Ask Digger

Digger Odell Publications

Your place on the web for information about old bottles.

TEN THOUSAND QUESTIONS ABOUT OLD BOTTLES: Find out what bottle collectors are asking about their bottles.  Read Digger's answers.  Because of the huge volume  many questions remain unanswered.  Beginning July 2007 only selected questions will be posted and answered.  My appraisal service is for quick responses.  See the link for Email Appraisals at the left. 

Many duplicate questions have been included to show the commonness of  some bottles. This site is mainly about Antique or Old Bottles. I do not answer Avon bottle questions and tend to shy away from ceramic collector decanters as well.

GOT A QUESTION??   If you have a question, please check to see if someone else has already asked your question.   Go to the Ask Digger page for guidelines.    Use SEARCH THIS SITE to help find your answer.

GOT AN ANSWER? If you have information about any of the bottles readers are asking about please email me at and I will post your comments.
