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".

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Found this bottle on Day Island North Wall today. It's a turquoise blue with a weird round bottom and the mouth looks like it was an after thought and put on by hand. It has a stamp on the bottom :

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

Recent finds off of Port Townsend... A stoneware beer bottle and ketchup bottle, circa 1870-1890's. And -- this one was tricky to identify! -- a Chinese stoneware ginger jar, ~9 cm high, c. 1800's?
