    This one is old. The new section where I found the bottles was added in 1820-1830.

    Yes, very cool. I like the old toothbrush. Is it bone or celluloid? Either way it is a turn of the century example. The Bromo's are very common especially in your neck of the woods. The corked tube in the last pic is broken I take it?

    I'm loving those old bottles. The large blue ones would make some fierce patio lanterns.

    I am not sure what the toothbrush is made of. A corked tube is broken. There is a lot of broken glass there.

    Take a close look at it with a magnifying glass. Here- distinguish bone, ivory and celluloid

    This is for gambling chips and memorabilia but it works for any item really.

    BTW- I like the bottles too. I probably have 3 dozen of the Bromo's in all different sizes, a counter display, ice bucket, matchbooks, note pads, drinking glasses, etc. I'm from P.G. county originally. They were based out of Baltimore. When I first started collecting things years ago, Bromo Seltzer was one of them.

    Dumb question here...why did people of yore throw trash (bottles, broken plates, etc) in their crawl space?

    Quick & dirty test. Take a pin or needle heat it with a lighter until it's almost red. Poke a tiny (very very tiny) hole in it smell the smoke. If it smells like burned hair it's bone or ivory, melted plastic = celluloid. Take a magnifier & look at it if it's bone you'll see pores.
