So a while ago I relayed to you all the epic tale of my discovery of a bottle-burial in a good friends garden. It’s taken a while, but finally, here is the collection of complete bottles that I pulled out of the hole. I’ve tried my best to get them clean, using a variety of products including vinegar, bleach, washing up liquid and bottle cleaning beans, and although they’re not 100% and are scuffed here are there, I think they came out ok. ☺️

I just thought you’d like to see. 🥰😂

There are a few more items that I have put back together, but they’re not included.

Nice job, Emily.
Not much you can do about glass ageing over the years.
Good start to your collection.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Thank you. 🥰 I’ll have to re-home some though. ☹️

Lovely job with those Emily well done,
I was working in & had a few old bottles out the cellar of post box cottage at the crossroads up from you last week, before it's sold by the farm.
See you soon Emily.

A nice assortment, they look good. :thumbsup:
I must have a go at properly cleaning my three bucketfuls of old bottles sometime. Thought I would just try warm soapy water and a bottle brush first! :Thinking:

A few medicines like your ones from Oxford & Banbury, a Banbury flagon & a lovely big tall whiskey.

I like the blue ones. :thumbsup:
I was watching something on TV a while ago, not sure what show, but they used / built the coloured bottles in a wall - it looked really good with the sunlight cascading through it.
