this is is the first time i have found unmarked ginger beers, either in stoneware or glass! ⠀

these were found yesterday in an overgrown and silty stretch of river, below what was once a large farmhouse and where the household rubbish must have been conveniently dumped. of the four or five new river stretches waded with @mikespilligan yesterday, this little spot hit the jackpot! ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀

the heavy aqua glass ginger probably dates to around the 1870/80s. after this time the embossing of glass bottles was made possible with new developments in metal hinged moulds and 'words on glass' became the fashion and the norm. by the 1890s, the majority of new glass bottles were embossed. ⠀ ⠀

the plain stoneware ginger is likely from the same early era as the glass. later stonewares (after 1890) were transfer printed with eye catching branding in an attempt to compete with the ever more descriptive embossing. ⠀

i haven't found many ginger beers, and they're certainly up there in the desirability stakes, please swipe for my tiny but treasured collection of transfer printed gingers to date. 😊 ⠀ ⠀⠀

found at the weekend, a lovely mid to late nineteeth century aqua drinks bottle. in the years before bottle manufacture was a completely automated process the glass was mouth blown into a mould. for drinks, where an airtight seal was required, a lip was applied as a separate process. this strengthened the neck to allow for the tight fitting cork.
.
the obvious stretches and elongated bubbles show how the semi-molten glass was manipulated and twisted into shape as it was blown by the 'gaffer'. i love these features, they ensure that every old bottle is unique! (please swipe).

the collectors may hanker after embossed glass but i think there's also beauty in plain antique bottles, especially the early crude forms with their strap and blob tops, heavy mould lines and twisted, bubbly glass. along the bottom are drinks bottles, above are preserves, pickles and sauces, all from around the mid to late nineteenth century. my most recent found bottle here has a lovely (well lovely to me!) pouring spout, simply created by pushing a groove into the glass before it cooled. 😊

The famous codd bottle. invented and patented in 1872 by british inventor hiram codd, for holding carbonated drinks. . the marble in the neck could be used to reseal the bottle of you didn't want to drink the contents in one go. of course little children found the marble very attractive and smashed thousands of them to get it. this one came out of the river dee. .

late nineteenth century beer bottle with barnacles, what's not to love?!!

these are the bottles found this week, pulled out of the mud on a mini mudlarking mooch down at the seaside with @poppythimble. there's a skittle shaped mineral water and a taller cordial type bottle, incredibly both have survived maritime storms and tidal pummelling for over a hundred years. ⠀

i recently found my first post war pepsi-cola at the dump (left of three) and here now two more, slightly later and different, 1963 and 1968...they're coming in waves. these will probably be the most recent bottles for the display cabinet, but seeing the development of this iconic twentieth century brand is fascinating and am thrilled to have found them!
