Hi, I found a bottle identical to one on your bottle room page. It is the Amber "Reed and Carnrick Pharmacists New York" bottle. I was wondering if you might know the age and value of this bottle. If so please let me know! Thank you!

Hi, I was searching for information relating to my ancestors factory and your post came up. I would be really love to have a bottle from our factory as we dont have any and wondered if you still have it as I know the post was a little while ago. The factory was for initially mineral water and then lemonade etc as the customer needs changed.

Would really appreciate it if you could let me know, Thanks Vanessa

Rare ? & value ?  Oh, I found one on E/bay but it is not embossed . Thanks Rick. I'm a Indiana bottle digger.

 Hi.  John C. Hecht was my 2nd great grandfather  His wife was Sophia.  They were in the soda water/mineral water business in Brooklyn, NY.  From what I understand through research and what little is still known in the family, he, his wife, and his son John C had the business at was then #10 Yates, Brooklyn, NY.

I would be interested in purchasing the bottle as I have been looking for any and all for quite some time.  Please contact me.

I have a clear glass bottle that is similar to a wine bottle. It has a old fashioned lady(victorian?) kinda frosted on the front and it says ICE WATER.

It has a wire running around the neck of the bottle and going thru a ceramic top with wood actually touching the bottle to stop it up. It has no other markings on it as far as size or anything...any ideas if its old or has any value?

Thank you

Hi there Rick,

 

I've just emailed you with some photos of an interesting blue glass bottle that I found at a small flea market in Amsterdam recently. I was wondering whether you could take a look and let me know if you think it's worth anything/perhaps tell me a bit more about it? I've listed it on Ebay but now I'm having second thoughts!

 

Thank you,

Hi, We recently moved into an early 1800s home in Pawlet, VT and found a few old bottles and I did not see them mentioned on your site ( although I might just have missed them). One is from Holdens Bottling Wks Ballston Spa NY, one is from F.C. Humeston Saratoga and the last is Liberty Bottling Works Angelo Verrigni Prop Ballston Spa NY. All are clear, embossed, have seams going over the lip and need to be cleaned. Any thoughts? Thanks! Molly

I have an orange crush bottle. It is embossed and double sided. It is also undated and 6 oz. there is no number in the bottom of the triangular Alex. Both embossed skewed are identical reading "patd orange crush bottle 6 fl ozs" I haven't been as to find much about it on the Internet. I'm not a collector but have inherited boxes and boxes of old bottles. I have a buyer for the crush bottle but without much info to be found I'm unsure on a fair price. Any help much appreciated!!

We have found an old bottle. it's broken, so we don't know what it says completely... what we can read of it says

fisrt Line "...jones & Co"

second line: ".....importers"

third line: "hanover and blackstone STS"

fourth line "boston , Mass"

the bottle is light purple and has a rectangular base and says "1902" on the bottom.

Any ideas?

I'm looking for information about a flask I have. I believe it to be a pictorial flask (picture under glass) of an unknown politician. It has a screw cap (silver) and was found in a trunk in a barn with some other relics on property I bought back in the 80's. The property has a LOT of history so any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated. It appears to be dated to the early part of the 19th century.

Re your post: BOTTLE OF THE WEEK { 7~10~11 } RARE W.H. WOOD ~ DURHAM

I am Councillor William Henry Wood's great granddaughter. I am emailing to correct you on the information supplied in this post..

He was born in or near Bedlington in Northumberland, and moved to Durham in 1890 with his wife Annie.

In 1891 he started Wood & Watson Ltd, mineral water manufacturers in Gilesgate, Durham.

He was twice mayor of the city in 1909/10 and 1919/20 (as pictured).

The W.H. Wood Memorial Cup was given by his family to Durham City in 2008 and is displayed in the Town Hall together with an acknowledgement of his civic services.

Further artefacts and memorabilia of Wood & Watson Ltd may be seen in Durham Heritage Centre.

The architect you write about in the post, William Herbert Wood is no relation so far as we are aware, and certainly has no connection to the bottles displayed.

W.H. Wood embossed bottles were often found in recent years by trespassers digging on a bankside adjoining Wood & Watsons factory (now housing)!
