Carters Combined Copying and Writing ink through the years – interesting to see the progression of information on the labels – Daniel Baldwin
I thought I would take a moment to group some of the really remarkable photographs that have been posted on Early American Glass and Bottle Collectors on facebook this past month. The composition, lighting, content and care taken with each picture is evident.
Remember to try to post a large enough file so the picture is crisp. It always helps to caption the picture too.

The handled bottle on the right was used by my great grandfather (1856-1925) to take his homemade wine to church for communion. Would have loved to have known him. He was an Alabama farmer, lay preacher, built the church along with the altar and communion table, made coffins, delivered babies, acted as the doctor when there was none to be had, ran a school in his barn to teach the local black children to read and write, and ran a country store.

Picked up this unusual globular with slightly flattened sides (left) at Keene. Would it still be considered a globular bottle?? Never saw one before, now I see that John Pastor has one in his current sale (found in Ohio). Any thoughts on it? – Michael George
