"Mandarin Ginger of East India" - So it is proclaimed on the 95% intact label on this unique bottle. The colorful front label - which includes some kind of monument with "natives" worshipping it along with multi-colored designs - also notes at the bottom that the product is from "HARTWIG KANTOROWIGZ - POSEN - BERLIN HAMBURG" of the "case" style milk glass bitters fame among a host of other alcoholic products. The front label is quite interesting and easily readable although moderately dark. (Also see the bitters bottles page for a couple more Hartwig Kantorowigz "bitters" bottles in milk glass a this link: http://www.historicbottles.com/bitters.htm )
The back label (click HERE for a close-up) is darker but totally readable under a strong light and magnifying glass. It is also about 95% complete but covering only half the area that the front label does. It has some great medicinal claims as follow in English - "By using this potion daily in moderation, being of a nice taste and excellent flavor, it will regenerate and reanimate the function of organism and especially operate on the normal digestion thus giving strength to the system of the nerves and conferring thereby vital powers to the human frame." Wow...wish it still had the contents! All the label is in English, so obviously it was bottled and sold in English speaking countries...this one likely in the U.S. since that is where I acquired it.
The bottle has some unique features which include the shape as you can see in the images, a dispersed "sand" type pontil scar (click Base View to see such though the pontil scar is very hard to see, but easy to feel in real life), the cool applied handle and sheared/cracked-off and fire polished "straight" finish or lip. This is one of those weird bottles that exhibit characteristics of an earlier 19th century bottle (pontil, lip, applied handle) but is likely from the late 19th century. It is 7.5" tall and in mint condition having never been buried; no chips, cracks, dings, staining, etc. It appears that the label itself may have been coated with something (lacquer?) but not sure as it might just be the glue from the original label application. In any event, it is a great looking bottle that one sees without labels rarely and occasionally in amber glass without the handle. $125
"KLONDYKE" Flask - This is a nice example of an very interesting bottle with some well documented history. Recently (September 2014) an article was published in "Bottles and Extras" - the official publication of the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors - about this very bottle. (It was written by Jack Sullivan.) Long story short is that these small liquor flasks were invented and used by a George Smithhisler - a Mt. Vernon, Ohio liquor dealer - who dreamed up the flask as a tribute to one of the last gold rushes of the West - the Alaskan Gold Rush (which was mostly in Canada strangely enough). The flask is supposed to portray the snowy white mountains of Alaska. Gold was discovered on the Klondike River (Yukon) in 1897 and started what many then believed would be the last gold rush in the West and of which they wanted to participate for that reason. The California Gold Rush of 1848-1849 (and on) spawned the famous "Forty-Niners" rush; the Klondike (also spelled Klondyke...like on the bottle's label) created the "Ninety-Eighters" as many rushed up to participate in 1898. So these flasks apparently date from about 1898 into the very early 1900s as Smithhisler was out of the liquor business by the 1910 census. The label which is pictured in Sullivan's article noted the contents as containing "Nuggets of Pure Gold from Klondyke"...aka "whiskey," I guess. The label fit the round flat panel one can see in the image.
This flask is just under 6" tall, milk glass as shown (all are of that glass), has a crudely "cracked off" finish/lip rim with some cursory grinding to smooth it out leaving he usual minor chipping along the grinding edge (click close-up of the ground screw-thread lip to see such), and a smooth non-pontiled base with no makers marking. However, it is believed to have been made by A. H. Heisey Glass Company of Newark, Ohio (who began business in 1893 continuing until 1958) who were known for milk glass production primarily with "tableware and decorative items, both blown and pressed" (Sullivan 2014). This flask is perfect (a tiny bit of in-making roughness at the rear base from the body mold half/base plate interface gap) and has an apparent period screw cap on the finish. Whether the cap (a bit rusty but solid) is original or not I don't know as the images in Sullivan article show at least three different caps on these bottles; this would be a fourth type which does fit down tight. In any event, the bottle is in mint, as manufactured, never buried condition but without the splotchy original gold and gray paint that some originally had. Having seen an assortment of these through the years it is common for these to be totally unpainted...but whether that is "original" or not, I do not know. Nice, historic Alaskan gold rush item! $75
Chinese "Tiger Whiskey" rice wine/liquor bottle - These Chinese liquor jugs are made of glazed pottery - "brown stoneware" - and were made from who knows when (centuries ago?) until well after U. S. Prohibition as later ones from the mid-20th century are commonly seen with the raised lettering "Federal Law Forbids Sale or Re-use of This Bottle" - a sure sign of post-1934 manufacture. This example is likely from the pre-Prohibition era, i.e., 1900-1915 (possibly late 1800s), as it was found in Oregon where Prohibition started in 1915 and doesn't have the noted lettering. This nice clean example has a medium to dark brown glaze and is just over 6.5" tall. The condition is excellent with one small (<1/4") and very shallow (no depth really) glaze flake on the flared rim, a tiny bit of wear around the widest part of the body, and a shallow, short (<1/2" long) flake off the inside edge of the base. These jugs virtually always have irregularities and flaws like this which are as likely a product of the hasty manufacture as post-production dings. In any event, this is a fine example of a relatively common item - at least in the West where the Chinese in the 1800s and early 1900s were congregated - that every collector should have...and makes a wonderful decorative item also. $20
Blown decanter with original stopper - This great looking decanter is 10 sided in the body and neck with three horizontal rings; it stands almost 8" at the top of the lip and 10" to the top of the stopper. The tooled lip or finish is flared and the bore (inside) of the neck ground to more securely accept the blown and ground stem stopper (The stopper is hollow - like a bottle itself kind of - with a ground rim or base). I can't tell if this decanter was blown in a two (body) piece mold or a three-piece "leaf" mold due to the design - the latter being a relatively common configuration for specialty items like decanters, cruets, salt & pepper shakers, and the like. This bottle has a smooth base, is of clear or colorless glass (maybe an every so slight pinkish tint), and though hard to date precisely, likely was manufactured between 1890 and 1915. Condition of this bottle is essentially mint with no chips, cracks or other post-production issues to the bottle or stopper though it does have some overall whitish content haze on the inside of the body - which is a bit heavier towards the bottom - from something having sat and evaporated from the bottle over time. This may wash out though I did not try; the outside image shows it isn't too detracting. A very nice item that would be a great gift for someone - especially if filled as intended, with some upscale liqueur or liquor. $30
PALMER'S GENUINE FLORIDA WATER - This is a fine example of one of the more popular nationally distributed Florida Water products, maybe second only to the famous Murray & Lanman's version - which is still made today! (See the "Sold" section below for a pontiled M&L's Florida Water some years back.) For more information on Florida Water bottles in general, see my Historic Bottle Website section on the subject at the following link: https://sha.org/bottle/household.htm#Floridawater
This example is also boldly embossed vertically on the reverse with - SOLON PALMER / FLORIDA WATER / NEW YORK; click embossing to see an image of the other side. The 100% intact and colorful label also notes that the product was "Prepared Only By SOLON PALMER New York". It also retains much of the foil "capsule" that covered the upper neck and finish (aka "lip" finish being the glass makers term for such).
This bottle is 8.75" tall, has a tooled "oil" finish, a nice blue aqua coloration, some "whittle" to the glass, a few bubbles, was blown in a "post-base mold," single vent marks on the front and back shoulders. Those manufacturing related diagnostic features would indicate a late 1880s to late 1890s production. The bottle is in mint condition and the label darn close with just a bit of soiling and wear. There are (or used to be) people whom collected the myriad of "Palmer" bottles - particularly the emerald green perfume/cologne examples. This would be an excellent addition to such an assemblage or if you collect Florida Water bottles (like I used to decades ago). Great example! SOLD!
Medium darkish amber early umbrella ink - Stoddard manufacture? Well, everyone speculates about that with these early umbrella inks so I won't (or maybe I just did?). It is the "right" amber color, but umbrella inks like this were standard offerings from many/most New England & New York/New Jersey (Midwestern even?) glass houses of the mid-19th century. Like many of these lovely bottles, it is a beautiful little jewel that looks like it was poured into the mold.
It has sheared/cracked off (more likely) and re-fired straight finish or lip, a blow-pipe pontil scar on the base, was blown in a two-piece hinge mold as evidenced in the base image (click to enlarge) by the mold line equally dissecting the base, and dates from around 1845-1855 most likely. The surface of the glass is glossy, waxy, with some rippled whittle along with some glass thickness waviness visible in the image (click to enlarge). It may have been professionally cleaned although I think it was fire polished when made - a common bottle treatment at that time with some types of bottles, especially those with sheared or cracked-off finishes like this. Color is a medium to medium golden or root beer amber and fairly represented by the image. The condition is essentially dead mint with no chips, cracks, or staining. SOLD!
HARRISON'S / COLUMBIA / INK - Although these little ink bottles are not particularly rare, they are quite coveted due to the multi-sided conformation, cool name and early manufacture. They also come in an array of colors which are WAY more expensive than this more typical aqua example. The offered example is a nice blue aqua in color, has a crudely rolled lip or finish, a blowpipe type pontil scar to the domed base, and dates from the 1840 to 1860 era. The bottle is near mint with no chips, cracks or staining (may have been professionally cleaned?) and only a couple light scratches to a rear panel opposite the embossing which is pretty decent for these bottles which can be somewhat faint at times. It also has some nice waviness to the glass and an overall look of crudity commensurate with the early era of its manufacture. I cover these particular bottles in more depth on my Historic Glass Bottle Identification & Information Website at this page: http://www.sha.org/bottle/household.htm However, here is the brief write-up on the company that I have on the linked page: "This is a grouping is of three different colors of the Harrison's Columbian Ink - a fairly popular ink during the mid-19th century given the number examples that are seen today. They all have vertical 8 sided bodies, blow-pipe pontil scars, cracked-off/sheared and rolled finishes and date from the 1840s to early 1860s period. These bottles were made for Apollos W. Harrison who was a Philadelphia dealer in "books, maps and ink" from about 1843 to 1877 (McKearin & Wilson 1978; Faulkner 2009)." Nice ink! $95
Amber Cone Ink - This is a nice amber cone ink dating from the 1890s to 1910 period. This was found in Portland, OR. back in the late 1960s. The color is a pleasant medium honey amber, it has a "bead" type tooled lip or finish, smooth base (a faint number "2") and is a bit under 2.5" tall. Not much else to say about it that can't be seen in the image (click to enlarge) besides it is near mint with only a few faint small scuff marks; no chips, cracks or staining. Nice example! $35
Tea Kettle Ink - This bottle was, like most bottles I offer on this website, was purchased to illustrate on my educational Historic Bottle Website. This tea kettle style ink had the following write-up on that site, which tell its story (some of it referencing other parts of the following page on that site): http://www.sha.org/bottle/household.htm :
The tea kettle inkwell or ink bottle pictured is another ink that crosses the line between being an inkwell or simple ink bottle. Like the aqua center hole ink bottle above this bottle also has a cheaper, utilitarian look to it compared to the cobalt blue teak kettle ink bottle above, which certainly was intended for indefinite use. Of course, this bottle could have been reused after the initial purchase with ink. It has a tooled straight finish which accepted a cork closure, an eleven sided body, and has no evidence of mold air venting. It was (apparently) blown in a true, though asymmetrical, two-piece mold where one portion of the mold formed the base, heel and underside of the neck with the other portion forming the entire body and upper portion of the neck.
The base is embossed with PAT JULY 13TH / 1880; click base view to view such showing the embossing. Below the patent date is a marking which appears to be three interlinking circles with some faint letters in each circle which is either an unknown bottle makers marking or is related to the company that used the bottle. To view the actual design patent click: Design Patent #11,868. The patent notes that this was called a "Fountain-Bottle" and specifically patented for the spout angle and bulge at the base of the spout, the pen rests on the top of the body, and feet bumps on the base (see base image) - or all those features in combination. The patent was granted to one Michael H. Haggerty of New York, NY. A search of the few references on ink bottles listed the bottle but nothing about what company used the bottle, what the noted marking on the base may mean, nor anything about Mr. Haggerty. Covill (1971) did note a variant of this bottle that has PAT. APPD. FOR on the base indicating manufacture between April 9, 1880, when the patent application was filed, and July 13, 1880 when the patent was granted! Since these bottles are fairly scarce in the authors experience, they were probably only made for a few years in the early to mid-1880s.
In any event, this is a pretty nice example in pretty nice condition...it does have some overall light internal haze and a bit of wear from use (primarily on the base), but no chips, cracks or other post-manufacturing issues. $50
BILLIKEN - THE GOD OF - THINGS AS THEY - OUGHT TO BE - This great thought is embossed on the four sides of the pedestal base underneath the "Billiken." The base is also embossed with "Patent Design / 39603" which was the same little smiling fat guy patent design used for cast iron banks (common), book ends, pendants, and many other "Billiken" items of the period. This bottle is the rare milk glass version (also comes in clear glass, often painted) with a ground screw top (with virtually no grinding related chipping) with what is almost certainly the original shaker cap with holes (also about perfect), 4" tall, ca. 1908-1910. The Billiken fad started during the early 1900's and this figure was patented in 1908 according to internet sources. Bottle is perfect and hard to find as they were only made for a short time, it appears, when the fad was going strong. Nice item in perfect shape. $125
AYER'S - HAIR VIGOR - These are popular bottles with collectors - particularly for displaying in the window - for obvious reasons: the wonderful deep "peacock blue" color. This example is about 5.3" tall, a tooled "bead" finish or lip, and dates from around 1900 or so, I believe. The earlier - 19th century - versions of these bottles were the aqua flask shaped bottles with AYERS embossed on the base. Later (or contemporary?) examples to the peacock blue ones were also made in cobalt blue. (I think later since the cobalt ones tend to be machine-made, though not always). The base of this example is embossed with J. C. A. Co with an "8" (or "B"?) above and "8" below that embossing; click on base view to see such. This bottle also has the intact neck label which though largely unreadable (a bit readable with a bright light and a magnifying glass) is 100% intact and proof that the bottle was never buried. Click close-up of the shoulder, neck, and lip to see such. Bottle is in pristine mint condition. I acquired it decades ago at a second-hand store in NW Oregon. $50
Croxley Fountain Pen Ink - A Dickinson Product, Made in Gt. Britain - That is most of what this 100% complete fully labeled English style ink bottle says on that label. In addition it reads - "RED Flush pen with water before filling"...so we know it contained red ink (aka "carmine" ink). This is a fine example of a cylindrical "burst top" ink bottle that dates most likely from sometime between the 1890s and the 1910s, when a lot of these type ink bottles were exported into the U. S. from England. It is a nice bluish aqua color, has the rough "burst-off" finish or lip, is just over 2" tall and 1.75" in diameter, smooth base. it is nicely whittled and is essentially in mint condition with some residual ink & dirt inside. The label is about as perfect as a 100+ year old label can be; see the images. A very nice looking ink bottle that I used to illustrate that bottle type on the Historic Bottle Website as burst-off finished ink bottles are a commonly encountered ink bottle type in the U. S. Specifically, it is illustrated on this webpage: http://www.sha.org/bottle/household.htm $20
Stoneware ink bottle - This is a cute little stoneware ink bottle that was reportedly (by the person I acquired it from) found on a Civil War site back East and thus dating from the 1860s. It is about 2" tall and 1.8" wide, has a nice tan/orange glaze and is in very good condition with just one tiny flat flake off the shoulder - the "lip" is perfect on this one, though crudely formed as such handmade items are. I don't know if this is of American or English manufacture, though stoneware bottles of both origins are fairly commonly found on historic site across the U. S. This example was acquired for and pictured on the Historic Bottle Website as a representative item showing that ink didn't always come in glass bottles. $20
Chinese "utility" ceramic pots - Here is a couple nice Chinese "brown stoneware" items found in the Northwest probably along the Columbia River (acquired years ago from an old NW collection). These jars were ubiquitous to areas where the Chinese settled beginning with the California Gold Rush in 1848 on into the early 20th century in many mining areas throughout the American West and even British Columbia. They were used for a variety of different products imported into the US from China including pickled vegetables, dried foods, spices, and who knows what. This pair of pots is almost pristine with no significant edge chips (one small one on the base of the large example) or other issues besides just the inherent crudeness of their hand manufacture. The larger example is at least a quart in size, measures 5.2" in height and 6" side at the shoulder. Both have shades of the dark brown glaze that is typical of brown stoneware Chinese made items. The smaller item is around a pint in capacity and measures a bit over 4" in height and maybe 4.5+" wide at the shoulder. I've always thought these Chinese items found in the West are just as "Western" in an historical sense as those items made here as they represent yet another of the great migrations that formed the Great American West. Great historic items in great shape! $50 for the pair
Magnum of Nuit De Chine "Peanut" Shaped Perfume bottle with Stopper w/silk case - Here is an interesting little perfume bottle that dates from the early 20th century. It is in the shape of what I would say is a peanut with a peanut shell textured body and ground glass stopper. It is mouth-blown (aka "hand-made" not machine-made) and approximately 3.6" from the tip of the stopper to the tip of the round base. The cover is apparently of black silk with an inner liner of red and white check fabric which also appears to be silk.
There is the same gold metal label on both the bottle and the silk snap cover. The metal labels are embossed with MAGNUM / OF / NUIT / DE CHINE / CONTENTS MADE BY ROSINE / PARIS. That - NUIT DE CHINE - means something like "Night in China" according to the Google translation. The internet also tells me that the fragrance was first concocted in 1913 by Maurice Shaller for Paul Poiret's Parfums de Rosine. It was considered "expensive" at the time with the original bottle intended to "suggest" an opium bottle - the use of which was vogue in Paris at the time. This bottle appears to date to within a decade or so of the introduction although perfume bottles are hard to date as they are still made sometimes by hand for upscale perfume.
The condition of the bottle and stopper is mint with no cracks, dings, staining or other post-production issues; what one would expect from a bottle that has never been buried. The inside of the slip case has some wear (fraying) where the neck and stopper rubbed against the fabric as well as a bit of soiling as one can see in the image. Click INSIDE image to see the little pouch open; click BACK image to such of the pouch and bottle. Cool little perfume bottle which I've had for decades - acquired long ago at a garage sale in Oregon. $25
PROF. I. HUBERTS / MALVINA LOTION / TOLEDO, OHIO. - That is embossed vertically on this milk glass lotion bottle. The bottle is 5" tall, square with beveled corners, mouth-blown with a tooled prescription finish, has single air venting marks on opposite non mold seam shoulder corners and was blown in a cup-base mold. It is faintly embossed on the base with W. T. & CO. / (undecipherable letter or number); click base view to see such. That was one of many different markings used by the manufacturer Whitall, Tatum & Co. (Millville, NJ.) whom operated under that company name from 1857 to 1938. The noted base marking orientation dates the bottle between about 1880 and 1895 (Lockhart et al. 2020) which in hand with the noted air venting helps confirm manufacture between the dates noted. The following is from my Historic Bottle Website where I used this bottle to illustrate "lotion" bottles:
"This bottle is of the style known as a "French square" and was commonly used by druggists for their products and prescriptions. It was called by that name in many late 19th to early 20th century bottle catalogs (Whitall Tatum 1879, 1924; Illinois Glass Co. 1899, 1926; Obear-Nester 1922). Click Portland druggist bottle to see a virtually identically shaped and proportioned French square bottle that was made for a Portland, OR. druggist and produced in a plate mold, but as with most druggist bottles, blown in colorless glass. This lotion bottle has some physical evidence indicating it was also likely produced in a plate mold, i.e., a slightly pronounced line or faint ridge around the edges of the embossing panel. The Malvina Lotion was first introduced in 1874 and was produced until at least 1935 (Fike 1987). (The advertisement to the left is from 1910.) The label indicated that it was a product that could "...cure freckles, pimples, moth patches, liver mold, ringworm and salt rheum." (The name "Malvina" was created by the Scottish poet James MacPherson in the 18th century, likely as a derivative of the Gaelic word for "smooth brow" [Wikipedia]). The earlier bottles were made in milk glass with later ones (probably in the early 1900s) were of both amber and cobalt blue glass (Fike 1987). All the examples in the authors experience have been mouth-blown so the bottling after the early to mid 1910s must have been in unembossed - label only - bottles."
Fun information, eh? This example is in mint condition with no chips, cracks, or visible staining. $30
BARNIZ lotion (?) bottle - Offered here is another likely lotion bottle made in milk glass that I believe is quite rare...or at least I've only seen a few and they were usually of colorless glass not milk glass. The few milk glass ones I've seen came from the old Phoenix, AZ. dump as did this one back in the late 1960s. I say lotion because a lot of milk glass bottles that come in the "druggist" bottle shapes (this one being a "Blake" style druggist bottle) held lotion. However, Barniz is Spanish for "varnish" so maybe it was a lotion women used to "varnish" their skin soft? I have a hard time imaging this bottle held regular varnish as it doesn't hold much - maybe 4-5 oz.
In any event, the bottle is embossed vertically with just BARNIZ though the base is embossed with W. T. CO. (arched upwards) / P / U.S.A. (arched downwards) which is also for Whitall, Tatum & Co. - a marking they used the first two decades of the 20th century. Base view to the left. That was also the time frame for the noted Phoenix dump. The bottle has a bit of dullness to the outside but hard to quantify due to the opaque glass color. Otherwise it is free from chips, cracks or other damage. It is 4.5" tall and has a tooled "prescription" style lip or finish in glassmaker speak. Nice and believed rare item for your milk glass collection. $30
Group of 3 small perfume bottles - (Click on the images to see much larger versions.) At least I believe these to be all perfume bottles since they were all found together and the shoe and "flask" (upright one in images) almost certainly are. The third "pipe" one could have had small, hard candies I suppose...or at least I remember little glass guns from my youth in the 1950s that were similar and had such in them.
All these small bottles date from the 1870s to maybe 1890s, are made of colorless (clear) glass, are mouth-blown (aka "hand blown" or "hand made") in two-piece molds and have tooled single collar lips/finishes. Click HERE to see another different view image of the group. All of these bottles are in very good condition with just a bit of haze from having been buried. Other individual bottle details follow:
-The shoe is 2.75" long, with the lip/opening being the toe of the shoe. It has a minuscule touch (literally) of roughness in one small spot on the lip which can't really be seen but felt slightly.
-The "pipe" is 3+" long with fancy embossed hatch work around the bowl which has a segmented embossed bulbous cover. There is also fancy fluting on the stem of the pipe. The lip is very crude - almost looks applied, but I think it was just sloppy tooled. There is a short "cracking-off" (the blowpipe) shallow flake just below the base of the lip which is smooth to the touch and simply an in-making crudeness feature. (The image above - click to enlarge - of the pipe has the shoe behind it to take an upright shot.)
-The "flask" (also with the shoe behind to make it stand up) is the only one with embossing. That is an embossed circle of rays with an inner circle having the letter "D" inside. No idea what it stands for and the body is fairly wavy and crude. The bottle stands up fine on a flat surface; it is just being propped up with the shoe because of the cloth squishiness of my photo background. It stands right at 3" tall and only about 3/8" deep at the base front to back...held very little perfume. It also has two rings on the neck - one at the base and another about halfway up the neck.
Nice set of perfume bottles - a popular bottle collecting genre - and all for one price. $35
Wickered & handled miniature demijohn "cologne" bottle - The wicker and handles are, of course, just embossed on this cute little bottle. These are early American (pre-Civil War) bottles that were largely produced as containers for cologne, though other "...cosmetic liquids as well as cologne and toilet or "sweet" waters" according to McKearin & Wilson's 1978 book "American Bottles & Flasks." They dated the large and interesting group of Antebellum cologne bottles to "183o-1860s." The open oval label space on the reverse (second image to the left) would have told the story about the contents if the label was still there, but it is long gone.
This example - like most of the earlier ones I've seen - has a "blowpipe" style pontil scar (right image) which was formed by using the end of a (in this case) very small diameter blowpipe doing double duty as a pontil rod. (I discuss pontil types at length on my other educational "Historic Glass Bottle Identification & Information Website" on the following linked page: https://sha.org/bottle/pontil_scars.htm ) I have two of these bottles and a quick comparison indicates they were made in totally different molds though upon casual looking appear identical. They are not - having different looks to the wicker embossing, the faux handles and other subtle features - indicating that these bottles were either made over a long period of time (wearing out molds) or were made by different period glassworks...or both. (I've also seen later examples which are not pontiled, were blown in a cup-base mold and have tooled finishes dating them to the later portions of the 19th century or even early 20th. It was a popular style for cologne.)
This offered example is about 2.75" tall, has an inwardly rolled "straight" finish or lip, made in a true two-piece "hinge" mold and of a pale bluish aqua glass. This example is perfect mint condition with no chips, cracks, or staining; I doubt it was ever buried. It does have a bit a little wear on the base from sitting somewhere for at least a century and a half. $60
