Found this beautiful, small cobalt blue old bottle on beach in Fortescue NJ.

Totally intact, no chips, has a #19 on bottom.

Does anyone have any information regarding age of bottle, what it was used for, value etc.

Cobalt Blue bottle
by: Lynn

This bottle looks like a Keasbey & Mattison Bromo-Seltzer, Bromo Caffeine bottle. I know because I collect them (my grandfather worked for the company in Ambler, PA).

It dates back to about 1880-90s when they were manufacturing pharmaceuticals prior to the asbestos business.

I have seen, and purchased them on ebay for between $5.00 to $25.00.

Can't believe you found this at Fortescue. I looked for seaglass there and found nothing.

Good find!

Wow beautiful

One of my favorite spots to hunt.

I can never decide which part of the beach to hunt first. Both sides seem to give different things.

Beautiful bottle.
