Do you have this one? It is a 1940 Ann Page ketchup. Sold by A&P.

Could this be what I found recently? I haven't cleaned it, and I believe it is clear, just dirty with creek mud inside. The bottom markings are different, but it sure looks the same.

It was just an example of how collectors mainly did go after the more rare and or valuable bottles and threw back things they thought were of no use or value to be collected. You are right though, bottle digging is definitely about the fun of collecting not the earnings. I only would say that value of these bottles comes in handy when trying to downsize and or insurance of stuff in your collection.

Wow, yeah that's an unusual one for sure! Never thought I'd see a slick ketchup from the turn of the 20th century that I thought looked appealing, but that one sure does. I don't think I've ever seen one of that style of ketchup in any colour other than clear/amethyst before yours. I don't even remember seeing one in aqua before. That's quite something to find one coloured like yours.

Glad to see you agree. Diggers are often too quick to deride and discard certain bottles because they see tall 8-sided bottles and think they know all about them. I've attached an example. (note the dates of the first Heinz octagon).

Cool Beans! Bohdan,

My fav is the bulbous one, 4th from the left, with the vines going upward from the base's 4 corners. Thanks for the graphic.
