Hosp. Dept., local sodas from D.C., Virginia, Baltimore, local stoneware, trying to amass all of the pre 1866 embossed mustards and I like some whiskeys and some unusual medicines, have to cut out some categories no inks, poisons, milks, can't collect it all hope to meet you thanx Bruce Jones

About Me

I have had interest in and collected some old bottles that I have found at random sites for 40 years but I have more recently become interested in mostly 19th century hand blown bottles. Although my interest is broad, I particularly love the styles, varying colors, forms and feel of wine and spirits bottles and if I know the history of a bottle, so much the better. Black glass bottles are my current favorites. My collection is growing and I am trying to find bottles that were blown in different types of molds and with different applied finishes. I have yet to find a free blown bottle in sites where I have looked. I hope to have more time to search and dig when I retire next year.

About Me

in 1783, the german Jacob Schweppe invented the worldwide softdrink industry. as a senior marketing man, I build up my spiritschweppes "wunderkammer" - a cabinet of curious refreshment.

The early practitioners of science in Europe, which formed collections in cabinets of curiosities with bits and pieces of art, natural history and antiquities. So I am researching and digging to the roots of Coke worldwide, collecting the milestones of softdrinks and mental refreshment.

A private collection in germany near Berlin contains pioneer items and stories of refreshment of the 18/19th century like Spa, Selters, Schweppes, Struve, Bilz and last not but least Coke, today worlds no1 refreshing brand.

My blog www.spiritschweppes.com is a meeting point of diggers, divers, experts and collectors worldwide.

my pinterest site https://www.pinterest.com/spiritschweppes/spiritschweppes/ is a virtual collection of my loved thema "eggbottles".

There is no better stress release for me, than carefully removing an artifact from the earth.

I love history and looking at the past through bottles. In our woods, we found a bottle dumping ground but oldest we found was 40's. We went on our first dig with my brother but couldn't find any privy. He writes articles for Antique Bottling Collecting Magazine, Peter Jablonski.

About Me

Old operating room RN, likes scrounging of any sort (metal detecting, bottle digging, yard sales/estate sales)

Hubby Steve is an old surgical technologist that is a digging MACHINE...lol.

We have a couple White's detectors, couple Lesch diggers, and an apartment full of an increasing array of dirty/rusty metal and glass.

We travel nationwide and do contracts in ORs, so no telling where we'll be next. We like to meet locals with similar interests everywhere. Home is Northeastern Oklahoma, but we're in upstate NY for the next few months.
