  • Description : This is the bible for Bottle Identification. Since there were hundreds of thousands of uniquely different bottles produced in the United States (and Canada**) between 1800 and the 1950s, it is beyond the scope or even possibility of this or any website (or book) to provide specific details about more than just a tiny fraction of those bottles (Fike 1987). This site instead attempts to help the user determine some key facts - approximate age & function - about any given bottle based on observable physical characteristics. Hundreds of specific historic bottles are used as examples within the pages of this website to illustrate the concepts discussed; with luck you may find the specific bottle you have an interest in discussed though typically you will not.
