Any ideas on these guys? I found the exact bottle here. https://picclick.com/Antique-KELLOGGS-W ... 03887.html

I just haven't cleaned my bottle fully yet to take good pics. Is it truly from the 1890's?

Thanks,

Rob

found this one the other Day while out on a bottle Mission , I found a really nice spot for bottles , and here is a ANTIQUE CANTRELL COCHRANE Belfast Dublin ...
Info : Dr. Thomas Cantrell established a business selling soft drinks in Belfast, Ireland, in 1852. Alderman Henry Cochrane became a partner in 1868, when Cantrell & Cochrane was established. The company made mineral water and medicated aerated water. Round-bottom bottles were made from 1869 until the early 1900s. Ginger ale, seltzer water, and medicated aerated water were sold in round-bottom bottles. Because the bottle had to be laid on its side, the cork stayed moist and didn't dry out. Holders have since been made to display the bottles upright. These bottles are sometimes called "ballast bottles" because they may have been used as ballast on ships. The Belfast company is still in business, now operating as C&C Group

Hey Tim,

Those weren't far out at all, maybe in 55' of water and more 'in town' than at Point Hudson. The ginger jar was so covered in barnacles it looked like a rock -- with a hole in the top.

After these big storms lately I can't wait to get back out there. Alas, it might be after Christmas before I'm back in town.

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?

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.
