there and dig more. I’m in CT and people have been lucky to find similar spots down here - I haven’t yet but maybe one day.

yes please keep posting

Hello these are some of the finds I found from a cellar hole built in the 1700s the big aqua coffin flask I was wondering if I could get a date range on please. Also the piece of pottery if there is anyway to give a date range on that I would appreciate it. Most of this stuffed cleaned up really nice I’m going to head back and dig around some more. For more backstory on the property I’ll post if anyone wants. Also found a nice ring as well.
Very nice finds keep looking they're bound to be more happy Hunting

I love the aqua colored flask with the applied lip. Never seen that one before. Is the cabochon ring blank silver? Great items you found there. I wish I knew pottery better than I do. Thanks for showing us your finds. Always a thrill.

I’ll check with my pottery guy but looks like a grey paste stoneware with a glaze almost completely eroded away. I’m mot the expert but we’ll see.
