About Me

Well, I'm just an old glass collector.  At least I got to work in the bottle making business as an Applications Engineer and Management in a Central Mold Shop.  After that I traveled to many parts of the world to visit glass companies and convince them to buy our metal products for mold equipment.  Since retirement I have been studying bottle making methods used from the earliest to 1900.  After 1900 - I had a broad exposure and understanding. 

My special interest is in the early methods of mold repair and glass bottles made in wooden molds.

This is an amazing website. Although I'm not a bottle digger, I'm vastly interested in the things that are surfacing through "backyard archeology".

I have dug  old bottles for over 40 years and now with the children all grown and plenty of "me" time, I can dig almost anytime and during the good months I make every effort possible to get out and dig at least once a week.  I love the thrill of uncovering old glass either in a dump or privy or just along the woods or under the porch of a deserted house.  I collect Warner Safe bottles, colored and embosed common flasks, some historicals, glass figural candy containers, embossed dosage cups, local and amber embossed milk bottles.  I live in Susquehanna County Pa., where it is still rural with many old farms and houses to check out and dig.  Come join me digging when you come through the area. I always enjoy meeting and digging with others.
