Default Found my First Cobalt Bottle!

I think it's probably 1950's. That's about the age of the dump I was exploring. Definitely love that color!

That's probably a Milk Of Magnesia type bottle. There may be a date code on bottom. Older ones were embossed in the glass, later ones like yours originally had paper labels. Nice window bottles.

Beautiful. Whereabouts are you located? Good cleaning job. Interested in selling it? Let me know! I collect bottles, especially the cobalts.

Am trying to get into collecting them. How big is your collection do you have any milk bottles?

Cool! I like the cobalts also, I have a few of the cork top type embossed Bromo-seltzers.

I gather up the odd color bottles from my digs and sell them at some of the local flea markets and I sell a lot of the cobalt blue ones to the fairer sex who seem to love 'em. Also real small perfume bottles.
