bottle bottoms

Found this in Atlantic City also - only thing we can make out is an "81" on the bottom; kind of an oddly-shaped, thick bottle.


Any ideas what this may be/where this is from? Thanks!

Sea Roamer
by: Bob

I found a piece this morning walking the shore in Hull, MA as the snow commences.

The piece appears to be the bottom of a bottle. The glass has the letter " I " stamped into the piece.

Very worn, very smooth piece. Brown in color.

Curious about the imprinted stamp.

Barely visible, however scrutiny reveals the stamp.

Any ideas out there?

Similar piece - sea glass bottle bottom
by: Diana

I just found a similar piece yesterday on Cape Cod. It is so heavy and think that I was astounded. I have never found a piece this big before. Mine is clear. Nice find.

nice catch!

I find bottle bottoms like this one ALOT. They seem to be plentiful on the Atlantic City beaches on which I like to hunt. I usually find white, but I also have a beautilful amethsyst and gorgeous blues.

Embossed Letter Bottoms
by: Anonymous

Old milk bottles often had huge embossed letters on the bottom of the bottle. I believe each dairy had a different letter.

Found this page, too, about letters on bottles
by: K. Johnson

A.....................The letter "A" is often merely a mold letter. If it is an abbreviation for a glass factory, it could stand for one of several companies. One possibility: Agnew & Company, Pittsburgh, PA (c.1854-1894+). See "A & CO." mark. Another possibility would be Adams & Company, Pittsburgh, PA (1861-1891). Originally Adams, Macklin & Company (1851-1861), they did manufacture at least one type of fruit jar circa 1866, lettered "Adams & Co./Manufacturers/Pittsburgh,Pa." on the front. However, the great bulk of their glass production seems to have been pressed pattern glass and high-quality tableware and novelties, especially throughout the later years of their operation. In 1891, they joined the merger known as the United States Glass Company. Note: If the bottle is machine-made, the letter "A" would indicate a much more recent company, perhaps Arkansas Glass Container Corporation, Jonesboro, AR (1958-to date).
