Bottles…

The hobby of Treasure Hunting has many facets, and one of them is dump digging, which produces everyday rubbish from 100 odd years ago…

From all of the rubbish in a dump, it seems that pot lids & bottles are the favourites to find, its these two that can age a dump site more accurately than any other item, as each layer of rubbish can produce a dateable source through these items…


Apart from the shape of the bottle, company names, top of bottles etc. other names & / or marks stamped or written on bottles are a good indication of their age…
Below is some important attributes to the bottle which helps with their identifications…
“Diamond” shaped registration appeared in 1842…
“Limited” appeared from 1855 and beyond…
“Trade Mark” the bottle was manufactured in 1862 & beyond…
“Rd. No.” Appears on bottles from 1884 & beyond…
“England” first appeared on bottles in 1891…

 

Registration Numbers began on 1st January 1884, with a new number every January 1st… (exceptions are * & occurred on the 2nd January of that year) ….
