Cleaned up Purex Bottle

I have been slowly cleaning up the bottles I found in the garage. I don't know the exact age of this one but, although it looks like the average brown glass, it has a beautifully rich quality to the color. It doesn't completely come across in this picture but especially compared to a uniformly colored modern brown beer bottle, the old bottles vary from a more yellowish honey color where the glass is thinner to a deeper reddish brown where the glass is thick around the neck and bottom.

Although we don't really use bleach anymore, I wish it still came in bottles like these.


  1. Amazing. We've found a lot of old milk bottles buried in our yard but nothing like that!

  2. That is so cool! We went up hiking to Van Patten Lake, in Oregon, and found one almost exactly like this just sitting by a tree! We just left it there, unfortunately, so were glad someone has some pics of one! Thanks!
