Port Townsend still holds some treasures...

From today's dive: a butter pat dish (circa 1890-1910?), "Greenwood China made for J B & Sons Hotel Department" and stamped Trenton NJ; and a small bottle (4") still with a cork and holding some mystery liquid, embossed PCGW (Pacific coast Glass Works) on the bottom.

Found this [gin?] bottle in the shallow, rocky area near Norrander's reef (Rockaway Park on Bainbridge Is.), which was a surprise because I figured the area had been scoured years ago.

I don't expect it's worth much, but it has a nice embossed logo with a palm tree: "Palmboom CM Meyer & C" + "Schiedam"

Found this on In Lake stevens on our dive tonight with My girl Echo... diggin in the goo i pulled this one out ..
I added Blue water to the bottle to help see the lettering

During the first half of the 20th century, some hock wine type bottles were produced in primarily colorless glass (sometimes with a slight pink or straw colored cast) that were elaborately embossed with the brand name VIRGINIA DARE WINES ( Garrett & Co., New York) with additional embossing of an eagle on a shield. These very common bottles held different wines produced by this company and are usually machine-made, though some early ones are mouth-blown, dating from just before Prohibition to the mid-20th century. The picture to the left is of an example that is 13" tall and has a brandy type finish and likely dates from the late 1910s or 1920s Shorter versions were also made. Later examples had an unusual brandy finish with a crown cap bead lip or upper part (1920s and 1930s) and external screw threads (40s and 50s) (date ranges estimated based on empirical observations).

I unfortunately can't claim this bottle, it was found by another local diver but when he showed it to me, I stole a picture. I thought it was a really cool looking bottle, and figured you might enjoy seeing it too.

Your syrup / cruet glassware is pretty cool, again no real value but an unusual find. Based on the style of the pressed glass I would say 1910-1920 on that one.


Thanks!

Dang It !! i want to find the Money Bottle ...

I found an example of the embossed style

Hi Alaska-Herb, that Seattle Bottlers Association is pretty common, sorry to say, dates from the 1920-30 period. Would have had a paper label to give soda type and contents. Value probably less that $5 but a fun find. The others are super common, sorry to say. And you are right on the time period for those you listed!

Hey bassman, how much do you want for the embalming fluid bottles? Lets just say I am in the business and kind of need these. I xan pay you in black market body parts or cash. Take your pick.

Anyone have a background source location for a Seattle bottlers association What i found looks like a 6 oz soda pop bottle only labeling is SBA on the neck at two locations and Seattle Bottlers association. I have not really cleaned it up yet so I haven't posted pics. The seam runs all the way through the lip which leads me to that it is a ABM bottle after 1903 but I don't have anything else. Thanks for the help.

This bottle ID stuff can be a lot of fun.
Last dive brought up a
1929 Clorox bottle
3 Heinz bottles 1 pickled item from 29 to 37 ,one ketchup from 1918 to 19 43 and a brown mustard bottle from 1918 to 1925
And an old paste jar with the center tube for the brush to sit

Again thanks for the help and any leads
Herb

Hi Sitka Diver, yes, all commons but that Orange Crush from Centralia is a better example. I've not seen that one before, have had plenty from other towns. The Fox Snappy Drinks is the typical odd style deco bottle from the 1920's-30's. The Davis Vegetable Pain Killer is a cool bottle, yours look screw top, can't quite tell. This medicine goes way back to the 1850's and the early examples come with pontil scarred base. This medicine was featured in the Tom Sawyer Huck Finn book.

Hi Diver Dave, some cool items, love the steamship china and that cool larger plate with the child. The pumpkinseed whiskey flask dates from the 1890's is common but still a cool shape. Ditto with the amber blob top beer. Any embossing on either of those? The stoneware ale two tone bottle dates from the 1880's, was typical ballast (filled with ale) when the ships from England would come over to the USA for natural resources to bring back to Europe. The bottles would be offloaded and sold and the hold filled with stuff to bring back. Neat items!

Found this stuff last weekend here in Sitka.

I thought the Orange Crush bottle was cool. I'm sure it's common, but I still like that it had Centralia Wash. on the bottom.

I'm going to put the Orange Crush bottom next to my Fox Snappy drink bottle.

Image

And here's the medicine bottle that's label Davis on the front, Vegetable on one side and painkiller on the other

Image

The unnamed medicine bottle has lots of bubbles in the glass: Hope the macro worked....

Hi Jackie, sorry to say I don't have any info on that bottle. Assuming it is that same "deco" style bottle as the Seattle example, it dates from the 1920's, and probably was a flavor bottle (Orange, Lemon, Grape soda) from the Coca Cola bottler. Not much value, but a neat item nonetheless.

I found a coca cola bottle that matches everything posted about this one except the stamp is Portland Ore. Do you have info about that one?

Thanks. . .Jackie
