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.
