Found Bottle Buried In River

edited September 2017 in Question and Answer

This bottle has been buried for years. Only one marking; 28 OZ How old is it?


  • One detail I cannot gather from the photos is where the mold seam ends on the neck. I am fairly sure it stops somewhere before the lip which would be consistent with other details.

    This is a very early blown-in-mold bottle made just before the advent of machine glass blowing which began in the 19-teens.

    Generic pharmacy bottles like this were produced in large quantities and sold to local druggists for filling prescriptions.
  • Thank you so much! This island just popped up and there is so much stuff buried there!
