    found really big Amber Cork Jug! Any idea on age??

    Hey friends.


    I have two neat bottles here but have no idea as to what was in them or the age of either one of them?

    The first is a very large jug amber cork bottle. It stands about 14 inches tall and about 5 1/2 inches wide.
    No writing. The bottom of it says 3 under a stretched out triangle symbol.


    The second one is a smaller one. It is actually about the size of a 20 ounce bottle now. It appears to once had a cork as well. not sure. Don't think its half as old as the big one... any ideas? thanks!

    The bigger one is a chemical type bottle,probably from the 1920`s ,it is a machine-made bottle as evidenced by the Owens ring on the base.The other one is not as old,and looks like a crown capped beer bottle,which originally had a paper label.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
