Thread: Bottles

  1. #1


    So, last week I push my shovel into the dirt for a nice target and hear glass breaking. I went right through the middle of a beautiful cork bottle. I got to thinking how rare unbroken bottles are. These are my bottles from over the years. Thanks!

    You have a nice collection of old bottles, Drew! Aren't they beautiful? I love the ones that turn purple due to manganese in the glass. The aqua colored ones are great also.
