    A Couple Bottles,A Couple Questions

    A started the day finding another A.R.Frantz bottle this one a clear bottle.Funny how they look darker laying in the dirt.








    Same bottle.








    Next while doing a little digging I found this.It's plastic and hollow up until the loop begins.

    Anyone have any idea what it might be??








    Next find.

    Can anyone tell me what it was used for?It's full of air bubbles and seam only goes halfway through neck.





    Towards the top of the bottle it says.

    "CAPACITY 10 OUNCES TO THE RING".And looks like it was hand done.








    The bottom of bottle.





    And last this bottle with a little damage to bottle.

    Nice "Frantz" bottle. I know what you mean,I have pulled out bottles,thinking they are amber or cobalt,yet they are as clear as can be. The plastic thingy,I dont have a clue ? The 3rd bottle is a food/condiment bottle. Congrats !!!!! I enjoy looking at all the finds from your honey hole. Keep that shovel dirty !

    You're in a spot that keeps on giving. I like the slugplate frantz. Nice-looking bottle. Keep posting and may your back be strong!

    Not much digging,mostly surface finds-a lot of walking.

    Every old foundation or bottle dump I find has signs of somebody else digging.I walk the areas around those sites that I'm guessing these others aren't checking.

    "The company began business in 1870 and also continued until at least 1980 (Zumwalt 1980). The base has the embossing F. H. L. & CO. / N. Y. for the F. H. Leggett Co. and is an example of base embossing that without the label would be hard to determine otherwise; it could also possibly be construed as a bottle makers marking. This bottle has a tooled one-part finish, was blown in a post base mold with no obvious evidence of mold air venting, and is somewhat crudely made (e.g., bubbles in the glass, stretch marks on the shoulder/neck, wavy glass). These diagnostic features would indicate a probable manufacturing date between the mid to late-1880s to mid to late-1890s. However, this bottle design with the ribbed lower body was patented by Leggett on February 26th, 1889 giving a good begin date for this particular style. Other examples of these tall bottles have the actual patent date embossed on the base (Caniff 1997). Click Leggett patent 1889 to see that patent. Click on the following links to view more images of this bottle: base view (embossing is minimally visible); close-up of the neck and tooled finish showing the tooled one-part finish.

    It would have to be a small shovel,it's only about 4" long.

    I've never seen anything like it before??

    Surf that's some Great information!!Thanks!!

    I'm still pretty new at this but am fascinated with the history of bottles.Wish I would have got started collecting bottles years ago.

    I'm so jealous of you guys and the collections you have....

    That plastic thingie- could it be a removable handle for something- like a tea pot or cooking vessel? Almost looks medical- the color. But there's a gasket at the end... Hmm

    Ok,I never did figure out what the plastic thing is.

    Today I found another plastic thing that's very similar to it?Both pieces are right around 4" long.

    Any thoughts?

    Umbrella handles... Look at the 4th and 5th umbrellas, I have no doubt they are umbrella handles now.
