This is a comprehensive website devoted to the identification of American made bottles produced between 1800 and 1950s. This new web based resource was created by the author of this High Desert Antique Bottle & Medicinal Tonic Website in a cooperative effort between the Bureau of Land Management (my ex- employer; I'm now retired) and the Society for Historical Archaeology. It is intended to be a tool for bottle collectors, archaeologists, and the general public in identifying the type and approximate age of just about any bottle made in the U.S. or Canada during the period listed.
Even in its not quite (but very close) complete form the site contains a wealth of information that can help answer many of the bottle questions a viewer of may have.
