Question, can irradiated bottles be changed back to clear?? Someone had mentioned using heat, but I haven't found any other info on this subject. Some fool has "colored" a very rare local dairy bottle and I am hoping it can be reversed. Any info is much appreciated...awesome site you have BTW. Thanks a lot Mike

Subject: *****SPAM***** 2 Bottles with orginal contents

Date: 01/01/2007 5:17:48 PM

 Hi, I have 2 bottles in question... One is the old-time preparation for home use by Dr Fahrney and the other is Stay Polish for furniture and bars manufactured by Stay Wax Co. Both bottles are unopened and contain the original contents. I was wondering if this makes them more in value, and what that may be and how old or rare these bottles are. The Fahrney bottle has a broken off cork, which is still plugged, and a chip in the mouth of the bottle.( I know you have answered other questions about this bottle, but i have not found anything with information about the the contents still in it.) The Stay Polish is a clear bottle with a red screw cap. It has a label on the front and is embossed with numbers on the side 1 -15 marking the ounces, and on two sides there is a symbol resembling a spider with the letters R B. I don't know a whole lot about this stuff so any information will be super! Thanks! Jennifer [...]

 Regrettably our camera Lacks in clarity but I tried. My name Is Levi and my father found both of these bottles at the original Oklahoma State Fairgrounds. The taller clear one is 3 and 3/4 inches tall and has no markings and has a lip, so we assume it's a cork top bottle. the second one is dark brown (presumably with age and has the initials T O on the bottom of the bottle, it is 2 and 1/2 inches tall and has the following words embossed on the front: Trade Mark, vaseline, chesebrough New York. its a screw on top and the lid is missing. it has a small chip on the back and both are somewhat dirty (we're working on cleaning them). The seam on both bottles seems to end at the lip. both are round and not especially strange in shape. we are mainly just interested in the age and value thanks for your time and when you answer please if at all possible email me at this email so I will know you answered, cause I may forget to check the website often.

 Hi my name is John, I live in southern California and I have a couple of bottles which I have never been able to identify. I was born in the 70's and my mother had these bottles in our house for as long as I can remember. She is gone now and I never asked her where she found them. They are 11-1/4" tall to the rim and 13-1/4" tall with the white glass stopper, that has cork around it's base. The bottles appear to be black at first glance, but when held to the light the glass is a deep purple in color. There is an Egyptian scene around the entire mid-section of the bottle. The base of the bottle reads: FEDERAL LAW FORBIDS SALE OR RE-USE OF THIS BOTTLE. Also there are some numbers on the bottom. D-334 under that there is 118 62 and under that there is a 1 so it looks like this D-334 118 62 1 Here is a picture of the bottle. Thank you for your time. -

 Hi digger; Ive been trying to find some info on a canadian soda bottle produced by dominion glass for the canadian wrestler whipper Billy Watson, it is a clear 7 fl oz bottle, with painted labels and one of his favourite wrestling holds on the back, on the front it has a wrestler , and the drink of champions on it. The painted label and writing are in colours of red and yellow. I would like to know the value of it, I only found one reference to it on the net, someone has two, they had two different wrestling holds, but no value. thank you Anne

The bottle does have a seam down the sides and has no writing...It was dug in Sparta, TN...Any ideas on what would have been bottled in this and a round about value?...Thanks for your time...Patrick

It still has the original label and contents in it and stands 8 3/4 inches high. The label says the contents is "Pure Fruit Flavored Orange Syrup". The bottle looks to be amber but it could be stained from the many years of the syrup still being inside. Do you know if they produced the bottle in amber?

Hi Digger, My father has in his collection a bottle that was dug at old Fort Laramie in Wyoming. It is dark amber, six sided and is embossed "Lediards/ St. Louis" It is similar to one I've heard of that is embossed the same except it says new york instead of St. Louis. This bottle is smooth based, but looks to be very early. As I recall, it has an applied lip. Any info on this one concerning type, age, value, etc? It is in excellent dug condition with a little stain on the surface, but not detracting, and one small 1/8" nick on the lip ring. Is there someone that you know of in the St. Louis area that I could reach whom might know of this bottle. We are interested in trading it and we need to know approximate value before we do it. The size is about 10 - 11" tall. Thanks, Ron

Subject: Broad Ripple Whiskey I was doing a little research on my old whiskey bottle and came acorss an e-mail to you from Nicki Fowler in December 2004. It appears that I have the exact same decorative decanter of Special Reserve. The decanter is gold leaf with orange and black. There appears to be a log cabin in the background. The top of the decanter is metal with the raised letter embossing stating: "Sealed container for whickey, patent number 306710, September 18, 1928, The Franfort Distillery, Louisville, KY. There is a flap on the decanter that you can lower exposing a pint bottle of 100 proof whisley. The Federal seal is still intact over the top. There is the label stating that the contents were produced in the fall 1917 by the George T. Stagg Company. The Buffalo Trace Distillery is the surviving entity under which there were numerous former companies. I contacted the Oscar Getz Whiskey Museum in Bardstown, KY. I am told that the whiskey is pre-probition liquor. I am told that the bottle alone may be worth $350 to $400, but was never able to determine the total value. This was in August of 2003. Any thoughts or guidance you may have, would be appreciated. Time is running out and I am about ready to drink the almost 90 year old contents.

Date: 01/11/2007 9:36:14 PM

 Digger, During a renovation project at our church in downtown Atlanta, Georgia two old whiskey bottles were found in the basement (among many modern ones) during excavation and demolition work. The church was originally constructed in 1903 and we believe these two bottles date to around that time or earlier. Attached are photos of the front and backs of the bottles. . Here is further information: Clear Bottle: *     description of the embossing (if any) Jos. A. Magnus & Co. Cincinnati, Ohio - with lion emblem and six arrows *      size, especially the height 6 inches high, 2 1/2 inches wide, 1 1/2 inches deep *            mouth of the bottle, type of lip, whether the mold seam stops or goes over the top of the lip. The style and shape of the mouth is very important to telling both the age and the type of bottle. Rounded lip with place for stopper. Mold seam does not go over top. * base of the bottle (smooth, embossing, pontil markedttlebooks.com/basic ) Smooth with rectangular indentation. Seam around edges. Bottom has vertical interior curve (high in middle). *     shape of the bottle (round, rectangular, square) Rectangular *                    does it have a label, embossed design, unusual shape Deteriorated paper label. In looking carefully at the remains along with some research we believe the brand was "Uncle Bob Rye Whiskey" *            color: clear, aqua, amber, cobalt, emerald green, etc... Clear *  condition, i.e. is it damaged, or stained Small crack on upper back shoulder. Paper label mostly unreadable. *         tell me what you would like to know about the bottle, age, rarity, value or history We are primarily interested in the age and history. Amber (Brown) Bottle: *          description of the embossing (if any) None. *       size, especially the height 6 inches high, 3 1/2 inches wide, 1 inches deep *        mouth of the bottle, type of lip, whether the mold seam stops or goes over the top of the lip. The style and shape of the mouth is very important to telling both the age and the type of bottle. Double ring lip with remains of cork inside. Seam does not go over lip. *         base of the bottle (smooth, embossing, pontil markedttlebooks.com/basic ) Smooth with very faint circular indentation. *    shape of the bottle (round, rectangular, square) Rectangular with curved shoulders and sides. *              does it have a label, embossed design, unusual shape Ring at base of neck. Almost non-existent remains of a paper label. * color: clear, aqua, amber, cobalt, emerald green, etc... Amber *            condition, i.e. is it damaged, or stained Good condition. Includes stopper. Cork is deteriorated. *         tell me what you would like to know about the bottle, age, rarity, value or history We are primarily interested in the age and history. Thanks, Wally & Carol Colly

Dear Digger, EMBOSSING- There is embossing on the bottom. It reads: WM R WARNER & CO INC This is around the bottom of the bottle. MADE IN U.S.A. This is in the middle of the bottom of the bottle. There is also a number 3 and what looks like the letter M inside a circle, but I'm not sure. SIZE- The bottle is 6¼ inches tall. At its base, it is 2½ inches wide. SEAM- The seam goes all the way to the top of the bottle but does not cross over. SHAPE- The overall shape of the bottle is oval. LABEL- None COLOR- Clear CONDITION- No damage. TOP- There is a screw on metal top. There is a design that appears to be part of the metal. It reads: OMNIS ORBIS {A picture of the world} WARNER Established 1866 I have included pictures of the bottle.I would like to know its age and value (if there is any value). I appreciate your time.

Hi my name is Richard-weiner, I talked to you before, I asked you a question about a Hutchinson bottle I found, it was last year so you probably do not remember me, here is my question to you, it is about the cobalt blue Seitz & Bros. porter type bottle (iron pontil), I have never really seen any pictures of this bottle in any books including yours, but there is a description of it in a few of them, and all claim it is a soda? in every book I have read, I have also done some research on the Seitz & Bros. name and factory and it turns out it was brewery and a brewery makes beer right? we have also dug some eight sided mineral waters, with the Seitz & Bros. name on them, the bottle reads:Seits & Bros. Premium Mineral waters Easton Pa, this bottle is a blob top, but the cobalt blue (porter) style has a lower rig with an applied top and just say Seitz & Bros. Easton PAall are (iron pontils), I want to know why books say they are mineral water, when the research I have done says they are beer bottles?, most mineral waters say (Mineral waters) on the bottle no one really knows what these bottles are, but I think they are beer bottles from the research I have done, what do you think? below are a few pix of the 2 bottles and a link to a pic of the factory in Easton PA. Thanks for your time and help Richard Weiner I think this is a beer. ?? some of the Mineral waters we dug that (say mineral water) on them. eBay: seitz beer brewery (item 120073319488 end time Jan-15-07 13:21:02 PST) link

 Hi. I found your email from a website called "antiquebottle questions". I have a bottle that I discoveredwhen going through my dad's things after he passed. Isuspect he found it when rock hunting with my uncle inUtah. I was wondering if it has any value. It has a crown top. It was made by ABM. It has asmooth bottom and is embossed on the sides of thebottle with with the words NIFTY and underneath thatword the words Salt Lake City. This part of the bottleis clear. The top and bottom sides of the bottleabove and below the clear part have very pretty panelsthat look like a cobble stone pattern. The bottom ofthe bottle is embossed with the words: Prop. of Dr.Pepper Bot. Co. Inside this embossed circle it has: 14021-C, the number 20, an oval with a diamond throughit, and the number 48. I want to thank you in advance for any light you maybe able to shed on this bottle. I have search allover the internet but can't find anything about the NIFTY company or soda. Thanks, Mickey Platt

 Hi, Digger, Hope you're still answering questions. I have a flask in a leather case that was bought at a flea market about 35 years ago. The bottom of the case unzips to reveal two small stainless steel drinking glasses, 2" tall. The cups read "Made in Germany" on the bottom. The whole thing stands 8 1/2 inches tall, 3 1/2 inches wide. The bottle itself is about 6 inches tall. There is a screw on cap, then a stainless steel screw-on cap over that. The side has two openings to indicate the level of the contents and read "1/2 empty" and "panic button" in gold lettering. As near as I can tell, the stamp on the bottom of leather case is a smaller version of this: [...]

 Digger: I was researching a bottle I found and came upon your website. I have also found an olive green aachener kaiserbrunnen bottle at a site in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. I am looking for info on it too. It is seamed up to an inch from the lip. The lip is applied on. It looks like a quart bottle. At the same site I have found a ZEPS soda made at the Eagle bottling works in Wilkes-Barre; a number of aqua WHALEN & FARRELL sodas (this was from a pharmacy in Wilkes-Barre). Seamed to the lip and applied lip. A painted on label PATIO from the makers of Pepsi Cola. Also 6oz COKE's from Palmerton, Pa, from Brandenton, Fla., from Hattiesburg and a 10oz coke. There also are WATERMANS 2oz ink bottles and PARKER 2oz ink bottles, and, an ink bottle with no name but says "51 INK 3oz". Did you hear anything more on the Kaiserbrunnen? redson_2000com

I have not been able to pull up anything about this bottling company or it's age and was hoping you could give me some insight. The bottle is a Coca Cola bottle, being 8 3/4" in height, has a green hue, round shape, seam goes over the top, smooth base I believe. It has no numbers or dates. Around the top rim, it states " Quality Beverages." The bottom rim states "Coca-Cola Bottling Co." Anything you could tell me would be greatly appreciated. Here's a picture for you.....

Hi, I live in north Texas and recently found a bottle in a house I purchased. I have spent a couple of hours searching for info and have been unable to find any. The bottle is clear glass, 400 cc, is 9 3/8" tall, 3" wide and 1 3/4" deep. It has a stamp toward the top that says 3XVI and is stamped "blue ribbon" on the bottom. I have found one similar to this on e-bay, but mine is different as it also says on the front "Kyle Drug Co" and Kyle, Texas running vertically up the front. The back has Quality at the top and Purity close to the bottom. I have tried finding info on the Kyle Texas drug co, but to no avail. I am just a little curious as to the age, value and desirability. Since I have been unable to find it, I would assume it would be rare, however this is probably not the case. More about the description. It is smooth on the bottom, the mold seam does not go to the lip, it is in excellent shape no scratches or chips. It does have 5 or 6 bubbles inside the glass, one about 1/2"long on one side and a 1" long one right at the neck.

DIGGER, THIS BOTTLE WAS GIVEN TO ME BY MOTHER. MY DAD AND MOM FOUND THIS BOTTLE IN A DUMP SITE AROUND FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. IN THE LATE 60’S. SOON AFTER THEY TOOK IT TO A ANTIQUE DEALER WHO TOLD THEM IT WAS A BOOTLEGGERS BOTTLE. HE HAD ALSO SAID HE HAD NOT SEEN ONE IN YEARS. THE BOTTLE HAD BEEN PACKED AWAY IN A BOX UNTIL MY MOM FOUND IT AGAIN. I HAVE SEARCHED THE WEB AND E-BAY AND CANNOT FIND ONE LIKE THIS ONE. I DID FIND ONE THAT WAS SIMILAR BUT IT HAD A DIFFERENT NAME ON IT , (HI-ROLLER). IT ALSO WAS A LIGHTER GREEN AND A 9 FLUIDOUNCE BOTTLE. OTHER THAN THE NAME IT SEEMS TO HAVE THE SAME DESIGN. MY BOTTLE IS EIGHT INCHES TALL, IT IS EMERALD GREEN, IT HAS TWELVE PANELS INSET WITH THREE ROWS OF RAISED DICE AND THE NAME S.T. BOON IN RAISED LETTERS, AT THE BASE OF THE BOTTLE IT READS {CONTENTS 6FL.OZS} AND ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE IT READS {FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. 29N} I GUESS THE 29N IS A CODE FOR SOMETHING. THE BOTTLE HAS TWO SEAMS RUNNING FROM THE BOTTOM ALL THE WAY UP TO THE TOP. THERE IS ALSO A SEAM RUNNING AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE. WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE BOTTLE? AS CLAIMED IN THE LAST ARTICLE I DON’T THINK THE (MYSTERY) HAS BEEN SOLVED!! THE ARTICLES BELOW ARE WHAT I FOUND ON THE WEB. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP, JEFF WILSON Have you seen this bottle? Farther into the exhibit is a display showing a bottle that Frank Deitrick filed for Laurens Glass Works on October 18th, 1926, that was patented on January 25th of 1927. The bottle features three rows of squares with the face of a dice inside each square - showing different numbers. As interesting a design as this bottle is, it is not know whatever happened to it, and for whom, if anyone, its design was intended. The exhibit, which includes 150 soft drink bottles, is based on the collection of the Holcombe family. Dr. Fred Holcombe, a native of Pickens, practiced optometry in Clinton for more than 50 years. He died in 2000, before the final arrangements for the exhibition could be made. However, his son, Joe, continued his father's passion for this tangible history with the people in South Carolina. The museum is located at 301 Gervais Street, beside the historic Gervais Street Bridge, and just a few blocks west of the State Capitol in downtown Columbia. The exhibition, which is divided into 8 sections, will continue until January 12th, 2003. Photos by: Bill Baab, a member of The Federation of Historic Bottle Collectors, Augusta, Georgia. LBJ's Canada Dry bottle information by: Dr. Cecil Munsey, Poway, California, from an unpublished History of the Canada Dry Company. FYI : Have you seen this bottle? The current issue of The Soda Fizz Magazine hasgelfire.com/zine2/thesodafizz/Looking_Back_at_Lauren ashort article, with pictures from Bill Baab's visit to the Lauren's Glass Works exhibit at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia. One of those pictures is of the patent design for a bottle, which asks the question, "Have you seen this bottle?" Well, someone not only has seen it, but has them in their collection. Read on... Warren Thompson was the first to write: "I havegelfire.com/zine2/thesodafizz/images/HiRoller_bottl twobottles that appear to be identical with this photo. The first bottle is 9 ¼" tall; clear with four vertical rows; three squares in each row; and each square contains a dice. The dice in one row are numbered 1, 2, 3; the dice in the next row are numbered 4, 5, 6; the dice in the next row are again numbered 1, 2, 3; with the next dice numbered 4, 5, 6. At the neck is "S.T. BOON" on both the front and the back. On the bottom is "FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.", and around the base is "Contents 9 FL. OZS." and "9L.G.W." I purchased this bottle in July, 1995, in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The second bottle is also 9 ¼" tall; identical as far as the four vertical rows of three squares each, with each square containing a dice. The color of the bottle is light green. At the neck is "Hi-Roller" on both the front and the back. On the bottom is "Kinston, N.C." and around the base is "Contents9 FL. OZS". I purchased this bottle in Sept., 2001, in Selma, North Carolina." Then, shortly after Warren's reply, Jimmie Wood wrote: "I have this bottle in my collection, It was made for Forester Beverages in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. The name of the product was "Hi-Roller", which must have some connection to the dice embossed on the bottle. I believe it was a flavor bottle." So, now it seems the "mystery" of the bottle has been solved.

It is a bottle of Gilbey's Spey Royal Scotch Whiskey. The upper portion has a label that reads "Years 12 Old - Full 4/5 Quart. It has a silver seal covering the ends of red and black ribbons which are wrapped around the bottles upper third in a groove. The silver seal reads in part "Product of Scotland - 4/5 Quart * Established 1857 * 86 Proof - Spey Royal Scotch Whiskey - A Blend - W & A Gilbey Limited". It is a tapered bottle which is concave at the bottom where a white plastic music box base is set. Inside this concave is a small Scotsmen who dances when the music box is played. The bottle is still intact and has not had the seal broken. The music box still works and the Scotsmen dances. Pictures attached Any direction you can give me would be appreciated..

This bottle I think was around 1922 or 1923 and it has a picture of a small boy maybe in a fisherman's hat and man on the bottle. I may be off in the year but it was around 1922-1927 Any information you may have on this would be greatly appreciated. . Thank you,

Subject: Detroit bottle update

Date: 01/25/2007 10:52:17 PM

 Digger, Quite a while back, a woman named Kim sent in a question about a deep teal Tamarola bottle from Detroit. A copy of that email and your answer are below. I'm also pasting a reply from Mike Brodzik (Detroit Bottle Club pres), to me, regarding the bottle. I didn't have much info on it, either, and was curious. Feel free to post an "update" on your "Questions I get, " and please credit Mike and he is a wealth of info on Detroit bottles. Thanks, Bill Heatley, Flint, Mich Bottle Club pres.

Hi! I thank you for fielding such questions in this category as I find old bottles to be very interesting. I'm not really sure how to go about describing this particular bottle so your form on characteristics was very helpful. I hope it is equally helpful for you. First off the wording embossed on the front says, TAMAROLA BOTTLING WORKS REGISTERED DETROIT, MICH. THIS BOTTLE NOT TO BE SOLD CAPACITY 7 FLUID OZS. It is a deep teal green, about 7 1/2 inches tall. The side seams appear to run to the top of its crown top. The trade mark on the front and bottom are TCo intertwined. I hope this helps. Thank you for your time and expertise. Anything you can tell me about this bottle would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Kim Kim, I am afraid I am stumped on this one, mostly because of the color. If by teal you might what I would call emerald green as in an old 7up bottle green or Irish green I'd be sure you had a soda bottle. A bottle in that color would not be uncommon. If you mean a bluish green then that would be unusual. I am going to assume it is 7up green in color and probably given the ounce size, style and color suggest it was a ginger ale, lemon-lime or tonic water bottle. The date could vary from 1920-1960. I was not able to find a reference to the glass company embossed on the base. ******************************************************* Bill, The bottle in question is likely to be properly described as aqua blue/green in color. The marking on the bottom and front is the company’s monogram – Tamarola Company. I do not know much about the company since my research is still working in the 1800’s. I have three Tamarolas in my collection; two 24 oz. and one 7 oz. For the date of manufacture on the bottle there should be on the heel of the base a two digit number followed by likely the letter N. The two digit number is of course the year of manufacture. All three of mine are 19N, which means they were manufactured at the Newark, Ohio facility of the American Bottle Company in 1919. There was a rash of company’s that came and went during the Prohibition years in Detroit. The Tamarola bottles are not common but as with most items from Detroit in this time period, there just aren’t many collectors. When I get more specifics on Tamarola, I’ll let you know. I hope to be at the Detroit Main Branch Library and should be able to do a quick review of the city directories in the Burton Collection. BottleMike

I think it's a soda bottle...It's 7 inches high, has a blob top, it is aqua green, has a smooth concave bottom, has a raised image of an eagle, with E.A. POST above the eagle and PORTLAND OGN below the eagle. It has a few bubbles in the glass. The inside bottom is very uneven as is the area where the blob top meets the body of the bottle.

 Digger, First of all, I loved reading through your site. I have collected bottles for years and have only just become interested in their history. I came across a beautiful shaped brown bottle in great condition. It stands about 10 inches high, with the words "MARQUE DEPOSSEE" at the base of the neck and "BENEDICTINE" (it appears to have dots above both E's) and crosses before and after the word. Underneath it reads "B AND B". The opposite side has a right side up horseshoe. The lip (from some of the pictures on your site) appears to be a rolled lip with a form of the tooled with applied ring look. The breaks in the ring a vertical and are about 1/2 cm apart on both sides. The mold seem goes over the lip. Any information would be appreciated. Stephanie

 Hi! I found a lot of history about this Cincinnati whisky distiller and philanthropist. He is best known as the founder of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America. The bottle is dark brown, squarish, 5 1/2 " to the neck and 7 1/2" overall. It is almost 4" wide and 2" deep. It has Ferdinand Westheimer and Son Cincinnati, USA in a circular pattern on the side. No other markings. Excellent condition with no damage. It has a matching flat, brown glass stopper that is exactly the size of the bottle neck but the tail of the stopper that goes inside is much smaller than the inside of the bottle neck. As if maybe the stopper had a cork ring around it or is not the proper stopper. I would like your opinion as to whether the stopper is original and an estimated value. Thanks! Ron Cravens, Texas

Dear Mr. Odell, I am hoping you can help me identify what it is I have, and what kind of value is attached to this item. Several years ago, when I lived in Ohio, I was helping a friend clean out his basement and he told me anything I liked I could have to keep. Among the items I chose to keep was a Mohawk Creme De Menthe Jug. This jug is approximately 10 inches in height, with a loop handle that spans the top of the jug. It has a pouring spout on the left top immediate to the handle, with a cork stopper topped with a pale green stoneware knob approximately 2-1/2 to 3 inches in diameter. The jug itself is cream in color, with pale green ribbed design coming up from the bottom of the jug approximately 3-1/2 inches. The original label is still intact on the bottle, stating "Mohawk Green Creme De Menthe--60 Proof--artificially colored--4/5 of a quart--Made and Distributed by Mohawk Liqueur Corporation, Detroit, Michigan." The bottle also has a State of Ohio Alcohol Tax Seal still affixed to it. The bottom of the bottle is marked as follows: "Mohawk R-4 No. 4 Liqueur". The jug is in excellent condition and is quite unusual and distinctive in my opinion. Up to this point I have not had any luck at all in researching this item as regards age and value, and I am hoping you can help me out in this regard. Thank you in advance for any assistance you are able to give me in this matter. Sincerely, Gene Wagner

Well i have a "Darby's Carminative Mixture" Bottle, 51/2", Clear, Round but cylindrical. I used O/C dates from a web site; ie Bottom has an oval around a diamond with 12 to the left and 8 to the right, and a 2. on the bottom and that could be 1938. My question is two, if the date is 1938 how could it contain Opium? And why can't i find out about the company "Standard Pharmaceutical Corp"? I would like to know if it's not legal to have, sell, order carry around also? Thanks a lot and keep up the digging! Stephen

 Hello We would appreciate your help. My husband dug up an old bottle in Charleston SC. It appears to have been a soda bottle. There is a raised 20'S flapper lady on this bottle and Charleston SC printed in raised letters. It is a clear glass bottle. I once saw one like it in the Charleston museum. Thank You WANDA RABON DUNN

 Hello. I've just moved house and am setting up my collection of violin and banjo bottles in a glass case instead of the windows of my former residence. Rather than using museum gel to secure the bottles, I'd like to find at least 16 holders that have a small footprint, to stand up some of those bottles, which range in height from 5 in to 12 in. Would you please refer me to the dealers who offer this kind of product? Thanks. Rhea CohenSilver Spring, MD

 Hi, I am hoping and I know this could be a long shot but I am hoping you might know the family that ran or still runs the Wheaton Glass Factory in Millville, NJ. I am looking for the Straubmuller family and in particular Harriett Straubmuller or "Hattie". I am an old roommate of hers. Long ago, like 1968 our class actually toured the factory, but I am trying to find her. Can you help me locate her? You seem to know a lot about the factory so I am keeping my fingers crossed that you can help. We went to Purnell together. Thanks. Peg

 Dear Digger I found The same bottle that is at the top of your page, with same embossing, same SEE THAT CORK IS BRANDED, and BELFAST DUBLIN, but is of a pale green color. Does this make this bottle any more extraordinary? Dan Monroe
