"OLD WEST BOTTLES"
ANTIQUE BOTTLE COLLECTING IN THE WEST
Welcome to our website
Thanks for checking out "Old West Bottles" website. Our site is dedicated to 19th century Western bottle history and the sharing of our hobby & information. Take a step back in time to the Old West and explore the past with articles, pictures, digging stories & Western bottles.
With an avid interest in early California history in addition to collecting Western bottles, I've traveled throughout much of the West since the 1960s seeking them. Their history including; where they were made, products they contained, who sold & used them and where they ended up tell a facinating story . Many that were blown in SanFrancisco in the 19th century are some of the most beautiful unique glass containers ever produced.
Our goal is to make this site fun and informative. It is unique in the way that it focuses mainly on Western bottles of all kinds. We will continue adding new material as time allows and welcome any comments you may have.
