BOTTLES

 It is winter and we have had some days of terrible weather, heavy rain and strong wind, but. luckily, sunny days in-between for drying the washing and doing a few jobs outside.  We had to cancel the Parkinson's walk again on Monday because of heavy rain and strong wind but later in the week on a fine day we finished getting gardening "things" out from under the house ready for the insulation to be installed on Thursday.  I wanted to get it done in plenty of time because of the weather.  Now all we have to do is empty the airing cupboard to give access to the roof.

Yesterday, I got the old bottles that Doug had stored under the house and gave them a wash and a new home.

There were two heavy green bottles, one was Great Northern Brewery Ltd. Auckland Lion Ale & Stout while the other had no markings.



Below: the one on the left is Yorkshire Relish, Goodall, Blackhouse & Co. and the one on the right is Barry's Tricopherous, New York, U.S.A. - I see it was a hair dressing.

On the left, below, is a Brown bottle U.S. Patent 2097912  and on the right a Stephen's Ink bottle



Below is a very tall Champions Vinegar bottle




Below with the vinegar bottle are a triangular shaped bottle, a very heavy champagne bottle and a bottle with Regnier on it which may or may not be old.


in the front below is a "Torpedo Bottle" that were in use from the 1840's to the 1870's

    1. Doug and Jean used to go to old house sites and had quite a collection but most got left behind when they moved here. I am glad I got them sorted.

    1. They look better than the odd bits and pieces that were in the cupboard before.

  4. Old bottles can be beautiful and at the least very interesting.

  5. Lovely to see these relics of the past. I once helped with clearing a ditch which was opposite a pub, we turned up several bottles and old glasses, presumably thrown there by drinkers more than a century before. They were displayed in the pub for many years - I wonder if they're still there?
