Subject: info about Syrup of Spruce Gum Sisters of Providence 1875 bottle

Date: 11/01/2006 12:08:23 AM

Hello, I saw on your question and answer forum that Tony Bilich asked about this bottle. Just so happens that I bought one off eBay and this is the info researched by the Sisters of Providence Archivist in Seattle WA. Phyllis  The Case of the Sirop de Gomme The three-decade old community of the Sisters of Providence in Montreal in the 1870s faced many struggles to sustain and advance their work in Canada and America. During this time they encountered an entirely new challenge-a civil lawsuit-that shed light on how they were perceived by others. The claim could be seen as a sign of growing prominence, even influence, of the tight-knit community. On the other hand it could be interpreted, and indeed it was, as an attack on the community's aims of charity to the poor and, therefore, on its raison d'Ítre.   The medicinal compound contained in this five-inch tall bottle became the center of a cause cťlŤbre. As part of their repertoire in treating and controlling diseases, the Montreal sisters formulated various mixtures and compounds that became the materia medica of the community (see Past Forward, Summer 2004). One compound they patented in Ottawa and the U.S. in 1875 was spruce gum syrup or sirop de gomme, likely used as mucilage for ingredients in cough and cold medicines among other drugs. An innocuous-sounding substance, it seemed. Yet by the end of the same year, a pharmacist had filed suit against the motherhouse contesting its right to sell the compound. The lawsuit lasted for three years. The Rev. Elie J. Auclair, in his 1914 book, Life of Mother Caron, vehemently defended the sisters' side: "Certain persons went so far as to bring law proceedings against the good and compassionate Mother [Caron].Despite her advanced age, somewhere about 1875-1876, she was obliged to appear before the Court, defending the rights of her Community as regarded the 'Compound Syrup of Spruce Gum.' People are always found to declare, that the Sisters enter into unfair competition with business people. But they do not take into account that these servants of the poor only keep the barest necessaries for themselves; that whatever they can earn by their industry is for the benefit of their works.and that finally the large houses which they build are for the accommodation of the needy of every description, and that in such establishments, they are obliged to meet all expenses.These cavillers will not see that in the exploiting of some commercial article, as for instance, medecine [sic], that the only reason it can be sold cheaper by the Sisters is because each one does her share of the work, simply for her keep, and then, they cry out upon the house tops that a wrong is being done. Poor short-sighted humanity! Some of the very persons who have spoken so strongly against the Sisters may be only too glad, some day, to find an asylum with them, for themselves or for their relatives." The dispute "which at that time had quite a vogue" lasted until Sept. 18, 1878 when the community, represented by two eminent lawyers, was found to have the right of commerce of the compound. According to Mother Caron, "It is only the desire of God's glory and the good of the poor that could give the necessary courage. Heaven has vouchsafed to bless that act of self-denial by permitting us to win our suit." Tested in the courts of law and public opinion, the sisters would tap into the well of "necessary courage" in future challenges.  back to top http://www.providence.org/phs/archives/past_forward/5main.htm#Top  On the Lookout for Artifacts   Phyllis Silva-Keith, P.A., holds the late 19th-century bottle she donated to the Archives. Providence Associates hold dear many things relating to the religious community. There is one unique member who keeps a watchful eye for objects that have direct connection to its history. No one can match the doggedness of Phyllis Silva-Keith, P.A., of Kirkland, Washington, who happens to be the Associates co-executive director. She calls herself an "e-Bay watchdog" of all things Providence, referring to the Internet auction site. Her searches have resulted in her acquiring first-edition books, jubilee memorabilia, a 1940s commemorative vase, postcards of the Montreal founders, and other collectibles from as far as Oklahoma. Phyllis won a bid on a medicinal bottle which contained a compound called "syrup of spruce gum" used in the late 1800s (see above article). Of her online experience she says, "You never know what you'll find on e-Bay. I was so surprised when I found this bottle and delighted when I won the auction. I just couldn't picture it on any other shelf but ours!" A sharp eye, computer skills and sense of history make Phyllis one savvy treasure hunter.-JND

Subject: Solution for glass stopper stuck in small glass bottle

Date: 11/03/2006 6:30:37 PM

FYI: Solution for glass stopper stuck in small glass bottle Recently I found the solution for this predicament with the advice of my friend Don Arabian ... Simple careful heating of the bottle and chilling of the stopper will free the stuck stopper... Use small pan of heated water ( about 110 degrees ) to heat only the bottle up to the edge of the neck.. Be careful to not allow the hot water to contact the stopper ... Keep the bottle in the water for 20 minutes or more ... Have another shallow pan of ice cubes/water ready.. This cold water pan must be shallow and just deep enough to emerse the up- ended bottle stopper only so that no cold water contacts the bottle neck... Hold the stopper end in the cold water for a few minutes and then try the pull the stopper straight out of the bottle neck... May require a few attempts to succeed... Ron Bentti

Date: 08-01-2005 hello My name is Ryley Antinori, I live is a beautiful state full of open ground with lush shrubs, trees and vines! And there are water falls everywhere, and I was recently on a hike in the rainforest of the beautiful state of Hawaii, and along the way I saw a few cannons embebbed in the ground and some brick igloo looking things....it was a strange hike... barely a path, It was hard to tell where it was so My boyfriend and I decided to take our own turn and climb up to the top of the falls... on the way My clumsy self slipped, and a bottle shot out from the mud. My boyfriend fell in love with it because of the inscription... It is a brown glass, slightly stained (almost shiney like a fish scale) it is 9 inches tall, rectangular bottle, I cannot feel a seam on the bottle, there is a smoothe lip on it 1/2 inch long. The bottom of the bottle is smoothe almost flat but slightly raised. I don't believe that there is anything written on the bottom but on the front there is some stuff. It says, "Federal Law Forbids Sale or Re-Use of this Bottle" across the top , (2 lines). in the middle there is a crest... it is 2 deer with a cross in the middle and a fox on top. At the bottom of the crest there is a a banner that says, "pro pelle cuttem" And at the bottom of the bottle it says EXPORTERS HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND the bottom is 3 and 1/2" X2 and 1/4 " like I said it is rectangular but slightly curves into those measurements. Also there is a label still attached. it is hard like tin, or something. its says,"hudson's bay company, incorporated May 1670" in a circle! and in the middle... The crest again. I have no clue what this bottle is worth, or more importantly how old it is... I will try you send pictures soon! If you think that you can help me, please!!! Thank you Ryley Antinori This is the exact same bottle I have in Minnesota. My ancestors were original trappers and traders with the Hudson Bay Company and I just wanted more information about the bottle itself. I really enjoy the bottle itself. Thanks!

Subject: about TDV bottle

Date: 11/08/2006 6:37:58 PM

Dear Sir, I read on your webside the following: Sir: Many years ago my Dad and I found an old dump in the woods in Southern Ct. In the dump were many bottles (mostly milk). One of the bottles was more interesting to me: It is a lightish green with a ship on the back and an eagle on the front. Under the eagle were the words "TWD." Recently, I did some research into this bottle. As you are probably aware, the bottle is quite famous. It was (if not a fake) made around 1822 by the bottle maker Thomas W. Doyette. The ship on the back is the U.S.S. Franklin. In my research, I was somewhat disheartened to find that this bottle had been replicated many times in the past. For example, the bottles were reproduced later in the 19th century and Lestoil produced many such bottles in the 1960s. How do I know whether the bottle is a fake? I do not think that it is one of the Lestoil bottles for 2 reasons. First, we found the bottle in a dump with many older bottles. It seems too coincidental to me that someone would have tossed a Lestoil reproduction into this dump, which just happened to have a lot of other old bottles. Second, according to the book I read, the Lestoil bottles were produced in 4 colors ( I forget which they were) but the colors were not the light greenish color that of my bottle. But the book did point out that some of these colors were blended by Lestoil. I would appreciate any assistance that you could provide. Wes Phillips Wes, Your question is a good one. I agree that is is unlikely to find a reproduction of an old bottle in an old dump. Yes, the Lestoil Company did reproduce this flask, but it looks very dissimilar to the original in many respects. the lip treatment is completely different from the original, which has a plain sheared lip. The base is very different, the original having a pontil mark and the repro the number "7" embossed on the base. Like you mentioned the color, Lestoil made them in blue, amythyst and clear. An original, will probably have a degree of wear on the base, a pontil mark (sharp glass where the pontil rod was broken off). The original has 25 rays above the eagle, 8 vertical bars on the shield. End of olive branch extends into the oval frame with an inner band of 23 small pearls. I could find no other reference to this bottle being reproduced. Digger. I like to say that I got a bottle like the original described by you. The color is amber.and the base has number 5 on it. I got another bottle which when we face it it says on the left side General and on the right side Washington written verticaly both words and betwwen them is the prtrait of Washington On the other side is a eagle wich hold in his beak a olive branche and is facing to the right and with the left leg digits it holds 3 arrows.On the base is number 1 and the color is green. I got both of them at a trifty store for 7 dollars. I lke to hear your comment. George

My name is Charlie & not long ago I was scuba diving in Port Phillip Bay & I found a Black Bottle with the cork still sealed inside. The substance remains inside, being that the bottle is Black I can hardly make out if it is wine or beer (looks like beer having seen some sort of foam in the light) It is a round bottle in excellent condition. I think it has been there for some time now because of the build of coral spread around the bottle & at the bottom of the bottle. There are no labels, dates or embroidery. It appears to have been hand made. It doesn't stand straight because of the warped base. HEIGHT: 28cm or 11inches WIDTH: 8.5cm The base is a convex type that looks like a pyramid 3.5cm deep. The neck of the bottle up to the lip is 8.5cm & there is only one ring below the lip. PLEASE SEE PHOTO'S TO HELP YOU MORE. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THE BOTTLES Age, Rarity, Value & History if possible. I look forward to your response Digger. With Regards, Charlie I

Hi, I found your website after googling Park and Tilford. I found a tin box that belonged to my Grandmother. It says Park and Tilford Ginger and lists several locations in New York City where it could be purchased. It also noted it had locations in Paris and London. Could this be the same company that was in the distillery trade? Any notion as to how much this tin might be worth? It's in great shape. I think it dates back to the 1920's. Thanks. Laura

Subject: dug Wyckoff Union Bluing bottle

Date: 11/10/2006 10:28:55 AM

Greetings Digger: I am looking for information on the "WYCKOFF & Cos UNION BLUING" bottle. It appears to have a graphite pontil mark, and the mold seam going up both sides stops at the neck. It's 7 and 1/4 inches high and made of light blue glass. I saw several questions about this particular bottle on your site in different months, but could not find your answers. I'd like to know the history, age, and relative value. The reason I'm perplexed is that this one showed up in a Civil War campsite near the Holston River, and I want to know if it is an anachronism to the site. It does not show up in any of my bottle books. I included a photograph of the bottle for you in the attachment. Thanks for your time and generous knowledge. Great website, by the way. William Beard.

Hello, My name is Beth. I have a Paul Jones American Blended bottle of Whiskey. It says it is Blended and Bottled by Paul Jones Distilling Company. Louisville, KY., Baltimore,Md. Eighty Proof. It does have Labels in great condition. It's one quart. There is a pink/red U.S. Internal Revenue label on it. The tax number is 576434613. It says series 112 on the top. On the side there is an occupational tax on intoxicating liquors for the state of Wisconsin. I would be very grateful if you could give me an idea as to how much this is worth.     Thank, God Bless      Beth

On the bottom are numbers and a small marking and in the middle it says D 126 Liquor Bottle. The very edge of the bottom rim feels like tiny glass bumps. On the back it says federal law forbids the reuse of this bottle. It looks like a screw on cap. Labels are "beige"? with dark brown.  I hope this is enough!   Beth

Hi there, I hate to ask you to repeat your answer to a question that two others have asked you already, but I did not see any answer on your site, so I am assuming you answered them personally. I too have a light green bottle with a beaver on the bottom which has no other markings. I found it in a very interesting place. I purchased a house with a hidden basement where I found a still and many different bottles (obviously a place used to brew during the prohibition days) in Mechanicville, NY. It was the only bottle that seemed to be of interest, so I kept it. Would much appreciate knowing a little more. Thanks so much, Melinda

Well Emily, it is going to be difficult to track down the company. I have no listings for it except for one other person who wrote me back in 2000, I have an old bottle, from J.M. Oliver and Sons. I would really appreciate your help in determining the value and history on this bottle. Some details on this bottle are as follows. Size, 7" tall, Rolled lip, Large open pontil, This bottle registered April 12, 1897, and must not be sold. We are very new to the internet, and would very much appreciate a response. Sincerely, Vince Sounds just like your bottle. Your bottle is interesting in the fact that it has an applied seal and etched markings. The dark green color would have protected the oil from light and would help to keep it from spoiling. The bottle is not one that was made in this country, it was, like the olive oil it contained, imported. It probably came over here on a ship possibly into the port of New York. My guess about the age would based on the markings late 1890s. Registered means, the brand was trademarked, but we do not know the name they used. That means they registered the name of the olive oil, like "Kellogg's Frosted Flakes" is the name of a cereal. I have attached a trademark for Belden's olive oil, the only one I could find. See others from the Trademark Office below. There were about 3100 trademarks listed for olive oil...I did not look through all of them.

 Dear Mr. Odell, I am a 5th grade student from Pennsylvania and my humanities class and I are doing a research project. My humanities class and I just went to a park nearby. We dug for about 2 hours looking for whole bottles. Unfortunately I didn't have any luck finding a full bottle, but I was successful in finding something close to it. I was checking out your web site and found it to be very helpful. I'd like your help in dating the pieces of two bottles that I found. The first piece that I found was the bottom half of a kick up bottle. It's tinted green and is 1 and 1\4 inches wide and the kick- up is about 2 inches tall. I can't tell the actual height of the bottle since I only have the bottom portion. The second bottle I found is much more complete. It has two seems going upward to about half way up to the lip. The base says, WT U0CO 4 It is 5 5\16" x 2 1\4" x 1 1\4". It is fairly clear and has a few bubbles in it. Attached are a few pictures of both bottle pieces. If you could be any help at all it would be greatly appreciated! Sincerely, Kelsey

Hi, I was given a bottle that was in the ocean off Victoria, BC in sand or mud. I am wondering if it is a reproduction. My first impression is that it is a fake. It is about 12 1/2 inches high and 3 1/4 wide at the widest part, and has "1883" embossed on the bottom. It is very uneven on the outside, as though the glass had run down the outside, but the inside appears smooth. The "seams" are not straight, and the "drips" continue over the seams. It is light green and seems to have an oily sheen to it. The thickness of the base is uneven, and the lip is cut off at an angle to the rim. The mold seam continues partway up the lip, faintly, but not over the opening, which is smooth and round. I thought you could quickly tell me if this is a fake. Thanks, Dorothea Hoffman

I have not been able to find anything similar on the net, including Ebay. Anything you can tell me about it or it's value would be greatly appreciated By the way are you from Oklahoma? I was born there and we just returned from a three week trip there. Sincerely, Judy

Hello, I am Wilfred Jordan from Nova Scotia, Canada. I recently came across a bottle from an auction that I would like some information on. The bottle is 8 and 3/4 inches tall, has one pint printed in the top of the glass. The back of the bottle has pictures of grapes and oak leaves, printed on glass. On the label, it says:  Maple State American Ruby Red Sweet Wine Alcohol 14% by volume Bottled By Wine-Glow Wineries New Haven Connecticut The bottle isn't a typical wine bottle but looks like a whiskey or rum bottle with a screw cap. I would appreciate if you could let me know any information about this bottle. Thank you, Wilfred Jordan

I am writing in hopes that you can connect me with others that are searching for the same info on a Sicilian gold Pieta bottle, through my search your question pages have had at least two others with the same bottle. I am under the impression that these bottles are rare since it is so difficult to locate any information on the bottle or the company. The Italian language barrier isn't much help either. If you could possible round up an e-mail address for these people so I can find out how far they have come in their search I would greatly appreciate it. I have a liquor decanter made in Italy, it is the Pieta' and stands 12 to 14 inches tall, Sicilian gold is on the bottom along with Eva sud Morolo Italy also a picture in a crest shape. Also patent pending, on the back where you pour the liquor from there is a wax seal and 56 stamped into it. I have tried to find out information on this piece for the last two years with no luck. Hope you can help. Thanks I am afraid I am not going to be much help. digger

" The bottom reads 4099-N 3 5 and what looks like the Anchor Hocking symbol. Also a partial paper label. Lid had slight rust and great graphics a grape cluster, nice green pickle and " Wine Cured Made with fresh cucumbers, garden dill , sweetened wine and blended with aged vinegar salt onions and rare spices". The jar is clear with smooth shoulders and a seam that goes along both sides all the way to the top of the twist top. Lid screws on and fits nice, probably held 16 oz. Any ideas on age or value?

We were digging in an old dump that was not used after 1935. We were digging with the humanities class. We found the base of a bottle.We did not find any other pieces that seem to belong to this bottle. We were hoping you could help us. On the bottom of the base, it has a W and a slightly indented circle that partially covers the W. The base is 2 - 2 1/2 inches wide. It is clear glass. The phrase "NONE GENUINE WITHOUT" is printed; however, we cannot see the entire base. We aren't sure if there are other words.

Dear Digger Odell, My name is Robin Kovac and I am a student at Goodnoe Elementary school in Newtown, PA. I went on an archaeological dig in Tyler State Park and excavated a bottle (see picture). I would like to learn the history of my artifact. From my own research, I assume that the bottle must have been created no earlier than 1910, and that it would have had a cork or glass stopper. It would be great if I could get your expert opinion on what this bottle may be, when and where it could have been made, how old it is, and the value. Here are the facts about the bottle: a.. no embossing b.. length:1-5/6" c.. width:1-2/8" d.. height: 2- 5/16" e.. seam mold goes over top of lip f.. smooth base g.. square at base h.. round at rim i.. clear color (cloudy white where cork or glass stopper may have been) j.. great condition with some scratches k.. no label Thank you for all your time and effort. I will be looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Robin Kovac

Dear Digger, This bottle is very dark cobalt blue and is 6 7/8" tall and 4 1/8" wide. The seam line on the shoulder runs diagonally then up the neck on the sides. Some small bubbles and one large (about 1" long and 1/4" wide) bubble can be seen when you look through the bottle, also on both front and back you can see what looks like 3 wide folds in the glass. The bottom has a roughly rectangular space made into the bottle so that it can stand upright. The front and back are also concave shaped. There is no writing anywhere on the bottle just this beautiful flower, leaf and vine design around all 4 sides. We would like to know what kind of bottle this was and it's value.

My brother-in law gave me a very small bottle. 3 inches long that tapers from 3/4 inches at the top to 1/4 in at the bottom. It has a small hinged metal lid. the opening under the lid is about the width of a flower stem. It is clear glass with little ridges pressed along the outside side. Someone thought it was to keep flower fresh. It looks old to me. Do you know what it might be? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I am cleaning through my dad's collection of bottles he dug up which was probably in the late 80's shortly before he passed away. We are finally sifting through them. (gently of course) (my mom needs to pay her property taxes and we are trying to get some money raised) I've been reading up on them and learning, especially from your site, which is awesome. (Unfortunately my dads Kovels' book is an antique now too). Anyway, I come across a bottle that seems to have no seam, an applied top and air bubbles including a very large one. (sorry, I like the bubbles) The bottle is 10 inches high and approx 2 1/4 inches in diameter at the base. It's a heavy bottle and is an olive green in color. I'm attaching photos to see if you can help me identify it and if it has any value. I apologize I haven't cleaned it up yet. I took a photo of the bottom of the bottle because I haven't grasped the pontil thing yet. Thank you for your time. Lorrie.

I searched your website and did not find anything on there about it. Do you know what it held? How old it is? I assume it must have had something like steak sauce in it! But I am curious.

Marlene, I stumbled upon an inquiry you made back in april of 2005. My name is Ryan Weilersbacher. Originally from McKees Rocks, I now live in Jacksonville Florida. My great grandfather Peter G Weilersbacher Jr. started a wholesale liquer business on Island Ave. in about 1906 which during prohibition was a ice cream parlor (speak easy) and post prohibition was Weilersbacher's Bar, then finally Pete's Bar until 1986 when it burned (with the rest of the block). He was from the southside of Pittsburgh and had an older brother Jonathan. I was always told that they ran a quite successful beverage distribution company. I never knew they also bottled. I am interested in finding one of these bottles. Do you still have one? Thank You, Ryan Weilersbacher

Hello, Thanks for taking the time to listen to our question. We were searching for some info on a unique Milk of Magnesia bottle which has a patent date of August 21, 1906. It is cobalt blue color. It is a very neat looking bottle and was found during a hunting excursion. It is in excellent condition as we can see, no cracks and no chips. It was found lying upside down. The bottle has embossed letters on the outside and it has a 3 on the bottom and seems to be approximately 7 inches high. This bottle, we are able to read every letter very clearly. We found some info that there is no value, but because of the color and the date, we were interested in finding just a little more info. Our interest of old bottles will continue and we will continue to collect whether there is a value or not. The antiqueness of it is pretty neat to have, knowing this bottle has survived 100 years. Any info you could give us, we would greatly be appreciated. Also, any hints or suggestions on how to clean the bottle for our viewing. Thanks again, we'll be looking forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerly, rosmar7

Please advise of age, rarity, value of these bottles. They are 17/1/2 inches long and a base length of 2 1/2 inches and 6 1/2 inches around. The lips are small and the seam stops at the lip. The base is smooth and the gold embossed design is gold leaf and raised glass. They are emerald green in color and are in extremely good condition. The rope is horse hair or hemp with the stopper of the same. The letters blown into the glass are SP.VE with the "E" coming off the side of the "V" on one side of each pistol and on the other side DOPOSE. Both are at the base of each handle. We might be interested in selling them if they are of any value. Please advise. Thank you.

How can I get in touch with that person? My husband's great - great - grandparents were the one's to bottle the Hausburg soda, and I'm sure one of his cousin's would like to purchase that bottle if the person hasn't sold it already. Anyways, if they have sold it, but have better pictures of the bottle I would greatly appreciate more photos being sent to me. I got this bottle (with 7 others) at a garage sale and am curious about it's value. The bottle is 7 & 1/2" tall, 2 & 1/3" in diameter. It has HAUSBURG on one side and C. H Hausburg, Blueisland, ILL. on the other side. At the bottom below Ill. is A C W L. On the very bottom is CHH. Enclosed is several pictures of the bottle along with a note that was inside of it. If the bottle is of any value? How do I go about selling it? What is it's age? Anything you can tell me about it.. Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide. Ken Bozeman Seems like someone did some of the research for you. The Note indicates the bottle is a product of Charles H. Hausburg in business from 1871-1932. What I can ad to you knowledge is 1) The bottle style is called a Hutchinson Soda, so called for the patented stopper named after the inventor (by the way a Chicago soda manufacturer.) 2) Hutchinson soda bottles date from 1892-1914. 3) Value-wise: the bottle is obviously a dug bottle (note the heavy staining). Chicago has hundreds of different hutches. (Blue Island is a city a short distance from Chicago). Most Hutches similar to yours sell for $8-10. Ebay would be one place to sell the bottle.
