A GREAT Website to Help Identify Bottles

A wonderful online resource for identifying any type of bottle can be found on the SHA website (Society for Historical Archaeology). The link to the Historic Glass Bottle Identification & Information Website is  http://www.sha.org/bottle/

The author of the website created it when he worked for The Bureau of Land Management (A part of the U.S. Department of the Interior)

The site is set up for easy use. The Main Subject Pages will allow you to go directly to the information you are looking for. Such as Dating a bottle, Type of bottle, Glassmaking techniques, Colors, Finishes and Closures, Body Seams, Bases, Fragment IDing of bottles, Glossary and an excellent Reference area that will get you to a great deal if information available in book form, internet sites and Periodical and Journal Articles.

I recently came across this website and have found it to be user friendly and full of wonderful and helpful information.

Check it out!
