Hello, I have a 5" clear blue medicine bottle, it has a pontiled top no cork with raised lettering "Thos Starr Druggist New York" , just looking for information on it, hope you can help me out. please let me know what you dig up

This is a tough one.  Finding information on Mr. Starr is best accomplished through the local library which might have copies of NYC directories.  From the directories (similar to our phone books) it might be possible to trace his history.  Digger

Subject: Question about a very unusual bottle - not listed on your site
Date: 01-09-2004

Hi Digger, I have a strange question. I am a descendant of the Kolb family, who lived in Pennsylvania during the 1700's. They were Quakers mostly. I have recently come across a bottle that looks sort of like a milk bottle, only it is very tiny. Maybe a quarter pint size of milk would fit in it. It was found in a barn in Landcaster, Pennyslvania and has raised letter's that say "KOLB'S DAIRY PRODUCTS" on the front. I have only seen a photo of the bottle, so I can't tell you too much detail, but a pretty darn thorough search of the internet came up with nothing. Not even a dairy called Kolb's. Do you have any idea about the age of this bottle? Thank you, bj berry

BJ you would have no idea how many dairies there were in the US.  The Ohio Bottle book lists 6000 known milks bottles.  I would guess there are half as many  more to be discovered.  None however, had the Kolb name.  Your best clue for your bottle would be the Lancaster Historical Society.  when trying to find information on small local bottles like yours and the question above only local sources are likely to help.  Without a town or even a state to go on even if coincidently you find a listing for a Kolb, you have no way to tie to that particular bottle.  On the other hand if you find a Kolb dairy in the Lancaster area it might be a good bet. Digger

Hi Digger I have a bottle of Laxativa prepared by Knorr Medical Co. I would like to know the age of the bottle and what it might be worth. The bottle has never been opened and still has the original paper wrap which has been torn off at the top. the label is in very good condition has both German and English directions. The price stated on the bottle is 50 cents. The pills look a lot like sixletts but only in the chocolate flavor. This bottle stands about 3 1/2" with out the cork and is square on the bottom. The bottom measures about 1" across. The bottle has a slight greenish tint. I have been looking for information about the Knorr Medical Co. of Detroit Mich. but have not been able to find anything. If you could tell me anything it would be greatly appreciated. Please Thank you Sharri Proulx

As far as I can tell the Knorr Medical Company of Detroit was most well known for their Knorr's Genuine Hien Fong Essence of Green Drops under a different proprietor presumably - it was advertised as early as 1825.  The most common date found the the Knorr Company was around 1916.  Things get a bit confusing because while the name is Knorr the company making them was not the Knorr Company. Nor can I acutally find any reference to such a company in Detroit and the products bearing the Knorr name as not made by that company.  Your product is listed as Laxativa but...it is not being sold by the Knorr Medical Company in 1916 either.  Laxativa was sold in two sizes, 100 and 300 pills and was put up by the Ames Chemical Company of Binghamton, NY.

Dear Digger, I have a Hemingray White House Vinegar bottle, corked, onion pattern I would like to find out what it is worth. It is in excellent condition. Thank you Dee LaFave

I am not sure what you mean by the onion pattern, unless is it the bottle shown.  As a non-expert in Whitehouse bottles, (keep that in mind) I am going to suggest the bottle shown is worth about $20.  Digger

I found several of the above embossed label bottles in a dump on my apple farm in Santa Cruz California. Western Meat Company was in San Francisco from 1891 to 1932 when it became Swift and Company. From your description of BOTTLE AGE , they are from circa 1900. They were used to convey salad oil from your butcher, similar to milk bottles. QUESTION: I saw this bottle in a "Bottle Collecting Book" some time ago but I can't find it now. IS IT IN ONE OF YOUR BOOKS ? OR CAN YOU DIRECT ME ? thank you gp stone

Hello, I have a bottle here that I would like a bit of information on. Its a cobalt blue soda with an iron pontil and was made by Union Glass Works Philada. On the reverse it says J. Dowdall in a rectangle slugplate. I am not sure where this bottle is from. I picked it up at a Good Will store for an amazing $5.00 about 5 ears ago in Lancaster, PA. A few collectors say it is from there and a few say its from Pittsburgh. So you have any clue where it's from? Thanks, Tom

Subject: Jack 1909 Please assist. Attached are 2 pic's of a Jack Daniel's Whiskey crock. On the top it is etched "James E. Brown 11-23-1909" It has a paper label (pic2) which is in good shape. This bottle has never been opened. What can you tell me about it & what is it worth? Thank you in advance for your time, Judy Jarvis Based on who gave us the bottle, we were told it is an original which dated back to 1909. The label is the original. I'm sending better pic's. It is scratched/etched "James E. Brown 11-23-1909" on the top & bottom. The label appeals to be original too. Thanks again, Judy -

 

Subject: Re: Jack 1909 If it is really old as it might be it could be worth a good bit...$300-400 (just a guess) It might be a commemorative piece.... if so....might be $50-75.  If it was a company special issue in 1909...could be even more Label looks new but pix is not clear Base of the jug might suggest age,  Interesting item Digger

See more pic in last month.  Digger.

Hi Digger, Thanks in advance for any information you can shed on my question. I have a decanter, picture included, which I can't identify. It is amber in color, about 9 1/2" tall and is set metal. Total height about 11 1/2". With a twisted rope looking handle made of metal, and a seal with a lion and crown on the front also made of metal.

Enjoyed your website, and will definitely order a book or two. I'm doing some research on a bottle I have which was supposedly found in Germany in WWII -- do you have any information about Duraglas? My bottle contains a crudely made ship in bottle, and a returning US Vet from WWII said it was made at a concentration camp -- by a prisoner? I'm not sure. I'm trying to document the bottle history so I know when/where the ship in bottle was made. My bottle has a diamond entertwined with a zero and the numbers 7/2/5 near that symbol. Also has the number E1596 on the bottom of the bottle. On the side bottom, the name Duraglas is in script. My bottle looks like some kind of fruit juice -- prune juice? Not sure if it was used by the military in WWII? Thanks for any information. R. Michael Owens, Philadelphia, PA

Date: 06-09-2004

I found these two bottles lying side by side at a construction site. They are 7.5 inches high. Green glass. The mold seam goes over the top of the lip. The lip appears to be of the type that once had a bottle cap that had to be pried off with a bottle cap opener. Around the bottom of the neck are the phrases, (NOT TO BE REFILLED; NO DEPOSIT NO RETURN). Around the bottom of the bottles appears the word, (Anchorglass, and the number 10 on one bottle, and the number 20 on the other). There is also a 1/4 inch band of small dimples going around the bottom of the bottles. Anchorglass and the 2 numbers are embossed in this field of dimples. On the bottom of each bottle are embossed the following in this configuration - 165-38 165-38 5 H 55 5 H 55 10 20 The H is an anchor. Both bottles are undamaged, just dirty. Any information about these bottles would be appreciated.

I guess someone had a drink of beer after work and tossed their bottle aside. The embossing says it all...NO DEPOSIT. To my knowledge they have no value whatsoever.  Stick them up in your attic for someone in the future to find.  Digger.

I had found a bottle under 6" of dirt at a early 1800's homestead site. It 12" high clear glass seam runs up to the neck a seam runs around the neck above it is a round lip with a 1/2" wide lip with another lip on top of it. A seam on the neck is a little off from the seam that runs down the sides. Looks like it might have been a two piece. The bottle of the bottle has a diamond shape with an I in it. There are rings on the bottle going from outside to the middle of the bottle. The glass has bubbles in it. I have not seen another one like it. Is it a whiskey bottle or what. How old is it and what is it value. I don't have a picture of it.

I just sold a vintage 1925 oil spout with glass bottle and the auction clearly stated bottle may not belong to the original spout. to be exact, this is what the auction read regarding the bottle: GLASS BOTTLE MAY NOT BE ORIGINAL FOR SPOUT. BOTTOM MARKED WITH WHAT APPEARS TO BE AN UPSIDE DOWN ANCHOR WITHIN A TRIANGLE OR AN INVERTED "T" WITH AN UPSIDE DOWN "V" OVER IT. BELOW THE MARK IS THE NUMBER 150801. THE NUMBERS 1097 ALSO APPEAR. BOTTLE STATES DESIGN PAT.. OTHER MARKINGS APPEAR BUT I CANNOT MAKE THEM OUT TO BE DESCRIPTIVE ENOUGH.. The symbol seems to denote turner bros but they buyer is now telling me he wants a partial refund... Can you tell me if this bottle holds any monetary value or should I just give the guy his money back. My auctions state as is unless grossly misrepresented and I didn’t detail the entire thing. He is pleased with the spout which he says is worth only $5.00 (moore&kling, etc) I am concerned about refunding anything if the bottle has a value and he is not willing to return it to me. HELP ASAP Thank you, Elisebeth

Greetings Friend, I have a question about a bottle that I have and I would like to know if I should hang on to it. First, it's a Deep Olive Green bottle, it measures 11 3/4" tall (base to lip). The top of the lip measures exactly 1", the base is 2 7/8" wide. It appears to be a liquor bottle, based on the shape, it may be (free or mold blown) there are No Seems, with an applied double collar. There is an indentation inside of the lip, appears that it may have held some type of stopper. The bottom is ground down to a soft finish, No pontil to speak of, just a faint center ring. There are many glass bubbles throughout and the bottle is in overall Excellent condition. What is confusing me, and I searched for about a week on line and in my books (5+) a little lower than mid-way down on the bottle is etched: " BOTTLE MADE IN GERMANY" in English, capitol letters just as I have it written. The written in English part is throwing me off. Please help, thanks Mike

Dear Digger, First of all I must compliment you on your web site. It seems you have thought of everything! It is so informative. We are trying to authenticate an E.G. Booz's Whiskey Bottle. The information you provided to do so is incredible. Unfortunately we are still not sure and have decided to ask you. 1.. The bottle does not have a period following the word "Whiskey" on the roof 2.. As you can see from the pictures, it is amber in color 3.. The front roof does say "E.G. Booz's Old Cabin Whiskey. 4.. The left side does say "120 Walnut St. The t in St is high to the S and there are two periods under the "T" 5.. I do not see a period after the work whiskey on the left side 6.. The door latch is perfectly centered in the shape of a full lying down "S" 7.. On the roof, the "S" is a little to the left of the "C" in cabin 8.. The periods in E. G. are not even with the bases of the letters 9.. The top fork in the "K" in Whiskey does not appear to be wider, if it is it is not obviously so 10.. The base of the "G" in "E.G." is closed 11.. There is no flaw that looks like a small star in the shingles on the reverse roof. Because so many of the requirements to be an original are met, we are still unsure if it is. We bow to your expertise and look forward to hearing your opinion. Thank you in advance for your time. Best Regards, Judy Schmidt

Hi Digger, I live on the Pamlico River Near Bath, N.C. Today I was walking in my yard and saw a small piece of exposed glass. I started digging and found an old milk bottle, without any scratches or chips. It is 9 3/4 inches tall and round. There is a scalloped pattern coming from neck down. At top front,in a circle is "NC Approved". Under the lip it says "Milk For Health In A Bottle For Safety" Back says sealed BB 48.Bottom has Large C with circle in middle,Duraglas in cursive writing,8 then"symbol" then 81. The symbol looks almost like an eye. Bottom front says "registered" Main front says One Quart Liquid. "Carolina Dairy Products Inc. Quality Dairy Products" all in a Large circle.

Dear Digger, I wonder if this question has ever come up before.

There are probably a lot of Trekkers out there who would love to know what kind of bottle this is (yes, I'm one of them), and whether the label on it is the original whisky label, or a made up "futuristic" brand. I had suspicions it might be an "Old Rarity" bottle, but the sides seem to be kind of "lumpy" (like rough hewn rock) and the only "Old Rarity" bottles I've seen have smooth sides. Any ideas?

I would really appreciate it if you could give me an idea of what it is thanks.

Hi Digger, I have a 750 ml John Haig 12 year old Superior de luxe Scotch Whisky in a Ceramic Decanter (blue), that my husband brought back from overseas some 30 years ago. It is unopened and still in its original hard plastic container with the ends a blue colour, it has a gold cord handle. I would be interested to know how much it is worth before the drinkers in the family decide to open it. Many thanks Deborah Clancy

Hi Digger, I looked these up online and couldn't find any record of them on several sites. Do you have any idea what they're worth, how old, etc? I just found the newer Owl Company bottle in my yard. The older smaller one was given to me. I don't know about the cobalt bottle. There's no writing on it. This one says "Keasbey & Mattison Co. Chemists, Ambler PA These look old but I can't see any markings... I also have a "CEO C. Frye Portland, ME" bottle with mortar & pestle, and three "S. Oberdeener, Pharmacist, Santa Clara" bottles in three different sizes. There's also an amethyst colored bottle "Louis Juussiy & Co." that looks old but is in such good condition, it might not be old.

It looks black or dark brown until you hold it towards light and look into it, than you can see that is ROYAL PURPLE. It has an Egyptian decoration around the middle of Cleo and Marci Anthony, the Nile, boat, pyramids, et. This has seams and a large stopper which is white and cork lined.

Date: 18-09-2004

I've had this bottle for some years now in my collection. Normally I collect miniature whiskey bottles (1940's-earlier, full and sealed) but this one seemed pretty unique. It's approximately 7-8" tall. Shape is rounded rectangular. The only markings are on the bottom, "8 oz." The seam stops just below the lip and right at the base. There are no chips or cracks that I can see. There's some old dirty residue on the top and shoulders (don't know the proper term) but it's minimal. The bottle is still corked and is still full of original contents. A thick black liquid. The stuff is super-thick. Everyone I've talked to has said late 1800's/early 1900's. I don't know where it came from, I bought it from someone who couldn't tell me either. I would like to know the value and contents. I've considered using a hypodermic needle to draw some of the liquid out for testing. Will the contents affect the value? Also, should this turn out to be a medicine bottle and contain opiates, will I get in trouble for owning it or selling it? Thanks in advance. Mike Ganas.

Hi! I just picked up a bottle at a junk store and the man didn't know anything about it. -Me neither, but for some reason I had to have it. After researching bottles on the web it appears that it came from a 3 piece mold. I am trying to figure out the company it came from. It is clear glass, 11 3/4 inches tall, it has small bubbles here and there throughout. The lower part of the bottle has no seams, then there is a seam circling the bottle at the shoulder area, and seams on both sides from the shoulder to just below the top. The top has a lip (where the seam ends) then it is smooth to the top opening(about 1 and 1/4 inch). The bottom has the letters W.W. in cursive writing - approx 3/4 inch in height, and underneath that is ll -approx. 3/8 inch high. I would appreciate ANY information you may be able to give me.

I tried finding this on the internet with no luck. While doing so I came across your site, hope you can help. I recently found a pint jar, I assume a canning jar at a yard sale. On the side it says Medford French's Prepared Mustard. On the bottom it has the Anchor Hocking raised stamp plus the numbers 5781 on one side and 97 on other. Also it came with an canning jar lid with glass seal. On top of lid says Atlas, on inside lid says genuine Boyd's Cap for Mason Jar. Both are in very good condition. Could you please tell me the history of this jar and it's original lid. Also about what it's worth. Thanks Debra Snodgrass Says Prepared Says French's Says Mustard Says Medord The Anchor Hocking stamp numbers 5781 on one end and 97 on other Says Boyd Cap for Mason Jar

Thank you very much in advance for any assistance you may be able to give me, although this is almost outside the box for bottle questions. I don't know where else to turn though. Very puzzling piece. I assume it's related to a bottle. Lightweight inexpensive metal well with birds flying above makes me think it might have been made in the 30's during the popularity of the Disney Snow White era referenced to the wishing well. Slides onto a wine sized cork, but of course that doesn't work because the bucket on the loose chain gets pushed up. Thank you for your reply, Susannah

SEPT. 20, 2004

Digger, I have a cobalt blue bottle with pontil bottom. The bottle is thick and rather heavy. It is very similar to the old wine bottles of England. The bottle is a mallet style bottle and has an applied seal. The applied glass seal is close to the portion of the bottle where the neck of the bottle begins. The glass seal says jn Greenhow on the first line of the seal and then says wilms. Burg on the second line of the seal and on the third line of the seal is the date 1770. I have researched and discovered the seal will state the name of the recipient of the wine bottle. I then, looked up old settlers of Williamsburg va. And found that indeed the john Greenhow family was a well known name among the settlers of Williamsburg. I do not know if reproductions of this type bottle and seal were ever produced. I got the bottle from my grandmothers home when she died and have no other information on the bottle. Please help. Do you know who I could take the bottle to in my area for additional help in dating the bottle. Thanking you in advance, debby dodd

I found it when an excavation was done at a sawmill and then later a brewery site. There is a cork still stuck inside, and if I read the date codes right it is from 1876.

We have a question about a clear glass bottle/decanter we purchased at a second hand store. We don't have a picture yet but we will try to describe it. It has an indented bottom with 16 raised ridges (looks like an orange juicer), around the inner rim (on bottom) it reads, " FEDERAL LAW FORBIDS THE SALE OR REUSE OF THIS BOTTLE D 156 7 55." It stands about 10 3/4 in. high, 13 1/2 with the stopper. It's shape reminds you of a genie bottle. There are 4 raised tear drop shapes around the bottle with about 1 in. spaces between them. The top of the neck is square with rounded sides and corners that are slightly curved upwards. The stopper stands 4 1/8 in. high incl. cork, triangular in shape all sides relatively flat including the top which is approx. 1 in. wide.

Subject: question regarding January 2001 ASK DIGGER Questions

Date: 21-09-2004

Would you be able to provide me with this Betty Medford's email address. I realize that she asked you the following question over 3 years ago. I would like very much to purchase that J.A. MORDIC milk bottle she found. Here is her question to you and your answer follows. Please help me! J.A. Mordic is very important to me because I recently learned that he fathered me in 1940. I am 63 now and would absolutely love to have that milk bottle. I knew he was a dairy farmer. "While cleaning out an old smoke house on my husband's parent's farm, we discovered several boxes of old milk bottles. Most are round quart bottles but there are also a couple of pint bottles. Some have the names of the dairy embossed on them. There are two Brinkley dairys "Whitson Dairy" and "J.A.MORDIC". There was also two from "Jersey Farm Dairy W.V. HOPPER & SON MEMPHIS, and one with "FLORIDA STORE BOTTLE" on one side, it has 3 cents embossed around the top, and the shape of the state with FLORIDA embossed on the other side of the bottle. It also has a large 3 cents embossed on the bottom and "Duraglas" along with the numbers 17, 1, and 4 around a small oval figure. Most of the bottles have Registered and Sealed 52 around the bottom edge except the pint bottle. It has Registered Sealed 1-11-14. The bottom of it has "ARK. DAIRY SUPPLY CO LITTLE ROCK ARK." and the letter "S" and the number "42". I would appreciate any information you can give me about these bottles. Sincerely, Betty Medford Betty, there are so many milk bottles around that it would be impossible to even list them all. Every state had hundreds even thousands. I'd estimate the round embossed bottles to have a value of $5-15. Yours being from the South might bring more, but I do not know the market. Digger"

Hi Digger; My name is Jim Schmidt, I live in South Jersey & have been involved in Glass now for more then 35 years. I've always been fond of bottles, but quite frankly was always up to my eyeballs & ears in so many other areas of Glass from Flint to Fenton that I almost don't believe it. So in reality I just could not venture into (Or have room for) another extension & form of Glass to get involved in. So I have this Forest Green Clevenger Disk shaped bottle and on one side it says "Trinity United Methodist Church - 190th Anniversary 1782 - 1972" and on the other side it says "Trinity Methodist Church 1842 - 1886." The illustration shows two different churches along with two different time frames. Well, being somewhat of sound mind. (I Think) All kinds of questions start popping up in my head. So I started looking on the Web & came away with zilch. Then went to a bottle show, got some strange looks, was pointed in a lot of directions, but came up as empty as the weapons inspectors in Iraq. Well, now it's kinda gnawing at me to find out two basic things. 1) What the story was about these Churches & where they were located?? 2) More in-depth information & history about the Clevenger Brothers, their operation, and their products, and bottles. Probably the easiest solution was to contact a local Methodist church & see what they had to say about this, but now some 10 to 12 weeks into this little research project has produced an unquenchable thirst for just plain more information and I was hoping you could point me to someone here in South Jersey that could assist me with my endeavors. I would have though there would have been a Clevenger's Glass Collectors group of some sort, but if there is I've been unable to locate them. Any help would be greatly appreciated & Thanks, Jim Schmidt

Side 1. flag attach and blowing around a pole, reads FOR OUR COUNTRY, don't know if its any help but there are 20 stars on the blowing flag, Side 2. is an eagle holding a shield and a think a wheat (?) design under the shield. you should receive my letter in about 4 days to put together with this email. thanks, and I hope to hear from you. carrie

Also have a number of Crownford China Co. plates,dessert plates and cups and saucers...calico blue but after reading some of the things on the net ... am worried about reproductions...the china was left to me by my fiancé and we never really discussed it except that he was proud of them...they have been sitting wrapped very lovingly in a box for years. Any help would be appreciated thank you Kellie

From a Reader: Thanks Kim.

Hi Digger - The SCWS on this bottle stands for Scottish Cooperative Wholesale Society, which had plants in Shieldhall, near Glasgow. They produced household goods and furntiure as well. Probably dates to early 20th century, and the bottles were made in aqua and dark green in varying sizes. Have seen them for sale from $5 to $10. Hope this helps - Kim

I recently found a Mrs. Stewart's Bluing bottle and am wondering what you can tell me about it. Age, worth, or anything else. It is approx 5 3/4 inches tall, 2 3/4 inches wide, the glass is blue in color and it has the words "Mrs. Stewart's Bluing Minneapolis" in raised lettering on the front in a circular pattern with a circle around it. On the bottom of the bottle are the letters "G CO MILW WIS" in a circle. There was no other label on it when it was found and is in pretty good condition. Any information you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you. Kathy Hagfors

Digger, Have seen your site lots lately.. My husband and I just moved to the upper northeast corner of Iowa, and live on a bluff of the Mississippi River. We have become very fasinated with bottle collecting.. just for the fun of it.. There are 2 bottles that I would love for you to be able to answer me on.. As to what era.. I have a devilbiss it states 16 on it , the bottle is small, brown with flat bottom, and curves up to the piece that states devilbiss on it, and it is either a perfume bottle, or a throat inhaler. the stem comes straight out to the side, and has a nozzle on the other end, with a larger nozzle at the opposite end. Then I too have found a bottle with the A.S. Hinds Co. on it with what looks like a crest in the middle as a logo.. but didn't know if this was medicine, perfume.. Mine does not state the honey cream... Thanks a lot Digger...!! You are great at what you do, and look forward to your answers... Andie from the bluffs of the Mississippi...... From the Mailbox of Andrea L. Silverson. HAVE A GREAT DAY! And God Bless. On the road to retirement? Check out MSN Life Events for advice on how to get there!

I have just acquired the following Coca-Cola bottle: Coca-Cola in script at the base of the bottle and the base of the neck on one side and on the other side Coca-Cola is in script at the base of the neck and Memphis, Tenn. in block letters at the base of the bottle. It is straight sided. The color is Dark Amber. It has a straight arrow pointing upward between the top script and bottom script/letters on each side. The bottle has Root on the bottom and is very heavy for a bottle. The condition is not excellent, it has scraps on it. Some of the letters look like they might have had white paint on them as well as the arrow. Was the white usually on this bottle? What can you tell me about it? What might it be worth? I have attached a few pictures from my camera phone. They aren't the best, but I don't have a better camera at this time. Thank you Tammie

Subject: broken glass

Date: 28-09-2004

Dear Digger, I'm looking for some sources for broken antique bottle glass that has pedigree. the idea is to get quantities of sorted broken bottles wherein the type bottles the glass came from are identified. I'm not very familiar with the privy digging craft but I'm making an assumption that diggers occasionally make finds where a large number of the same kind of bottle turn up in a single cache... I'd be looking to obtain the ones that turn up broken in a find of that sort or get hold of anything where there is a medium to large pile of the same glass from a known source. I'm not being very particular, I want stuff that's at least 75-80 years old, I'd love to get some interesting colors... I'm especially interested in the remnants of spirits bottles but will happily take any kind. I'd like any advice you can offer on how to make the contacts to get a hold of this stuff and any info you might be able to offer as to whether there is already a market for it and how much I should be expecting to pay if I can find what I'm looking for. Thank you in advance for your help. Angus --

It has arrows pointing to a center line on the bottle. On the bottom of the bottom it has Made in USA and numbers 3514 58. Above this on the bottom is the number 12 and it looks like MC with a large T in the middle of the MC and then E. The top of the bottle is shaped like a pop bottle.
