I was sitting there that day thinking about the days when these bottles were in use. Thinking about the horse and wagon that dumped the bottles there.ya know just day dreaming. Then a 747 flew right over us
(real low & loud) the air port is a stones throw away.Cars drove by a short distance away, that road was once dirt and it leads to the next town.
People don't realize how far we have come. A lot of bottle collectors don't really care about where the stuff came from or what life was like back then. They just want to cash in $$$$$$$$.

Good observation and so true.

I hope I never get to that point.

I love the glass too much for that to happen. Just finding an old piece of broken glass on the ground, feeling the texture and holding it up the light gets me going and takes me to another time and place. Sounds sorta stupid I guess, but it is what it is.


I wish rubbing a shard could really take me back. I would know where all the privy's were and never have to probe when I got back [8D]plus I would buy a few "full" bottles of the good stuff.[;)]

By the way thats badgers line "It is what it is" [:D] hes always say-in that

"Cordial" glasses were typically small in size.
Cordials were often drank as an aperitif.
Relative to your medicine it would refer to the smooth taste and gastric soothing traits
I cant remember the exact ingredients for that one but wouldn't be surprised if it had opiates or chloroform.
WTF??!! chloroform???

It knocks you out before you die [8D]

Nice digs and thread Rick. Sorry to have not have kept up on it. Always good to shed some blood for bottles. Happens to me even when I don't get any whole bottles!

RE: Back to the Stumbled upon Dump 9/22

Hey Rick, I used to collect wall mounted coffee grinders and had a couple that looked like your "cup" and I believe it is a hopper to one of those grinders. There is one listed on ebay as sold, # 200959826785. There you can see the similarities in design, though there were at least 2 or 3 designs that I recall. One was leaves on a vine, another with butterflies and snowflakes, from toc. Also, some hoppers had a band in the middle that simply connected the metal ends and really had no true function. Likely as not to keep from wasting metal left over from the sheet and simply connected to metal from the next sheet. Helps explain why they didn't seem as common as the hoppers without the banding. That's my guess, for what its worth....Jack PS- I miss dump digging! Never know WHAT might surface!

I just cleaned that weird can I dug. I was washing dishes so I figured I would clean it up. My wife bitched about all the dirt on the dishes but she got over it [:D]
it looks to me,this thing might have been a closed can, opened with an opener. if so it sure was a fancy can.

What do you think was in this thing?

Here is a pic from a book I have left over from collecting. It is rather hard to see the design but was tin and came in a silver tone as well as a gold or brass tone. The pics on the ebay item are much easier to see the detail......Jack

Fergot to mention, I have seen flower mills made of the same tin and designs, which would also explain the banding as most flower mills were. After looking again at your pic, I'm leaning towards flower mill, but would have an obvious hole in the side for a crank for a sifter now gone, I presume. Likely some household kitchen apparatus as this tin design was very popular with the women. Jack

For some reason, my original message failed to make it to the response of the quoted text. Additional info can be found on a completed ebay listing for a wall mounted coffee grinder, # 200959826785
