About Me

My name is David and I was born in West Philadelphia.  I only lived there for the first year of

life and now live in West Chester, located in Chester County where I own a 1730 Quaker

farmhouse that was originally built by a Quaker Assemblyman and his family here in

Pennsbury Township.  I am currently semi-retired due in part by an on the job automobile

accident and am never at a loss for keeping myself busy by doing yard work, gardening, and

various home improvements.  I am darn near a lifelong lover of antiques and have been collecting old bottles since the age of 8.

About Me

Hello fellow members i became a member to 19th century Bottle Diggers on January 5 2015. Lets see where do I start? I am a 50 year old happily married man to my childhood sweetheart. I currently reside in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, a mere 30 miles from Colonial Williamsburg,Historic Jamestown,Yorktown site of many revolutionary War battle and Richmond, once the capital of the confederacy. I have had a passion for historic bottles and glass since I was 9 years old. My grandmother played a role in my passion for glass with a gift of my first bottle which i still proudly display today, a carters Cathedral Master ink,cobalt blue.

I have dug numerous dump sites all over the hampton Roads area,with varying degrees of sucess.I have never had the opportunity to dig any privies, gaining permission to excavate someones backyard is a daunting task to say the least. Participating in a privy dig is at the top of my list of things to do.

Thank you for the opportunity to tell a little about myself. I am passionate about inks bitters sodas flasks and medicines and any pontil bottle.
