Burnetts Extracts Bottle

I found what I think to be a rare reddish/bright orange piece of seaglass, smaller than a pea in Massachusetts on Rexhame Beach in Marshfield.

I also found a piece that is light sea green, flat with the words in CAPS, "FLAVOR" and "FACTS"... Believe it or not my daughter found a piece that I think may have come from the same bottle with a matching type of letter, same color of glass, how rare is that.

Any idea where the glass may have come from with the words? I'd be happy to send pics. I am new at this, and love it!

I did more research, and found out the piece is from a Burnett's Flavoring Extract Bottle out of a Boston Company, most likely from the 1890's - 1910.... AMAZING!!!!! I am attaching a photo of a bottle that it would have come from...

Thanks, Christine!

I think the web page was changed on the URL you sent, since the bottle only appears in the Google image.

However, I got permission to use the above photo, which I think must be just like the bottle you're talking about. There are also more photos of the bottle from different angles. Let me know if it's not.

Also we're looking forward to those pics you said you would send! We can add them to your page here later.

Burnett's Flavoring Extract Bottle

It's Nick from

I am also 99% sure that this is the bottle where your seaglass is from!

I also found a similar piece on the N.J Shore but bigger then yours with the word Burnett's on it and found an even bigger shard with the word Blood Bitters written on it!

It's amazing what you can find on the beach.

When I was in Puerto Rico I found a flawless piece of True Orange seaglass with a diagonal pattern that measured an 1-1/2" in length and sold it on ebay for $310.00!!

Not bad for a discarded piece of glass!
