Marlboro Bottle

Post by Echo » Fri Jul 08, 2016 9:24 pm

Found in Lake Washington on Tuesday
I knew Marlboro had brown beer bottles in the 40's but I cant find a lick of info on this guy. It stands about 11.5" and 3" wide at the base

It's a "ballast bottle" soda bottle with an applied lip. Nice find! I love those.

Wow, so much cool stuff still being found. I love Cetacea's blob-top bottles [envy].

Found this today, an 1880's-90's medicine bottle in great shape. Just sitting there. And the usual assortment of clay pigeons.

We've found a few of these WWII era Navy Medical bottle in the channel, but I was surprised to find this one off the beach at Totem Park.

Found the embossed version of my previous post of another blob top. Found these and many other cool bottles on a solo night dive tonight in Tacoma.

I found this really cool blob near Owens beach. There are no markings on it and what's really interesting is it contains a glass and metal/rubber stopper that is inside and won't come out. Anyone have an idea on the history of this bottle?

Tom Nic already found, and posted about an almost identical bottle, but I found this guy at Alki Junkyard last night:

The interesting thing is that I guess the bottler in Fresno and the one in Seattle were both using the same bottle design, but neither one was using the official coke bottle design.

The latest find in Port Townsend...

A miniature whiskey bottle, about 4" high. Who knew they had little airline booze bottles before there were even commercial airlines? That's planning ahead.

I cant get over the last line..

Looks like it might have been in a fire or something.

And I am fairly certain that's what mermaids call a "snarfblatt".

It's actually the second one I've found. I can only imagine that someone takes a whopper hit and drops the thing in the water.
