Date: 01-04-2005

Hi there, Not sure where to start but my dad found this old empty Seagram's Canadian Whisky bottle. All I can see from the label is "Seagram's Canadian Whisky". At the bottom of the bottle, it says "160P". The cap is a cork. Any idea how old it is, or where I can find more info? Thanks.

 

Looks to be early 20th century.  It might well have been a prohibition era whiskey - the sort smuggled into the United States in the 1920s.  In its present condition the value would be only a few dollars.  Digger

These nursers were designed to be easily washed out.  There is interest in this country as well as in England and they are collectible.  I'd guess this one was in the $20-30 range.  Digger

Howdy I have a straight sided, center slug plate script coke bottle . It stands 7 3/4 inches tall , has Property of the coca-cola bottling co. in the center of the bottle in a circle. It also has min. con. 6 1/2 fl. ozs. across the base of the bottom. Next to that is a small number which is 4061A and then has the word ROOT and then has the number 28. On the bottom the bottle says LAMESA TEXAS . The bottle is a very light green like the regular coke bottles use to be. Got any ideas of its age and value as I have searched the internet for hours and hours!!!!!!!!!!!!THANKS GEORGE

The very first "hobbleskirt coke bottles were made at the Root Glassworks in Indiana in 1915.  If yours is indeed embossed Coca Cola then it was made between 1905-1916 like other aqua straight sided bottles were .I'd guess at least $100.  Digger

San Diego Ca appears to be carved from a branch of a tree, and then a bottle inserted in side of it, and has a wood cork.

Subject: Antique Bottle - Baby with Sceptor in a Shell

Date: 01-04-2005

Hello, I would like to know the age, rarity, value, and history of this bottle. I did find a picture once in a collectors book that had a bottle in it which looked the same. The book said it sold at auction in the 90's for $250. 00. Of course, I am a novice and need your help. It is 5 inches long, 2 1/4 inches wide. It appears to be blown glass. There is no seem on the mouth of the bottle but there is some kind of crazing there - not cracks you can't feel them. The are none of these on the base of the bottle. There is a line between the shell and the baby, but it also does not appear to be a seam, but part of the design. The glass is clear. I have attached two pictures one with the scanner door down and the other with the scanner door up. Thank You for your help, Sandy

Hope you can solve this one! I have an old green blob top bottle with no markings except on the bottom written in Chinese. The bottle has a glass ball enclosed but not restricted to the neck, which is basically non existent. The bottle has bubbles in the glass and 2 clear seams and 2 seams not so clear. I found this in the California Delta near the town of Locke. Any information you may have would be most appreciated.

Dear Digger: I have the same bottle as described in this inquiry from June of 2002 but cannot find your response. "Hello: I have quite a mystery. After searching many hours and many sites, I still cannot come up with any information regarding (2) bottle/jar/jugs that I have. I don't know which term describes them best. They are brown glazed stoneware, fat bellies, short narrow necks, wide mouth openings, the writing on both is "Federal law Forbids Sale or re-use of this bottle" and each has a size description "Quart" and "Pint. " On the bottom of the pint bottle "Wing Fung Hong China" with some Chinese writing and on the bottom of the quart bottle "Wing Lee Wai China" also with some Chinese writing. I am hoping that you can shed some light on this mystery. Maybe I've just got junk here, but a history would sure be nice to know. Thank you for your time. Julie" I think the "Quart" is actually "Quary" and is preceded by a chinese symbol. The bottom of the bottle reads Wing Fung Hong China with more chinese symbols. Do you have any information on this bottle? Very truly yours, Sheryl Hutchens

Hi Digger, Our archaeologist found an embossed Davis/Vegetable/Pain Killer bottle on a property in South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Any idea how old it would be ? Thanks Hula Mary

The Perry Davis Pain killer was introduced to the market in the 1840s.  Widespread advertising in newspapers around the country soon made it a national best seller.  Small possible sample bottles are also quite common.  Below is a recreation of part of an 1869 advertisement for the product. Digger

HI just throwing out a question regarding value of bottles? I am looking into price or value into this bottle that my Mother-in-law has. E. Remy Martin and Company Cognac Grande Champagne Bottle is very old Age unknown Produce of France 40% alcohol, 26, 4 FL OZ Wish I had a picture to send you but I am working on it. I know that it is worth some money but I do not know how to get it appraised. My mother-in-law brought the bottle into a liquor store and a guy offered her 1000. 00 for it right away and she called me and asked me if she should sell it. I told her no. I felt it was worth more but I am not aware of the process to access it's worth. I know for sure it is over 40 years old because she has had it for that long but otherwise I am unaware of it's age. If I can get a digital picture I will send it your way. Any input from you would be appreciated

Hello Mr. Digger, This ceramic decanter is shaped like a "Wild Turkey". It looks as if it were specifically made for the Liggett & Myers PGA Tournament Players USA Professional Match Play Championship. Liggett & Myers Inc. Country Club of North Carolina, Aug. 21-27, 1972. The bottom of the bottle reads "Circa 1972 Austin Nichols Ceramic Creation Liquor Bottle 185 Wild Turkey 101 Proof 8 years old. I have looked for several hours on the internet trying to find a bottle exactly like this one. I have been unsuccessful. I am hoping, with your knowledge of bottles you can tell me something about it. I even went to PGA Championship Sites on the web, but came up with nothing. You sure are one busy man, thanks for taking the time to read this e-mail. lucy

Subject: Vincent, Hathaway & CO

Date: 03-04-2005

Hello Digger, I just stumbled upon your website and very much appreciate that you provide such a resource! I've taken an interest in old bottles recently, as I was given quite a few of them by a family member. I'd like to ask you about allot of them, but I'll try to keep my list short! First, I read the note from the person to you concerning the green "Vincent, Hathaway & CO" bottle and I was quite excited. I have one of those but it's a little different. Mine is clear, it states the "Vincent, Hathaway & CO" on one side (in curved like writing) with "Boston" beneath that in horizontal writing. On the other side of the bottle is a naked woman with long hair wrapped around most of her body (except for one breast). Beneath the woman it says "trade mark" and beneath that in bigger letters it says "Registered". Is this bottle run of the mill, or is it something I should be extra careful with(it's in very good shape, with only one place where a tiny bubble in the glass created a blemish)? I also have two cobalt blue, square ink wells, and one nice light green tinged, round ink well with "Carter" on the bottom. The last two that I'll bother you with right now both have "blob tops", one is embossed with "BIRKENHAUER&BAUMANN Old Fashioned (with a fancy line beneath) NEWARK, N. J. REGISTERED THIS BOTTLE NOT TO BE SOLD". The second says "FEIGENSPAN" and beneath that "trade mark" beneath that there appears to be what looks like a coat of arms with a hand holding a large glass of beer (the liquid in the glass has a foamy head and the glass has what looks like a prize ribbon on it). Beneath all it states "NEWARK, N. J. THIS BOTTLE NOT TO BE SOLD". I have lots of others, like an Edison "Special battery Oil" bottle, "Mrs. Dinsmore's Balsam", a "sample bottle Dr. Kilmer's SWAMP ROOT KIDNEY CURE Binghamton, NY", "J. A. Melvin's rheumatic & dyspepsia cure, a brown bottle that says "HOPPES No 9", Geo H, Reed & Co Boston Domestic Dyes", "Pharmacist W. E. Bosserman Bethel, Maine", and even one that says "Security Remedy Co. Minneapolis, Minn" on the front and on both sides states "antiseptic healer 25cents". The neat thing about the last one is that it's never been opened and the cork is still completely intact as is the original contents (it's full to the top). It's a dark (hard to tell how dark, the bottle is brown) liquid that I suspect must be iodine. Anyway, I went on more than I should have but this is like a treasure hunt and I can see how people can get carried away with it! I've got allot more bottle's, my relative collected them and had several boxes (and buckets) full in her garage. Most of them are in perfect condition except for being very dirty inside (some of which I can't get out and don't dare to try doing myself except for a soapy rinsing). Whatever help that you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Just having your website available is a big help for someone like me who knows nothing about bottles! Thanks!

Not sure if this is considered antique, but it seems over 40 years old. I remember "Made in Taiwan" meant low quality. This doesn't seem so bad. Was found in my attic amongst many vintage items, so would guess this bottle is something made before the quality of Taiwanese goods went down hill.  Thank you for your time.

Date: 03-04-2005

Hi Digger! I have looked through most of your postings, and don't figure mine is any more special of receiving a reply than anyone else's, but here goes. I have an unopened bottle of Kahana Royale Macadamia Nut Liqueur bottled by Hawaiian Distillers, Honolulu. The bottle was sold in Wisconsin and has a small Tax Stamp shaped like the State of Wisconsin. The number on this Stamp is 000000592. My parent's owned a tavern from 1975 through 1996, and no-one can recall when Wisconsin started the tax stamp, and no-one recalls ever seeing that low of a number on it. I am sure we can determine the age of it by that stamp. Do you know when they started the stamp? The bottle bottom is concaved and starts with the number "2" on top, then below that is a series of symbols described as a square and then a "U" or horseshoe shape and then a number 3. below this is a number 4093, and below that says "Bottle Made In Canada". The UPC Label on the back is 81607 91279. Thank you in advanced for your input if you get a chance to reply. smoj

Hello I have an old medicine bottle that I found in the wall of an old farmhouse that my husband and I bought back in 1983 when we were first married. We were doing some remodeling and knocked out some old plaster and lathe walls and it fell out. It is an embossed bottle and it says; Allen's Lung Balsam Cincinnati J N Harris & Co I'm not interested in selling it but would like to know if it really has any value and any history I can find on it. It has been an interesting item that I have carried around with me for more than 20 years and it's been a great conversation piece. I'd so love it if you could give me any information at all on the bottle and it's history. Thank you for your time!!! Susan Decker

 

The above picture is of one we dug.  They appear in 1870 period privies.  The brand goes back to the late 1850s and was advertised through 1948.  Below is an ad from 1870 for the Balsam. Despite their age and attractiveness, the bottles do not seem to bring as much as I would think they might.  Value is $20-25.  Digger

Hi Digger, Please help me age and price this bottle. It is a dark amber (Beer?) bottle, the neck you can barely see through, but the body and base are nearly inpenatrable. It's about 10 inches tall, 3 1/2 inches around at the base. Just before the neck it say in a almost arch BLATZ and then under it has a straight MILWAUKEE. The side seem stops just before the lip. The base has no seem, but a sunk-in large circle covers it and inside it says (top) W F & S (center) 15 (bottom) MIL Inside at the base is what appears to be a raised air bubble shaped like a rainbow/arch. Is this some sort of pont. ? The neck is smooth and gradually gets smaller until blossoming into the lower lip and then shrinks slightly again until meeting with the rounded lip. No label, letters are embossed. Found while metal detecting an old homesite. All other things found at homesite are pre '35. Two small discoloring dings near base. Either scratch or makers defect near neck. No cracks or chips. Thanks for all your help. Kim F. Haughton(near Shreveport) La.

Hello Digger, I dont know if you often revise a revision on one of your Question pages . but . I would like to retract what I sent to you back in 2003. Back then . I only went by what was listed in Toulouse's book of makers marks on bottles, but since then I have been working with several bottle researchers (via email) and we have found numerous errors in Toulouses work. And recently one of our group discovered with pretty much certainty . who the FHGW mark actually belonged to so . if possible . I would like to request that you remove the below (red) portion of my text and replace it with the following (blue) text. At a minimum, delete my original posting (if you dont care to revise it), since I think it is important to not mislead folks to think their beer bottles were made by F. Hampson in England . since they were not. Thanks so much. Still curious . rol. [original] reader update 12/4/2003 . I was curious . and looked in Toulouse's Bottle Makers and Their Marks book (pg 202) . and found FHGW listed as being the mark of Frederick Hampson Glass Works (you guessed that part right, of course) . a company in England that made "handmade beers, amber, and finished for corks" . 1880-1900 . that have been found in western ghost towns in the US. This seems to fit that bottle Mr. Faszholz found . but I could not find an email listing for him . to send this info hence my wondering if you ever go back to add more info to past answers? Not that he would check back . but others could benefit from this new info. Call me . Curious Carol . in California :o) 4/4/05 I love your website You told him you did not know who made the bottle based on that marking. [replace the old text with this:] Well recently David Whitten, a bottle mark reseacher, discovered through city directories in St. Louis, that there was a Frederick Heitz Glass Works in that city, who (for lack of any other known makers of these initials) was probably the bottle maker who used the F. H. G. W. mark on export beer and also wax sealer fruit jars from 1883-1896. Some wax sealers and early soda bottles are marked with F. H. , and these may be attributed to Heitz also, but at this time it is not 100% certain. Please refer to David's site for more bottle/jar marks:

Dear Sir I am not a bottle collector but a bicycle collector. I recently found a bottle and would love to learn more about its history. The bottle is rectangular in shape 8" high and 4" wide, amber in color. The mold seem does not go over the lip, lip is fatter than the rest of the glass, like it was the end of hand blown glass. One side is plane and the other has a rooster ridding a high wheel bike with the word TRADE above and MARK below. On the bottom is HAMBURG SOCIEDAD VINICOLA. There are no chips and the bottle seems undamaged. Any information will be appreciated. Steve Carter

I know you get hundreds of emails and the question I want to ask most you have probably heard a million times. I have done some research on my own but have gotten unsatisfactory results. I have a ruby colored bottle that has twelve sides. It is approximately three and a half inches tall. The side of the bottle says A. Lancaster's Indian vegetable jaundice bitters Col. Sam Johnson proprietor. On the bottom of the bottle it say Wheaton. I have seen similar bottles on the net in amber colors and green also some blue bottles. I have not found any of the bottles like this one. I have read many articles about the reproduction of the jaundice bitters bottles however my question is this. Is it possible that there were some original bottles that were not reproductions and if so how much are they worth. I would be happy to send you a photo should you need one. Please email me whenever you have the time. I am not in a hurry, nor do I frequent your web site enough to find any answer you may place there.  think you so much for your time and patience with my question. I hope to hear from you soon.

Subject: Bottle Appraisal

Date: 05-04-2005

I am attaching 6 photos of a bottle that has been in my family's posession for about 40+ years. My father got it from a junkyard dealer friend of his. I believe he said they found it in an old house they were demolishing. The bottle color is very, very dark amber, 14" tall and 2 7/8" across at the base. The mouth of the bottle is not in one of your descriptions, but I can tell that it's slightly rough where it connects to the bottle. I can not see any side mold seams, but there are horizontal waves and ridges visable when looking through it at a bright light/sun. The base of the bottle has a fairly smooth finish-it indents in an even round shape (about the size of a golf ball or pingpong ball) with a little smooth 'nipple' in the very center. The bottle weighs 1 15/16 pds (on my postage meter scale). There are no scratches or chips in the bottle itself. The label is faded and parts are missing. The blues, greens and shades of brown are still visable. The three labels are as follows: The top label has the name W. C. Muschenheim (the Hotel Astor guy?) on it. The center label has the name "GEBRUDER DREXEL" on the first line w/ "Hoflieranten Sr Majestat des Kaisers & Konigs" on the second line and the words "FRANKFURT A/M" on the third line. In my internet research I found an antique C. Bechstein Grand Piano for sale with the same words on the piano's fallboard logo . "Hoflieranten Sr Majestat des Kaisers & Konigs" and the description that said . "this photo shows the fallboard logo which is the preferred "Kaiser & Konigs" version which relates to Bechstein's regal connections at the time of manufacture. " So this Gebruder Drexel guy/company must have had the same type of 'regal connection' or in that same era??? The bottom label has the words: "1862 MARCOBRUN*E" w/ Ausl** It also has a United States Inter. Revenue, Proprietary, 2 cent, series of 1898, stamp on the upper right hand corner of the lower label--I've included a photo of that too. I have spent hours on the internet trying to find info on 'Marcobrunce' or 'Gebruder Drexel', but could only find the info on W C Muschenheim with the Hotel Astor during the early 1900's. He died 10/26/1918. His home/castle in NY burnt down12/20/1903. This info came from the New York Times archives. I'm interested in the historical information as well as the appraisal info. Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.

A friend of mine and I dug up a clear glass "hip flask" shaped bottle with badly damaged paper labels from the old city dump in Hays, Kansas. He has the bottle and I haven't seen him in a few years so, I don't have a photo. I ran across your web site, I've always been curious if it possibly had any value. The labels were not decorative at all -- more medicinal than like a liquor bottle. In faded red ink - Large block letters: PENDERGAST GIN Smaller black lettering FULL PROOF 3/5 pint Kansas City, Mo. I've done an internet search and can't find any information on "Pendergast Gin". Could this have anything to do with "Boss Pendergast" and his sons who ran Kansas City from the 1890's thru the 1940's? The back label was smaller and square and slightly askew. It said something about "Kansas City's Largest & Oldest Mail Order Liquour Store". It didn't match the front label and looked like it had been possibly added to the bottle. [by the shipper?] The bottle and labels were damaged and there was fire blackening on part of one side. Sorry for such a sketchy description.

Hi Digger I'm not sure this is within your area but you are about my last ditch effort. I have an antique IV bottle (see attached) and I can't seem to find another one like it. I purchased it from a late doctor's estate sale. He was about 90 when he passed 4 yrs ago and apparently collected himself so his age may not be of help. It has old english etched numbers and is open at the top (wide end). The glass is slightly wavy when held to the light. It holds 1000cc's. There are no chips or damage of any kind. I have the bottle packed away and cannot remember seeing seams. I don't really remember seeing any but may very well be wrong. As pictured, there are other parts that go with it. The large piece is a base and is heavily weighted. I believe there is a piece missing that should go into the base and then the lower left ring is atached to the missign part. The top ring with chains suspends from somewhere and is where the bottle hangs. It seems strange but I guess they would just pour the fluid/blood right into the top and it was left open to the air (and gnats . ugh!). Any idea of the age, value and rarity? Any help is greatly appreciated. Maxine Tecumseh, MI Attachments: IV Bottle 1. JPG IV Bottle 2. JPG

Date: 09-04-2005

Hi, My name is Kimberly. I don't know much about older soda bottles, so I am hoping you can help me. I will try to give as much information as I can. We have a soda bottle dated "patented" 1914. The product was Delicious Delaware Punch, this is embossed on the front of the bottle. Embossed on the back of the bottle is a punch bowl w/cups, along with the ingredients of the bottle. It also has Delaware Punch Bottling, Shreveport, Louisiana. It is 6 1/2 fl. ozs. , not too long of a neck, the lip is a little rounded, and it looks like the seam goes all the way up to the lip, but it seems to be a little less as you get to the lip of the bottle. The base, well I don't know the difference in smooth, embossing, etc. At the bottom of the base there is something on it, but I can't quite make all of it out. It does have some numbers and a word, something glass or glas. I am not sure if I explained it correctly, I may even be wrong about the embossing of the label. As I said, I don't know much about older soda bottle. However, I do hope you can assist me and I do thank you for your time and consideration. Thank you, Kimberly

Date: 09-04-2005

Good evening . I have pepsi bottle from Florida that I recently purchased that has a very unusual condition . There's the usual film found on dug bottles , but 90% of the surface of this bottle looks similiar to what most people would refer to as orange peel . It looks like the condition is on the inside walls of the bottle as well . It starts about 1 1/2 inches from the top lip and extends down to the base of the bottle . I am totaly baffled . The seller said that the bottle had a rough texture , but I've never seen this condition before . What could have caused this damage or am I going to be shocked to find out it was produced this way ? Please respond . Thanks . Donald Walker

Hi Digger. My name is Garry and I live in Australia. Sorry I haven't got any pics for you but I hope I can describe the containers to you that are all stoneware containers 1/. I have a white/grey stoneware bottle ( ink bottle I think)it is approximately 14. 5 cms high 5. 5 cms across. ( 20 cms circumference) It has a lip on the top. On one side of the stoneware bottle it has " FIELD LONDON" stamped on it and on the opposite side it has Bourne & Son Patentees Denby ( I think) Potteries Near Derby. It was dug out of the ground about 12 months ago and has come up looking very good. I am wanting to know the approx. age and would you have a ball park figure you could give me on the price of it 2/. I also have several small pottery containers that I got out of a lake 30 years ago. An old homestead used to be by this lake and alot of the rubbish usedto be thrown into and around the lake. This is where I have found 40 % of my bottles Of all the books I have read and looked up on the internet I do not know what they would have been used for. They stand 7 cms tall and are 6. 5 cms across ( 45 cms circumfrance) They all have an oval stamp on them with ( what appears to be the following wording) George Okey ( on the top of the oval stamp) with Wilnegote or Wilnecote on the bottom of the oval stamp. Next to that stamp is another one in the shape of a triangle / pyramid with some sort of writing along the base and what appears to be another smaller triangle sitting on top of the large triangle. Maybe a symbolic crown ??. very hard to see even with a magnifying glass Colour : coming up from the base to 5cms it is a Biege colour then it becomes a Light tan colour. With a slight glazed look At the 6 cm height the top goes in a bit over 1cm then it has top on it about 1 cm high with a 3 cm opening. I assume there was a cap on it of Cork?? 3/. Next Stoneware container is 15. 5 cm tall At the 11 cm height it slopes in by 1cm with an angle, with a top of about 3 cm high . The opening is 3. 2 cms . Again a cork seal?? Markings are :oval stamp with Vickers England Colour is light/dark tan all over the bottle with a slight glaze look 4/. Another stone ware container 19 cms high in total. About 1 cm up from base there is line around the container. Just above this line on one side there is a rectangular stamp with what appears to be a 7 or maybe a 1 . Inside the rectangular stamp there is writing, what appears to be: ENCRE JAPONAISE N. ANTIONE & FII or FH ( hard to make out) Approx. 12 cms up from base there are three ridges. About 1 cm after the last ridge the container begins to slope inand the neck is about 4 cms long with a pouring lip. Opening at the top is about 2 cm wide. Colour is a dark tan all over with a full gloss finish I hope this is not too much to be taken on by you but a would appreciate what ever feed back you have . Would you have some good sites for me to go to to find out information Regards Garry

Digger further to our conversation about Vandorf ink I was not willing to say much until I won the ink from Ebay. I was afraid of a bidding war and got it cheap 10. 50 for the cobalt blue ink but 21 dollars shipping and when it arrives I am reporting the seller. I know it don't cost 21 dollars shipping but I wanted that ink. I need to know how to send you pictures so you can examine the ink and not reject it because I sent it as an attachment which I know better You don't open attachments. As well digger my name is Roy Lumley and I wanted to know if you wanted an email of the pages from the Canadian stoneware magazine that lists all but 4 of the inks from here to help you with questions from us Canadians.

Still waiting for that reply and I know your busy very busy now diggings on and all. I got a new privy to dig myself. Lots of fun and clay is hard digging. See what makes me think the cobaltís real is where did Japan get the idea to make the green one from.

So because you were right I chose a simple way of saying I'm sorry for not listing to you. I bought the other book volume 4. Now I would like to Know 1 question about your bottle book more inks. Here it is on page 14 you list the amber staffords ink but not the clear/aqua or cobalt blue if not listed in volume 4 what should I be paying for prime examples. I am looking for the cobalt blue as a replacement thanks to a cat that should be dead. Finally are there any other books on inks available that list inks not found in these. Thanks Roy

Date: 12-04-2005

I am hoping you can help. This bottle is made of stoneware and stands about 14 in. tall and has a raised fish on each side that seem to have some gold highlights. It has a reddish glaze followed by what appears to be a greenish glaze or coloring on the outside. The brown that is shown in the pics I am told is probably from dirt etc built up since the bottle appears to have been dug(inside dirty also) and someone tried to brush off the brown . I am told that the bottle looks as though it was folded together based on the sides where it appears a little bit flattened. The local bottle collector said that it looks like the neck may have been applied after the rest of the bottle was made. He felt it may be Mexican or Spanish. I acquired it from California so perhaps that is the case. No other history of the bottle etc is availabel. Hope you can help, I can find no source of information that refers to anything like this.

Hi Digger, I saw a question on your website about the collectible Wheaton Commemorative Campaign bottles. The one in question was a 1968 Republican Nixon/Agnew shaped like an elephant. Do you know where I could find out more about these or how many were issued? My father has one and I haven't seen it on any internet search and we're wondering if it rare. In 1972 the Republican campaign was to be held in San Diego, but was then cancelled (or rescheduled to another locale. ) The bottle is amethyst in the shape of an elephant with Nixon/Agnew silhouettes for the 1972 Republican Campaign. Thank you for your time, Jennifer Krull

I have in my possession a stoneware "whisky" jug. It is an A. Alexander's Dandie Dinmont Special Blended Scotch Whisky bottle, imported by Vintage Wines Inc. New York, NY, USA. It has a State of Ohio Department of Liquor Control stamp adhered to the side of the bottle with a control number of 16491505. There is no date on the stamp or the bottle it's self (aside from the est. date of 1882). It is roughly 10" tall with brown glaze on the neck, handle and cork stopper. It has a volume mark of 1 quart, but could be 1/2 quart as the glaze is smudged beyond legibility at that location. I am interested in finding it's approximate age and worth in US dollars. I can email a photograph of the bottle if you wish to see it. Sincerely, Harold E. Feldhouse III

Dear Digger: Does the lid look like a small mason jar lid or is it different? I want to keep an eye out because we're going to tear up that dump trying to find it.

With the right lid it would be worth $1000. Without the lid and in dug condition less.  The lid was iron and would be long gone. The chips are gonna hurt.... I'd be happy with $500 Digger

Subject: Dr Ingham's Nervine Pain Remedy

Date: 27-01-2004 Hi Digger, I am an amateur genealogist and have recently started looking up the family of my adopted American family (I came to the US as an AFS student). One of the best stories they had to tell was that of their father (though I think from research it was probably a grandfather, or even a great-grandfather) sitting in a barn on a farm in Vergennes Vermont and watching the bottling of their uncle's patent nerve tonic. As the story goes, once the Drug Administration swung into action the stuff was banned! I'd like to buy a bottle of Dr Ingham's Nervine Pain Remedy/Tonic (minus the contents), which I saw valued on a website recently at around $31. I'm prepared to pay up to $50, for a good bottle, to give to the family. None of us is very rich, and this is for sentimental value only. Can you help? I'd be grateful. Rose How can I contact her? My dad has 2 of these bottles, and would be willing to part with one. I also know someone that may have more information for the family. Thank you for your time. -Brad

We are not too interested in value but is it a collectible? Also, in the same spot years ago (before he was born) I myself found a clear, thick seamed 8" bottle that states "Dr. Morses Celebrated Syrup" and 2 Cobalt Blue Bromo Seltzer bottles that one is 3 inches and the other is 6 inches. How about these too? I appreciate your help. Jenn and Paul M. Sterling. CT

The only information I have concerning all of the old bottles we have found on his property is that the area we are in, (East Coast North Carolina) had a shipping port where all goods were brought in to the county from all over. This bottle is a John Dewar & Sons Ltd. White Label Blended Scotch Whiskey Bottle. It is approximately 4 inches tall and 3/4 wide. It has a paper label and a metal cap with a metal band sealing the top. The back says it was bottled in the United Kingdom. Any info would be great and or value. Another unique find is a small round slender bottle 5 1/2 to 6 inches tall. It has a paper stamp on the front. The stamp has a ship in the center and under the picture it says series of 1898. Under that is the word "proprietary". In each of the top corners it has 1/4 with one quarter cent written between the two 1/4 symbols. We have lots of other old apothecary bottles like swamp root kidney liver, chill tonic, Jaundice Bitters and more. I would love to learn more about where all these bottles came from and theere uses. Please let me know what you can. God Bless, Melody

Dear Digger, Great web site! Bottle dumping today with my mother on Martha's Vineyard, finally some beautiful weather! We came across a couple of bottles that we thought you might be able to identify for us. The first is 4" high, solid ivory white glass bottle, on one side of the bottle it says "Sanitol" and on the other is say, "FOR THE TEETH". There are no other markings on the bottle. It is in perfect condition! The second is green glass, 8" high with a wide mouth, maybe 1. 5". On the bottom the bottle reads Seville Packing Co. New York. There is some kind of logo on the front neck of the bottle and it is seen again on the bottom, It says trade mark, and looks like a coat of arms with some initials in it, maybe NO DO, it is a bit hard to make out but bottle is in great condition. We also found what we think is an old lantern base but are not sure. It is small with no markings other then decorations. The sterling silver "top" is still attached but if it was holding a wick that piece is missing. The sterling "lid" is stamped "sterling, ID 8196". It is about 3"high and round, thick heavy clear glass and is only about 2" in diameter. The decoration is very simple I would say crystal like cuts all the way around the glass. We think indeed it is cut glass. The last one is very strange, well I am sure you see some stranger stuff then this. It seems to be some sort of booze bottle. It is squareish with indents for gripping. It has raised decorations that look like squiggles, there is one sort of flower, but not very detailed. It seems to look like a modern day Seagram's gin bottle, but I am not sure it is. The clear glass is smooth where the label was. The identification stuff on the bottom is the following 19 D-126 18-53 there is then a raised Diamond and it says Made in the U. S. A I imagine that this isn't very old but it is peculiar looking. If you could get back to us and let us know what we have, that would be great! WE could get you some pictures if need be. Let us know! Thank you in advance! ALexandra and Jeanne Taylor

Hi Digger I 'm Jeff Peters - a groundwork foreman, working on a site in Ulverston and as I began to open up the site, the 360 degree machine began to dig up a few bottles/earthenware pots/bottles embossed The Dandy Lion Ulverston/Bovril/flagon/blue and green bottles, all of which are embossed with various names . ross's & co, hudson, r f case, liquozone, thompsons, wharton dalton, woodward nottingham etc etc. An old chap local to the area said there had been a waste tip on site here since 1750. Amongst other items I have dug up are embossed black beer bottles. One intrigues me - ind coope Romford with the top still in it. The top has a picture of what I suppose to be the brewery at the time of brewing. With over 40 years in civil engineering I have never dug up so many items. As I send you this mail, the site is now near completion for new housing development. Barry Hughes, a village 'pub' friend and keen local historian/antique p/h has said he will help with photos of the items, which in the majority are in undamaged condition. More to follow .

Subject: John Wayne Bottle + two other bottles

Date: 19-04-2005

Digger, I just found your site while looking for some information on several bottles I have. The first question is regarding a John Wayne Whiskey Bottle I have. If you go the link listed you will be able to view the bottle from the front to the back. My main questions are as follows. How rare are these bottles and if I were to sell it how much would be a reasonable price for this bottle. It is in good condition as you can see in the photo. The seal has been broken and there is no whiskey left inside. Except for that the bottle is in original condition

My next question has to do with two bottles I found while digging. A small story along with this goes like this. I live in a town called Mendota, Illinois. We are in north central Illinois and the town originated due to the rail road coming from Chicago. About 15 years ago the City was building a new fire station. While they were digging the area to pour the footings for the foundation they dug into what appeared to be a room which was covered in dirt. In among all this dirt were these bottles. I know there was a brewery in this town but I don't believe the company was close to where the bottles were found. The white bottle has ( B G & Co ) stamped on the side. The two tone bottle has a mark on it and I believe it reads ( 11 ) but I can't be sure because it is blurred. The link to view these bottles are as follows. My questions for these bottles are basically the same. What would be a reasonable price to ask for these. Also if you know what type of bottles these are if possible. Any help in this matter would be appreciated. Also if you could recommend a place where I could put these bottles up for sale. Thanks Dennis T. attachments

Subject: coca-cola bottle

Date: 20-04-2005

Hi Digger . About two years ago, I was with my father as he was buying a car from a lady on a farm in Hamilton, NY. In the barn, there were some old bottles. I bought three of them for $15. 00. One of them is a clear Coca-Cola bottle. It is in near-mint condition, with no discoloration, and only a few very faint scratches. Here is what I have found out about it so far: it is a straight-sided bottle, with a round bottom, and a dmade my machine (seams go over the lip, owens ring), made somewhere between 1915 to 1920. About a third of the way down from the top, where the bottle straightens out, the words "MINIMUM CONTENTS 6 1/2 FLUID OUNCES" is embossed, with an embossed ring that goes around the bottle underneath it. Around the bottom is another embossed ring. Below that, at the very bottom, are the words "COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO. " Just above the ring, appear the numbers "554" and "26". On the bottom, an "R" enclosed with an equilateral triangle appears, and in large letters "NORWICH N. Y. " I did some research on the triangle r, and found out that it was a mark used by the F. E. Reed Glass Co. in Rochester, NY, which is about 3 hrs away from Norwich by car. The only evidence I have found of any bottling activity in Norwich was on a list of names matched with occupations: a list compiled in 1916 shows a Harvey Leroy Beasley as being in the "Wholesale Bottling Business". This is where I have reached a dead end. Is there any difference in the value of straight-sided Coca-Cola bottles on the basis of where they are made? About how much would a bottle like this be worth? Ed Central, SC (originally from Syracuse, NY)

It's made by The Hayner Distilling CO. USA, in the early 1900s. It's a type of combination lock, made of brass . It's a cork at the very bottom and a white "clock face" for the combination knob. It's never been used, packed complete in the original box with instructions.

Hi. I think I may have a rare or least hard-to-find item--I can't find diddly about it on-line. It is a green-glass Jumbo jar by the Frank Tea and Spice Co. in the shape of an elephant. The elephant has excellent color and molding. I think it is also a bank because it has a coin slot cut in the lid and I don't think my family did this--the slot is very carefully cut. The size is 3 1/4" tall and it has a litho tim lid in fairly good shape--see the photo. It belongs now to my mom and she wants to sell it so I am trying to see what we are talking about. Thanks. You look like THE expert on glass! Dave Hoggatt, .

Hello I was wondering if you could help? My father has recently discovered that his ancestors were whiskey bonders in Southern Ireland in around 1830-1840. We are now on the search for any further information on Kinahan's Whiskey - we know that there is stuff out there (having seen 2 mirrors in bars which with no amount of persuasion could we purchase!!) but have been unable to locate anything concrete. The only thing that we have found is references to it in a few books. Do you have anything for us to go on? We also believe that the Kinahan's produced beer as well. Your help would be very much appreciated. In case you were wondering what happened to the family business - they drunk themselves bankrupt!! Many thanks Penny White

 The flasks are all reproductions from the 1970s.  They might be worth anywhere from $5-20 each.  The remaining bottles have little value over $1.00 except maybe the Mountain Dew bottle.  This is as nice a collection of repros I have seen.  Digger

It has a seam on the bottom of the base that is a little smaller than the shape of base. It has a seam around the bottom of the lip and one seam on each side which runs from the base to the top of bottle. It has "SAM THOMPSON PURE RYE" on one side and "FULL PINT" on the other. It has the # 4 on the bottom of the base; I think. Any information on this I would appreciate. As you can probably tell, I don't know too much about old bottles.

Can you please tell me anything about this poison bottle and what it is worth, I've had a couple of people interested in purchasing it? It has a Skull & Bones and DP Co on the front, the words POISON on each side and raised diamonds, there is a label which I can read, but just barely. Two of the diamonds have very small chips. It stands about 7 1/4" high.

Large coffin poisons such as this one command top prices from collectors, especially when the original label is present.  Value at least $500 probably much more.

Digger, The Old Taylor distillery decanter can easily be found on eBay and other auction sites. While some people want $20 or more, you should be able to get one for $5 to $10. The bourbon in the decanter, if still there is only four years old, regardless of how long it has been in the decanter; bourbon stops ageing when it is taken out of the barrel. This decanter was done sometime in the 70's. The number on the bottom identifies the distillery, each distillery has a unique number in that format.

Hello, I have in my possession two milk jugs . They are glass jugs painted a dark blue. They are 18 inches high, has a 23 inch girth and hold about 2 to 3 gallons. The mouth on it is about 8 inches across. Now comes the good part. It has the word milk etched on its girth with a star underneath and the date 1890 . All of this is raised etchings. On the other side about half way around is a cow standing on a plot of grass. All of this is also raised etching. On the bottom of the bottle is a star etched in clear. The bottle is completely glass and only the bottom of it is clear while the rest of it is painted a cobalt or dark blue. I got these from a elderly gent in philadelphias brewery town section of Philadelphia 18 years ago. He claimed his family had it from the milk man who used to deliver by wagon. The vicinity of Brewerytown is around 30th and Thompson street to Oxford street. I have tried and tried to research this and to no avail. A couple of so called renowned antique dealers were clueless. Have I gotten hold of a very expensive antique or worthless glass. I would appreciate a response and value please , if you want I can send you pix ot them for further clarification.

I recently purchased a clambroth milk glass bear pomade jar at a yard sale. I know this is what it is because I found one on the internet at rubylane antiques. What I do not have is any history on the bear or its maker. I don't even know what a pomade jar is. The bear is a frosted looking milk glass. It stands 4 1/2 inches tall. It is sitting on its haunches with its front legs drawn up. You can see the claws on the back feet. The head is removable. The jar has no blemishes, but does have a few chips around the lip where the head sits. On the bottom it says EUGENE -BIZE AND FRICKE CO. SUCCESSORS TO J HAUEL CO. Is this bear a rare find? I would like some info on the history of the maker and the bear. Maybe you know of an internet site or a book I could purchase to provide me with this info. Can you provide me with its value?

Subject: What book to order? Good Morning. I need your help. I came across your website to get some very important information on some old bottles we found in a farm house. We have many Bateman's Pectoral Drops Opium Bottles all of which are different, labels, manufactured (?) or handblow, or from a cast ?, some with pontils, different colorings, etc. Which of your books can give us some history on these bottles and what their value would be? We have been selling them on eBay and the more they sell the more we know they are of value. We have so many I decided to sit down and sort them out. My God, so many I need to know as much about them as possible. I have researched Bateman's Drops and now I am researching the differences in the types of bottles and most importantly I want to know what there value is worth. Please let me know if any of your books have information on these bottles. I would really appreciate your help. Karen Delaware

Yes. I have researched Bateman's Drops as much as possible for the history on the internet. The question is how are some on these bottles and do they have value? Could I possible email you some pictures to look at to tell me what you think? I would hate to purchase the book and not find any information inside on these particular books since we are not bottle collector's. We merely cam across the bottles for the purpose of placing beach sand inside and discovered there is history behind them. We have been selling them on ebay and have had much success. Knowing more about bottles which I researched yesterday makes it more intriguing. I appreciate your help. Please let me know if you are willing to look at them to help us. Thank you so much.

Subject: Re: What book to order? Well Karen, if they are mostly medicine bottles as you describe the Medicine Bottle Price Guide would be the best choice. Medicines are most common. the other high value bottles would be in the flask or bitters category. See my web site for information about these. Bateman's is a very early name in fact, the medicine originated in England. Please visit my web site at http://www.bottlebooks.com Digger

I have a sealed Jacquins bottle I cannot find out anything on it. It has four type of liquor inside. The seal says it was manufactured in 1972. On the bottom of the bottle it has "FRANCE" embossed. The labels are in pristine shape. It also has the four spouts for the bottle. Is there any value to this, or should I just drink the very well aged brandy?

Digger, I have a collection of figural whisky bottles which basically have themes from New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts. The stoppers (corks) are either missing or broken on some of them causing the tops to be loose. Is there a vendor I can purchase new corks from? What kind of adhesive would I use to attach new stoppers? Or should I send them to someone for repair? John

Digger, I have a friend who has many bottles that were dug in the Chicago area. I believe three of them are beer bottles and they possibly date between 1840 and 1870. I will send some pictures with this e-mail. I hope the pictures are sufficient. If you look at the picture title of each one it will tell basically what I know. The brown one does appear to a 3 piece mold and is actually green when held to a light. The two smaller beer bottles have blob tops. I am interested in the age etc. and value if any of these bottles. I would say they are in poor condition due to the size and number of chips in each one. Thank You for your time. Craig S. Cherry

All appear late 1880-1890.  Two Hutchinson sodas and a black glass ale (imported).  None of them are particularly valuable but all saleable at modest prices (except badly damaged)  Chicago had hundreds of different Hutchinson soda bottles.  Several others can be seen in this month in fact.  Digger

Hi. I found this bottle at a yard sale and have no idea what is was used for. It is 9 in. tall, and about 3 1/4 in. across. There is a seam on the top, but it does not match up with the seam going up the side so I assume it was applied. I can't tell what the bottom looks like because of the wicker bottom. I would appreciate any info you might have on this bottle. Thanks, Gina

I have about 25 small bottles, from vodka, gin, whisky, etc. They all have the orig. labels, seals, stickers that say state of Wisconsin. Many have the original contents. Some the contents have evaporated. They are from the 1930's and early 1940's. Most of them have labels taped over the cover saying "less then 1/2 pt. To have them appraised together would be quite an expense. I just want to know if they have value before I list them for appraisal. I haven't found any information ANYWHERE I've searched. Just please let me know if they're worth the great expense of having them appraised! Thank you for any help you can give me.

Subject: Thanks for your site -- and a question

Date: 30-04-2005

I was just given a beautiful bottle this week, brown, 5 inches tall, and with the label embossed on the glass. The cork is still intact. It's a "Dr. Peter Fahrney and Sons" product and I have had fun researching the history of this family and their company, a history with which I am sure you are familiar. Apparently the type of product in this bottle, Farni's Alpenkrauter Blutbeleber, was brought with the family when they immigrated to America and was one of the first "medicines" that they sold here. Since the bottle I have was made by the Chicago branch of the family, I am wondering what kind of date I can ascribe to it. And of course, though like any devoted collector I will never sell it, it would be fun to know its value. And would you happen to know if this company still exists in some form, just for curiosity's sake? Thanks, Cliff Davis, Richmond Va

Hello I have a Drumheller 6 1/2 oz bottle I found in a field in Aberta back in the late 1970's It says Drumheller Bottling Works , Sparkling Beverages and on the back there is Thirst's Best Bet, Every Bottle Sterilized, contains less than 1/10 of 1% Benzoate of soda. The soda bottle looks like it is designed after the Art Deco trend , ( think of a 50's juke box. ) I think the bottle is from the 50's or 60's. So it is not that old. I can send you some pictures Can you give me more info on it Thanks Jim Internal
