Subject: Consumer Brewing Co. bottle embossed elk? Date: 11/01/2005 9:49:39 AM

Dear Digger, I've got this bottle that is aqua in color, has consumer brewing co. Norfolk, va embossed on the front, but it also has an embossed elk or deer or something. It has a blob top, which unfortunately, has a chip. My mother gave me this and a number of other bottles, two of which are huge aqua glass, that can only be described as jug-like. I'm not a collector, just curious. Thanks Cliff, Milford, Delware

Consumer Brewing was in business in Norfolk from 1896-1918. These pre-prohibition beers in such a large size (larger than a quart) should have a value of $30-40 each Digger.

Subject: Threaded Cap Nujol Bottle with Bubbled Glass bottom. Date: 11/01/2005 10:53:35 AM

I have just unearthed a Nujol bottle which looks strikingly similar to the one shown on this webpage. It looks to have a threaded cap unlike the one I see here, and the bottom had a glass bubble. I am guessing it is form the beginning of the 20th century since the house was built about that time. Mark Wicks

 

When the first World War began in 1914, importations of Russian Mineral Oil were suspended sending prices sky-rocketing. Mineral oil was used to treat constipation and was too expensive for most people. The Standard Oil began about 1915 to produce Nujol which they billed as an American Mineral Oil. They claimed it to be tasteless and offered a free pint bottle as a sample.

Subject: Uncle Sam Decanter Date: 11/01/2005 12:58:08 PM

I have a small decanter (approx 7" tall) that is Uncle Sam straddling a whiskey barrel. On the front of the barrel it reads 'What we Want'. It is sitting on an oval shaped plate which is made to resemble bricks. I believe it is ceramic and the entire decanter and plate is brown with tan / beige shading. His top hat lifts off and is the cork for the bottle. My sons great grandmother gave it to me. She lived in the Chicago area. I have had the bottle at least 28 years, however I am sure that it is older than that. Any ideas? Thanks for your time. Mary Dixon

Subject: Bottle for school project Date: 11/01/2005 8:54:40 PM

Dear Digger, I am doing a project for school and I found a partial bottle. It is a rectangular, clear bottle. The base of the bottle is generally smooth and curved in but not pontil marked. However there is a semi circle and there are about 10 lines going up and down on the bottom possibly covering a pontil mark. There is embossing on each side of the bottle that says "...AM

ILY EXTRACTS". The bottle is broken above the "A" on both sides so I don't know what else it said. The dimensions are 4" high, 3/4" deep, 1 1/2" wide. Thank you so much for any help you can give us about the age or history of our bottle.

Hi I bought a 1964 bottle of Red Chianti wine in a gun or rifle shaped and it is unopened It is 12 ozs full of wine and is about 16 inches in height. The label is pretty clean and I have it listed on ebay but thought I better check to make sure it is a real bottle and maybe its worth because when I did a search on this wine I could not find anything about the decanter it was in.

Subject: Question.... Date: Thu, 03 Nov 2005 03:08:53 +0000 My friend just inherited a bottle (unopened) of AM

S (American Medicinal Spirits) Special Old Reserve Bourbon from 1916. The bottle and packaging are unique, and since (as your site indicates) this company was the only allowed to make alcohol during prohibition, we believe it might be of value. Any ideas as to how we might find out? The bottle itself has an unbroken seal indicating that it was bottled in Spring of 1916. The bottle is brown, with diagonal lines in the glass except where the label is affixed. The label says: SPECIAL OLD RESERVE Fine old bourbon whiskey made in Kentucky before prohibition, stored in the finest oak barrels for over 15 years and bottled in bond under Government supervision especially for the stockholders of the National Distillers Products Corporation.

Digger, I hope you don't get tired of questions. I hope you can at least point me in the right direction. I am trying to price an item for my grandma. It is a clear glass jug with two handles. It has a grape & leaf print(also clear) all the way around. It is a half gallon and it says WINE on the bottom. I found a smaller decanter with the same print at http://pages.tias.com/8722/PictPage/1922511466.html Granpa thinks it was Morgan David Wine, but we're not sure. Thanks J.B.

The wreck is unidentified and badly damaged by trawl nets, but the ship seems to date from the first quarter of the 1800s. The dateable elements of the rest of the artifact assemblage suggest a sinking between 1840 and 1860. This was the only example of its kind recovered, and I don't know if it represents a piece of cargo or a crewman's possession or ship's stores. No trace of contents or a stopper were recovered. There was no trace of a label and no embossing. I would very much appreciate any input you could provide on what the bottle may have been used for, manufacturer, dates of use, etc., as my own research has drawn a complete blank.

Digger, I was just going through some things when I was a kid I dug out of an old dump. It appears to have a chest up portrait of Napoleon and masted ships and fighting sailors on it. It has the cork in it and has a seamed bottom, it is amber and a flask shape. I found a few other bottles from the late 1800 to early 1900 in the same spot. One was the common spider web with spider bottle whiskey (Still has it's label from Coon Hollow Kentucky 1903). What do you think the value is or is the only value in the memories of my carefree days. Thanks, Wendy

I have a stoneware decanter with a cork. On the bottle is Rhein Preusse with a circle above it with Rhein around an inside circle. In the small circle is an X/+. On the other side of the bottle is N2. Can you tell me anything about it. Where it came from, the age and approximate value. I was the net and came across your site with a similar question but no answer to her question. Our decanter belonged to my husbands grandparents. It was in their garage when they passed away. I would any info on it. Thank you for your time!

Looks like an 1880-1900 era gin bottle. these were widely used for a number of products mostly gin and mineral water and were imported from Europe. Yours appears to be German. The form was widely used around the world, examples have been found in Africa, Australia, as well as here in this country. I have seen them in miniature as well. Digger. Value is around $30-40 but I have seen them sell for much less. Digger See www.bottlebooks.com/questions/June%202004/june_2004_questions.htm for a picture.

Hi We found this bottle many years ago. We are not sure if it is clay or ceramic. We were wondering if you might be able to give us some information on this bottle. Perhaps you might know the year it was made? the material used to make it?, And what it was used for? It seems to be handmade by the specks of sand that are in the glaze. It's an attractive color also. any information you might be able to give us would be greatly appreciated.

I was at an auction this summer and in a box that had several other things I wanted there was a bottle. The only embossing it has is on the bottom and says "made in France" It is just a hair under 11 inches tall. The mouth has 4 openings that lead to 4 seperate glass chambers in 1 bottle. The 4 openings had a resin looking piece (looks something like a LARGE cat or dog tooth that has a cork screwed onto it that seals into the bottle. The bottle is a hair under 2 inches wide at the top an opens up at the bottom to about 5 inches wide. I cannot find any mold seams. To me it almost looks like the 4 chambers inside were formed first then the outside bottle blown or whatever around them. It is clear glass with no labels at all other that the "made in France" on the bottom. I can find no damage or stains on the bottle. I had soaked it for several days in mild dish soap to remove the dust and grime from the outside and inside. I think the bottle might have been used for 4 kinds of wine or possibly cooking oil. I would like to know what you think it was used for, age, rarity, value and any history you may know. thank you for your time and consideration lily.lady

Subject: small borden bottle Date: 11/06/2005 10:00:42 AM

can you identify what this bottle was used for and approximate age? Clear glass; 4 1/4 inch tall with wide mouth; inscribed Borden at the top (on each side) with 4 fl oz written below one of the Borden. At base says not to be refilled. On side it has a 1 2 3 marking with a vertical line down and horizontal lines denoting the 1 2 3 marks. With the 1 at the top and the 3 at the bottom; with half horizontal line in between the numbers. On bottom 9 and a 69 with what appears to be a zero with a 1 or I in the middle of it. this zero is in-between the 9 & 69. also below that is a 3. found it on the bottom of lake that is down 4-5 feet due to storm (Rita) damage to the dam; so I'm trying to clean out all the glass, debris I'm finding. Rather interesting what keeps floating to the shore. Any comments would be appreciated. Betty Lake Livingston, TX

Hello Digger, My kids & I found a bottle in our age old "dump" at the back of our property. It is brown tinted about 10" high and shaped like a mickey bottle. The front has a picture of what might have been the company's logo of a man dressed in period clothing at a wine distillary with a castle (?) in the background and bunches of grapes around the outside. It has "TRADE MARK REGISTERED" written under it. On the back are the words "LONDON WINERY LIMITED" at the top and "LONDON CANADA" at the bottom (back). On the bottom of the bottle is a 7 and a diamond with the letter D in it. This is all done in raised glass. There are no chips in the bottle at all. I was wondering what year this bottle was made and perhaps if there is any value. Attached you will find some pictures. It still needs to be cleaned as there is a bit of mould that I couldn't get at.

Hi we have a kokomo pass bottle we found. I was just trying to get a little information on it. It is light lavender in color although you can hardly tell in the picture. The bottle is about 6 inches tall. The exact writing is branch saloon kokomo Colorado. It is in good condition except it does not have a lid. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you sherry Attachment N1: BOTTLE 3 PHOTO.jpeg Attachment N2: BOTTLE 5 PHOTO.jpeg

Hello Digger Can you tell me if their is someone making repo labels for these old bottles or not? Recently I found a Sanmetto brown square twist top med. bottle. I would like to find a repo label for it. I have found pictures on the net of this bottle and label, but can't figure out how to reproduce the label to the exact size to fit the bottle. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thank you Bill I have seen a few that people have done on an individual basis. However, I am not sure, I want to promote this sort of thing. For what purpose do you want the label? Digger

Dear Digger, I am an avid American Civil War reenactor, and have come across a few period gin bottles, of the 3 piece mold type, brown in color.

If so, can you refer me to some books, in print, with color photos of some of these labels? This way, I'll be able to make my own labels to stick onto the bottles for reenactments.

Across the front are the words, " Federal Law Forbids Sale Or Reuse Of This Bottle". On the bottom are the makers; James Catto & C: LtD Aberdeen 5 Scotland The second I have had for many years and have never been able to substantiate any information other than it was said to have been used on the railroads. It is clear glass and stands 10 in. tall. It is 9 in in circum with 8 flat surfaces forming a hexagonal shape. The bottom is concave and within that surface reads the same federal warning as on the above listed glass. There are no maker's marks or names on this bottle. It does have a tin sugar lid with spout and cover in tact. The glass is turning a pinkish tint I believe. I have attached several photos of both in hopes you can help add some history to them.

Hi, my name is Laura, My husband and I live in a small town in East Texas called Bronson. recently we had hurricane Rita came threw our area. The strong winds caused a lot of trees to snap and some just blew over roots and all. One day my husband was traveling one of the dirt roads in our area and he noticed that a large pine tree probably 100 years old had been blown over by the storm, and in the roots and on the ground was a mixture of different antique bottles. I will try to list and describe them the best I can. I hope you can help me gain some knowledge of what we have. 1)WE HAVE TWO OF THESE, Duraglas brand, it reads on one side- THIS CONTAINS reverse side-MRS. STEWART'S BLUING. 2) duraglas brand. it reads CREOMULSION For COUGHS due to COLDS. 3)COCA-COLA BOTTLE, it reads- SOUTHWESTERN COCA-COLA BOTTLING COMPANY NEW MEXICO ARIZONA and on the bottom-S.W.C.C.Co 4)JERGENS LOTION glass bottle, has a black plastic screw on lid the reads-JERGENS LOTION and the bottom says the same, and has an anchor symbol with an H. 5)duraglas- this one is a very small green bottle it looks like it had a lid that screwed on it. 6)MONTICELLO, ILLINOIS DR. W.B.C.CALDWELL.DIR. The bottom has a P with a circle around it. 7)bottom reads 5FL.OZS. WILDROOT and the lid is a black screw on lid that reads WILDROOT also. 8)This one looks like an ink well it doesn't have anything on it except the bottom has-31/8 OZ AND THE ANCHOR SYMBOL WITH THE H IN IT. 9)BALL - This is a larger bottle then rest that I have described, it reads - FEDERAL LAW FORBIDS SALE reverse OR RE-USE OF THIS BOTTLE. It looks like it had a screw on lid. ONE PINT 10)JERGENS LOTION BOTTLE - this one has no symbol to show who made it. It looks to have had a screw on lid also. 11)BALL - looks like a catsup bottle 12)WILDROOT - 10 Oz TO HERE on back. Well this is all that we acquired from that spot, but there is probably more there.

Hello Mr. Odell, I have a crock that I presume to be very old. It is a somewhat hard to read but is the earth wear color sort of terra-cotta. It is stamped on the front of the jug with a circle emblem with a number 4 in the middle and at the bottom of the 4 is an anchor. the outer side of the circle is another circle and inside that circle it says. (I think it says) AELL INARIS-BRUNNE B-M-W . Then under that is stamped the words: GEORGKBEUZBERG AHRWEILER RHEINPREUS?EN. (I think) Then on the back of the crock jug is the number 36. The crock jug has a little curved holder at the top side. and it is still corked. It sounds empty except for maybe a small piece of the jug that may have broken off and is still corked inside it. If you have any information you could give me that would be great. I want to get it appraised as well. Thanks. JuliaOFCamelot.

I have just recently started collecting old bottles so I am completely clueless on them. I will do my best to describe them to you. I will be wondering what year or year span they will be in and how much they will be worth thanks for your help 1. clear glass, about 9 3/4-10 inches tall, looks similar to a ketchup bottle, not a screw top. On the bottom of the bottle ( to the right) it says 12 then next to it, it has a circle with arrow head like shapes facing different directions in it ( to the right of the sign) is 0 ( underneath the sign) is 15. mold seam over the top. 2. clear glass Pepsi bottle, 10 fl oz., just below the neck of the bottle is says DO NOT LITTER and on the other side of the neck it says NO DEPOSIT ( star) NO REFILLS, the bottle has a weird patterned texture, bottle cap top ( two "indents" ). On the bottom of the bottle it has a C 10 72 52 then some weird circle thing I can't quite make out.( the numbers are spread out in a circle around the bottom). Mold seam over the top 3. clear aqua tinted glass bottle. about 7 1/4 inches tall, relatively long neck for the size of the bottle, bottle cap top ( three "indents"). It has the same setup and symbol has bottle number 1 that I told you about at the bottom. this time the numbers are ( left, right, bottom) 9 ( that one symbol) 8,12. mold seam over the top. 4. aqua tinted glass bottle, about 9 1/2 inches tall, bottle cap top ( two "indents"), on the bottom of the bottle it says SB & CC 0 and underneath that 15. mold seam unsure about once it gets to the "indents" it kind of curves on one side but on both sides it fades off. 5. clear Clicquot Club Beverages glass bottle, bottle cap top ( two "indents"), strange patterned texture, about 8 inches tall, mold seam over the top, on the bottom of the bottle it says: C-72 Duraqlas 9 ( that weird symbol that is on 1 and 3) 48 2 6. Clear cork top glass bottle, might be a flask ( at least I think that's what the call it) on the front shoulder it reads B.C DISTILLERY Co.LTD. ,it's about 8 inches tall. on the bottom its faded but it looks like a circle with a line diagonally through it.mold seam over the top p.s. you don't have to find all of them if it's overwhelming or too time consuming. Just 1 or 2 would be exellent. Thank you sooooooooo much. and if you need anymore information to figure it out email me and I'll see if I can find it on the bottle From David

Hello Digger I'm writing from Adelaide Australia. I have an old glass bottle which I inherited. I'm guessing it could be 90 + years old. I think my father told me it was a pharmaceutical bottle. Pictures below. It doesn't seem to have any markings at all. The bottom is concave. There is a slight 'dent' in one side about the size of a tennis ball.as if it happened when it was being blown. No chips or anything. Dimensions: 66cms high. Diameter about 32 cms. As you can see in the photo, the lip is about 4 cms deep with an indented bit in the middle. Hard to find the words when you're unfamiliar with this area! Hope you can help me with some information about it and whether or not it is valuable. I have carted it around Australia with me for the past 40 years, although it has been in Adelaide for 30 plus years now. Many thanks. Hope to hear from you some time.

Your book on Dangerous Drug Bottles indicates the substance within Shiloh's Consumption Cure was Heroin. It appears Shiloh's was marketing the product before the introduction of Heroin.

Subject: Misprint on a bottle... Date: 11/13/2005 2:52:16 PM

Digger, I've been holding onto a bottle for a while (probably since the early 90's) that I always thought would be worth some sort of money. It is a Pepsi 12oz bottle, special edition of Richard Petty. This is the "Most Popular Driver" bottle, but it is a misprint. In the pictures attached, you'll see that the label is misprinted entirely. I guess they print directly on the bottle and it must have turned during the printing process, there is only blue, red and white on the bottle and it looks as though there was a turn during the red printing. So on the bottle, Richard Petty's face (blue and white) doesn't show up in the red circle with his name over it. I'm not sure how common it is for a misprint of this type, but its pretty cool nonetheless. I bought a sixer of these without noticing it and when I brought it home I saw this bottle in with a bunch of normal bottles. I kept the soda in the bottle and have just left it on my shelf for all this time. The bottle is in perfect condition and sealed just as it was when I bought it. Check out the pics and let me know what you think its worth... Thanks, Dave Attachment N1: Pepsi_web_back.jpg Attachment N2: Pepsi_web_front.jpg

Hello, I found you after an extensive search. I need info on these pitcher/flasks. I found them within several days from each other at two antique stores within 10 miles in the Historic area of Concord and Sudbury outside of Boston, Massachusetts. After I had described the flasks to a gentleman at "The Boston Design Center" he suggested they might not be unlike some flasks that reside in the windows of the Paul Revere House or the Old North Meeting house in Boston, (I can't quite recall). He also told me that some of them had been damaged and that they are looking for replacements. Hmmm... In any event, the seam on each side of both stop at the shoulder. There is some dripped glass inside the spout of the one with the applied handle. (You can barely see in one photo). There is a perfectly round area in the middle of the pinches as though done with an instrument, not just pinched. A little like crown glass windows? I don't know if the glass is amethyst or sun amethyst. One is a little lighter than the other. There are no marks anywhere on either one. They are 6.25" H x 4.75" W and 6.75 H x 4.75" W. Or 15.88 cm H x 12.07 cm W and 17.15 cm H x 12.07 cm W I was initially interested in information on these so I could collect more but now that I've been told that similar vases/ pitchers/flasks were damaged that sat in the windows of a historical building of the revolutionary period, I begin to wonder. I've been searching for matches for four years on ebay and in many shops and have never found anything that resembles them. Can you help with an identification?

It is a green bottle with a very old label on the front as follows: Dry Sack Sherry..shipped & bottled by Williams & Humbert Jerez & London.. The back label is all but gone (it has a few inches left and is in Spanish) The bottle measures approx. 11" high..and has an impressed mark underneath the bottle which reads: W & H Jerez The label around the neck is mostly still there with a portrait of a woman in a circle and the words WIlliams & Humbert on either side of the label..The top of the bottle retains a red label with 'Produce of Spain' still readable..The bottle has air bubbles still in the green glass and a cork inside of the bottle.. The second bottle is one of which I'm sure you get receive alot of questions ..I believe it is relatively common..I just would like to know if it is original or a copy. it is in aqua blue and has 'The Father of our Country' on one side and 'Gen. Taylor never surrenders' on the other. the side with Gen. Taylor also reads Dyottville Glass Works Philada. The very top of the bottle seems to have been cut off by hand as it is not level. The bottom has a sunken circle for a pontil mark. There are also bubbles in the glass. I thank you very much for any help you can offer.

jaok20@bottlebooks.com I have received from my grandmother years ago a tin decanter that holds two 10" bottles with corks in them. The bottom of the bottles have an upside-down horseshoe with a large 'A' in the middle. The bottles are clear with what appears to be paint 'drizzles' on the bottles. The base is made of tin. Antique-gold-ish. If that is a color. It does have a wooden music box fastened to it underneath ad when you lift the whole unit up it plays "How dry I am." I have enclosed a couple of photos of the unit to assist you. Any help would be great in identifying the unit. I could not find any manufacturer's marks on the tin unit. Perhaps it was home-made? -- GOD Bless - Robert Galbraith Attachment N1: IMG_1987.JPG Attachment N2: IMG_1985.JPG

Hi I've recently gotten into bottle collecting and came across your site several times now researching my bottles. Your site is really great. So I was hoping maybe you could help and tell me what these bottles are. I have a DR.KILMER'S SWAM

P ROOT BOTTLE. I think it's aqua color, 8 1/4 inches tall, the embossing on the sides: one side says dr. Kilmer's and the other side says swamp root but nothing on the front or back. On the base it says: 2 then below it is a p in a circle and below that 281. The top lip) is a screw top and has a red rusty) cap and of course the mold goes all the way up. I know that it was a cure but I would like to find the age, rarity and value. My other bottle is 10 1/2 in. tall, clear (?maybe aqua), screw top with a very small hole for the opening and the seams go all the way up, I figure its a newer bottle but it is really nice looking so I brought it home and cleaned it up. There are embossed flowers all over it, along with "THE F.W. FITCH CO., on the other side was a space where the label probably went. I hope you can see it in the picture. On the base is a 7 then the I in a oval and diamond followed by a 9 then under that it says Fitch's and below that it has a 7_ . I hope this describes the bottle because I would really like to know any & everything about it. Both bottles are in pretty good shape with very few stains.

Hello, My daughter is doing a school report on prohibition and I remembered a bottle my mom had that my niece now has. My Mom said the bottle was sold as a promotional item after prohibition. She got it in a town call Ft. Bidwell in California. It is shaped like an old mishappen boot with a face on it, a pinkish tint (not glass but pottery) and about five inches tall. It held hard liquor of some kind and appears to have had a cork in the top. Since I don't have the bottle I can not remember if there were any markings on it, ever since I can remember my mom called it a "boot leg" doll. I have searched the internet and spoken to a few antique collectors but they have no idea. I hope you can help? Thank you. Mary Cramer PAISLEYSCRAM

Hello. My daughter is doing a research project on an 'cobalt blue medicine bottle' she found at an archeological dig in Tyler State Park in Newtown, PA. I was wondering if you could help us find some information about it. The bottle is 3-4 inches tall and about 1 1/4 inches wide at the base with a cork top. It has a seam running from the base to the top of the shoulder. The base is embossed with the numbers 234 on it. There is a slight chip on the base about a 1/4 inch long. We believe it was made in the late 1800's to early 1900's and held medicine. We would like to know if you can narrow down the manufacture date, what types of medicine it might have held, who manufactured it, how rare it is, value, etc.?

On the front of the bottle it says "HOOD"S"on one line, then "SARSA" on another, then "PARILLA". The back has "APOTHECARIES" . On the bottom is the number 36. These are not labels but imprinted in the glass itself.. The bottle is either light green or blue depending on the light. In the light also the bottle takes on rainbow colors, like an abalone shell, but lightly. Fairly heavy glass, looks like it was once closed with a cork, thick lip on bottle opening.

Dear Jaok20, I am Dennis. I went on a dig with my class. I found the base of a bottle. It is made of glass and it is clear. I noticed that there are some air bubbles on the side. It feels very smooth and the bottom of it is oval shaped. I measured the height of one of the sides and it turned out to be 2 ½ inches tall (the sides are uneven). The circumference is about 8 ½ inches. On the bottom the words T.C.W. & Co are engraved. The glass is pretty thick. I can see some stretch marks on it, but the mold seam isn’t visible because there is only half of the side of the bottle left. The edges are very sharp and some of them are chipped. There are some stains on the side. I am also attaching a picture of it to my email. I would like to know the history of the company, the price, the age, what it was used for and any other information you can tell me.

I am trying to find some information on a ceramic, amber colored bottle. It is about 5 inch tall and it is a monkey sitting on a chamber pot in the "thinkers" position. There are no markings on the bottom. The mouth of the bottle must of had a cork in it cause it is smooth. Any information would greatly be appreciated. Thank you, Jo Trimble

Dear Digger, I am hoping you can help me with a bottle I received from my Grandmother. It is a 4" long X 2" high clear glass pig shaped bottle with a cork in the pig's rear area.(which looks like it may have held liquor to drink out of?) It has seam lines around the pig and under the bottom of the pig with no seam on the lip. The bottom reads "C F KNAPP PHILAD A_ . I would like to know the age, history and value if any of this pig bottle. Thanks so much for your help! T. Guy

Subject: Antique cobalt blue medicine bottle Hello. My daughter is doing a research project on an 'cobalt blue medicine bottle' she found at an archeological dig in Tyler State Park in Newtown, PA. I was wondering if you could help us find some information about it. The bottle is 3-4 inches tall and about 1 1/4 inches wide at the base with a cork top. It has a seam running from the base to the top of the shoulder. The base is embossed with the numbers 234 on it. There is a slight chip on the base about a 1/4 inch long. We believe it was made in the late 1800's to early 1900's and held medicine. We would like to know if you can narrow down the manufacture date, what types of medicine it might have held, who manufactured it, how rare it is, value, etc.? Any information you can supply would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and assistance. Gary S Grossman

It stands 8 1/4 inchest tall on four legs. It is almost 6 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches thick. It appears to be ceramic. It is intricately marked and on both sides of the cork is two handles with a black chain running between the handles. On the back is a cluster of grapes, an ear of corn, and a large green leaf. There is one small label below the large label that reads Imported by Southern Liquor, Inc., Louisville, Kentucky. Can you tell me anything about it at all.

Digger, I was recently digging in my home town area and found an embossed bottle with a baby lying down, feet at the bottom of the bottle and the head towards the top. If you lean the bottle to the right the baby is on it's belly and at the bottom of the belly it says SUNNY BABE. The Back of the bottle has lines up the middle like a measuring glass. To the right of the lines it says OUNCES and to the left side of the lines has numbers from 1 thru 8. 1 at the bottom and 8 at the top. The bottom pontil has a k in the keystone and the number 4 in the outer line of the pontil. The bottle is clear no chips, cracks, or heavy staining. The bottle has some light scratches and a cork top with the mold lines all the way to the top. I've been digging for centuries and this is the first time I ever seen this bottle. My questions are - I was wondering how rare this bottle is? the time frame of when this bottle was made? And what was this bottle used for? If the value is available I'll get that too!

My guess is that the original height was between 8 and 9 inches. It is a round bottle with a smooth, uneven base at 2 inches in diameter with an air bubble visible. The bottle is clear with several air bubbles, is embossed with a detailed picture of two Native Americans, one standing and one crouched down by a stream in a forest setting. The mold seam continues past the shoulder of the bottle until where the neck is broken. The words "TRADE MARK" are written above their heads and "GRANITE STATE SPRING WATER CO." is written below. This whole part is outlined by a shape that looks something like the outline of New Hampshire and beneath this outline is written "ATKINSON DEPOT N. H. There is no other writing on the bottle.

I was wondering if you can answer some of my questions about this piece of glass. Here are some of my questions. I was wondering how this was used and when this was used. Have you ever heard of this company before. Do you happen to have an opinion on what the rest says. Do you happen to know when it was manufactured and used. Do you know what type of glass it is. Do you know when it was manufactured. Has anybody found anything like it before. Do you happen to have a whole bottle with you? I would like to know as many details as possible about this artifact. . Thank You Siddharth Ambatipudi

Hi, I've been browsing your site and wanted to ask you about a bottle I found. It is 4 1/2" high and round; the neck is 1 1/2". It is clear and the seams comes to the very top of the neck. There is in the front a large embossed crown (I think). This design looks almost like a heart, but the bottom clearly shows that it would be worn on one's head. There are four very tiny numbers near the top of this crown--two on each side of it. I can barely make them out, but they appear to be (left to right): 1877, 1886, 882, and 1834. Above each number is a star or a sun. These numbers and stars appear within two circular designs--one on each side of the crown. Directly under the crown, centered, is a small rectangular protrusion. On the back of the bottle, just below the neck and opposite the crown is embossed the number 1818 and appears within a slightly indented rectangular design (it's stylized with curved sides on the left and right of the rectangle). On the bottom of the bottle I see a small circle near the edge with the number 33, and in the cent er of the bottom going opposite the 33 is the number 1. I would love to know what this bottle was used for and it's approximate date of manufacture as well as its worth. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you, Mary Maggi "The first casualty of war may be the truth, but the first truth of war has always been the casualties." "For evil men to succeed the good have only to do nothing."

I forgot two other points. Just above the crown of my bottle it apppears that it says 1/18 PT. I can't see the entire 18, however, because cutting into that and into the crown below is a chip--3/4" wide and i/2" long.

To answer the question: Melcher sis Dutch and the distillery is from Schiedam. Have you that bottle for sale? Please reply Peter Maltha I surfed on your web-site looking for "J.J. Melchers". There are in Klikor several bottles of Melchers Schnapps, as the one reported in your page http://www.bottlebooks.com/questions/August2000/august_2000_questions_ask_d igger.htm But are these Melchers bottles from Danemark? Germany? Holland? So many people came to Ghana with spirits ... May you give me an answer about the origin of e Melchers bottles??? Or may you give me the e-mail address of Mr. Joe Preast? Mr Massiasta is organizing the bottle collection of Blakhud Museum, it's a village institution and not so much rich (you can visit their website at http://utenti.tripod.it/blakhudrc ). I dare to suggest you to send him a book of yours... you could easily get a bottle for it. Shipping a bottle from Africa might be azardous... but several students and researchers from USA come to visit the Blakhud Research Center. In the case you decide to send your book, you should not indicate anything of the content on the envelope, otherwise thr book would be stolen... BLAKHUD RESEARCH CENTRE P. O. Box 1 Klikor Ghana Well, thank you Luciano Luciano, I am betting with Melcher being a German surname and Schnapps being a German invention, my guess is Germany.

Hello I have a question hope you can help me. I have a Dark Green Whiskey bottle looks like quart size, with the embossed name on top side "White Horse Whiskey" On bottom is a 5. The bottle is a three piece with the sides going to the top and bottom as the third piece. Inside the top looks like a stopper of some kind was for it. Can you identify and share with me the age and who sold this Whiskey? Thank You _czechchaz_

I found a bottle of Rosewoods Dandruff Cure and found your address while searching. I'm a construction worker in Denver, CO. and from time to time I find stuff but never really think much of them. This one however caught my attention because of how deep it was and the other foundations we had found so deep. If you could give me ideas of how to find its age or how it got here I would appreciate it. And if you happen to collect or buy these items I would reach you in the future. Thank you for your time.
