Dating old bottles jars Free porn dating and chatting sites
According to historian Rhea Mansfield Knittle (, 1927), one of the earliest glass manufacturers in the United States (not counting the unsuccessful attempts at Jamestown in 16) who may have produced considerable quantities of glassware and actually met with some degree of success, was Johannes Smedes (or Jan Smedes), who operated an establishment — probably making bottles for the most part– sometime in the period of 1654-1664 at New Amsterdam (now known as New York City) . What elements/chemicals were included in the glass “recipe”? If it’s an older, hand-blown bottle, who was the glassblower who fashioned it?: Although some collectors and researchers may consider this an “obvious” question, it’s not quite as simple as that. Who was the last person who used it and handled it before it came into your possession? Bottles, jars, jugs and containers of all types, antique fruit jars, glass insulators, fishing net floats, EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass), Depression Glass, antique children’s mugs, and other items are some of the forms of glass I enjoy learning more about. I’m interested in the general history of the glass manufacturing industry in the United States, especially within the sphere of container glass, electrical insulators and tableware (both pressed and blown).
It was extremely hot (especially in the warmer months), noisy, and dangerous for a number or reasons.Injuries, especially burns and cuts, were commonplace.Can the company / maker be identified by the markings on it? All of these questions might come to mind to the collector or layman, flea market shopper, historian, archaeologist, or casual hobbyist………..and my site attempts to answer, in at least some cases if possible, a couple of these questions: Where, and approximately when, perhaps, was this piece of glass made?There’s alot of great information already available on the web, as well as in books and magazines, but I’ve tried to gather some of the very best, basic info together onto this site, in particular concentrating on identification marks found on bottles, insulators and tableware.
I’m also in the process of adding various articles to this site, discussing various glass companies, different types of glass and glass items. The glassmaking industry in the US is a huge field that dates back to the 1600s, and covers a vast array of items and applications, including both handmade and machine-made glass.
