    Some Michigan bottles.

    These are a few of the Michigan bottles that I have. The first two are 1870's pop bottles. The blue one reads Beebe & Braddock Bay City Bottling Works and the other one is City Pop Works East Saginaw Mich.
    The cobalt blue bottle is an 1890's G. Norris & Co. City bottling works Detroit Mich. pop bottle. It's called a hutchinson after the guy that patented the bottle. The honey amber beer bottle is from the late 1880's to 1890's. I still has it's original cork in laying in the bottom. I have a few more Michigan bottles that I will post if you want to see them. Thank's for looking.

    I agree! Those first two Hutch bottles are lovely. I love their frosty color, it reminds me of beach glass. Thanks for posting!

    Keep digging!

    Re: Some Michigan bottles.

    Just to let everyone know some of the bottles are hazy or stained. The two pop bottles were found in the river and had sand running over them for a 130 years so I gives them a frosty appearance. I have put baby oil on them so it gives them a clean appearance. It's a lot cheaper than getting them tumbled.

    I only have four hutches and I found one metal detecting because it picked up the steel stopper. If you get a chance post I would like to see it.

    Bay City had a coke plant too, found a broken one this summer pre-war by the glass coloration and thickness.

    Thanks for the interest in the bottles. I can't let go of the cobalt one because it's the only one i have. In good shape they can go for around $250.00 If you search around the net you should be able to find an aqua hutch pretty cheap.
