some recent bottles

Post by kenleyboy » Tue Apr 10, 2018 12:04 pm

I couldn't resist these local bottles that came up for auction in our local market and the ones that really appealed to me was the blue top ginger beer from Kings Lynn and the large size blue poison .It is hard to find or dig good bottles in this condition as decent bottle dumps are getting harder to find or gain access .
My regular tip has been well dug since the 80s but now and again you get lucky and the fun in digging and finding a decent bottle is worth the effort .
I have just recently found an earlier Victorian tip but with the unpredictable weather I have not yet managed to get on there but hopefully when the weather is a little kinder I can have a go .
For now though I have to satisfy myself with a few purchases which I dont generally do as i much prefer to dig and found my own bottle but the big blue poison was just too tempting .

Hello 'kenleyboy' ::g It's been many years since I was 'dump digging'! That's a cracking 'cobalt blue' poison shown there and I can see why you were tempted into buying it::g Stone 'penny Ink', Hamiltons (I think) and Gingers. All in all a really nice selection and a fine display.
Nicely done Sir ::g Regards ss47

Hi Lowland , yes you are correct , the lip is ground down . It is a big poison , 16 oz job . Some of the blues I have dug have the sickness but this is clean .
There was about 30 odd bottles in the crate , half of which were sick but these were the best pick of the bunch . Oddly there was a clean sauce bottle which reads "Grannies Delicious Sauce " , never seen one before as opposed to the millions of Daddies sauce bottles that seem to be on every dump .

ss47 ,thanks and yes a nice blue , dont get to dig many of these . Blue and Green poisons are my main interest but finding them in good dug condition is hard on the tips I am on . I paid pennies for the crate of bottles so it was nice to cherry pick the better ones .
Bottle digging is a young mans game now , I dont dig as much nowadays but every now and again I have a go but pay for it for a few days after !

Thats easy , I have the image burned into my brainbox . It is a dark blue ribbed round bottle and has the poison script going around the bottle at an angle . I cannot think of the manufacture and have only ever seen three of this type , one damaged one on fleabay , and two were dug on one of the you tube channels . If memory serves me well the digger was Big Foot Digger , a Scottish guy who has a really good channel for metal detecting and bottle digging . He dug one in mint condition , it was a beauty , so that is a bucket lister for me .

I will check out his stuff.
I think I know the poison you’re dreaming about ::g
There’s so many rare ones to pick from
Personally either an amber wasp waist
or a seaweed green submarine would do..
(Not sure those colours exist but u never know.
Was there not an early coffin type patent poison with Pontil went for mental money
Some years ago?
Think it was about circa 1860s.
Have found a couple of crescent poisons
A petrol blue and a tiny green one
:)

I did hear of an early type coffin poison going for big money but cannot remember how much it went for but no doubt a tidy sum .
Big foot digger has a nice easy going channel , no big ego just a straight forward pleasant watch and he does find some nice bottles .

I think it was on the cover of the benign blue coffin book
By Roy Morgan-
I’ve found a picture somebody’s got on Flickr
Only five ever found !-
At that point in time.
It’s gorgeous-has an embossed shield shape
With the patent number in.
I’d probably put my fork through it

Me too , put my fork through a couple of nice ones in the past !
I am hoping to get on this early tip in the next few weeks . Had a walk around and see a few decent bottles on the top and all the holes are back filled which is a decent thing to do , hence not much on top .Should be some blue poisons deep down somewhere , found a busted one in the grass so they are in there somewhere .

You’re right about back filling the holes
Nothing gets the locals backs up like a dog walker

Not much chance of dog walkers on this one more likely council workers who are fine as long as holes are filled .I got the heads up from another digger who put me onto this one but also warned me that any holes left open will cause future digging problems . If any holes are left open he says just fill em in even if they are not your holes , sound advice if you want to keep everyone sweet .
