After several hours of digging and scraping I came away with a bucket of very old bottles, some of which I will show you here. My all time favorites are the Clicquot Club soda bottles of which I have a pair showing how the logo (on the bottom) changed over the years.
Do you remember Clicquot Club???
This is the newer logo, and the bottle is greener. See how the little Eskimo shows fur outfit.
Other bottles I found are Pocasset Beverages, Friendship Bottling, Hiram Wheaton & Sons, and others.
I do regret not going back down there the next day or any day thereafter but I didn't because I didn't have a place to show the ones I had already dug up. That is until I moved to Maine and bought this house with the bow window facing southwest.
Now they come out ritually every spring and grace the window and I get to enjoy them over and over again.
If anyone has a secret to cleaning them out I would greatly appreciate hearing about it. I used a bottle brush in them with baking soda and detergent but they are still so dirty inside it makes it difficult to get good pictures and for them to sparkle like they should.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I wish you much joy in your day.
Update - I used denture tabs and a tool I made by wrapping a very long and thick pipe cleaner around a thin stick to get the bottles clean. Here is some of the results -
I'd show you more but we'd be here all day................... I think you get the picture. I tried the vinegar, the baking soda, and a degreasing soap but it was the denture tabs that did the trick.
Enjoy your day. Thanks for visiting.
