This huge (555 pages), recently released work is one of the best "bottle books" there is for helping with the complicated subject of bottle identification.
This book includes - for the first time in print - a summary of this websites () bottle dating key as a chapter entitled "Summary Guide to Dating Bottles" by this author (pages 33 to 49).
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), an agency within the U. Department of the Interior, administers over 245 million surface acres of America's public lands, located primarily in 12 Western States (including Alaska).
Since there were hundreds of thousands of uniquely different bottles produced in the United States (and Canada**) between the late 18th century and the 1950s (Fike 1987), it is beyond the scope or even possibility of this site (or website or book) to provide specific details about more than just a tiny fraction of a percent of that variety of bottles.
Even then the bottles discussed in depth are so primarily to illustrate the presented information and concepts.
A listing or "map" of all the main subject pages and connected sub-pages found within this website is found at the following link Website Map.
Use that page to get a feel for the structure of this website and to access any of the other web pages.
If you are interested in identifying what a bottle was likely used for - i.e., what "type" of bottle it is (aka "typology") - the Bottle Typing/Diagnostic Shapes page and the extensive array of related sub-pages should be visited.
This very large complex of pages includes bottle type specific sub-pages with extensive style based dating information, including complete scans of 5 different early 20th century (1906 to 1933) bottle makers catalogs spanning the mouth-blown to machine-made bottle manufacturing era!
We have tried to define the distinction between these two classes of bottles from the perspective of the intent of and information found on this website.: This website was prepared based primarily on information about bottle manufacturing technologies, processes, and styles specific to the United States. Viewers are encouraged, for personal or classroom use, to download limited copies of posted material. Author reserves the right to update this information as appropriate.
Empirical observations indicate that Canadian-made bottles very often followed similar glassmaking technique and process chronologies making much of the information applicable to Canadian made bottles. If using this site for the dating or typing of a known or likely Canadian-made bottle, keep this in mind as the reliability of the information may be reduced.
It does not attempt to address the dating of "specialty" or imported bottles made during that time, though much of the information found on this website is pertinent to these items to varying degrees. For this website the distinction between the two categories is related to the varying time frames that different glass making techniques were used for for the two classes of bottles.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
