Identification old bottles bought in the Caribbean
My name is Martin and I moved to Aruba approximately half a year ago.
I recently picked up two bottles at a porch sale, and I was wondering if someone knew what they were and whether it’s possible to ID what era they are from. Unfortunately I don’t have any background info on them.
They feel very robust and they’re quite heavy.
Most locals are unfortunately not that fond of old/antique stuff so when the object has no more use, it usually gets thrown in the bin.. These bottles are therefore probably not that old (perhaps very cheaply made “decoration bottles”) but you never know, they could also be old 19th century wine / ale / rum / gin bottles, I wouldn’t be able to tell…
I’m also quite curious whether they are hand-blown (the collars are a bit wobbly) or machine made (on the other hand, there’s no pontil mark).
looking forward to any replies!
all the best from Aruba,
