I have an old #33 amber brown quart bottle made my the Hood Chemical Co. Inc. out of Pittsburgh PA. I cant find out anything about the bottle I have tried to find one like it online and have found some #33 bottles but none made by Hood. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate the advice.Blessings,Karen

I started digging up bottles on our farm this year in some old trash piles and privies on the place. Curious about the history behind them, etc. I googled "old bottles" or something like that and came across some forums and websites devoted to old bottles. For the life of me I cannot remember the name of the forum I joined; it's been awhile since I did; but as a member I was balr to post pics. and get info from people who know their bottles. Hope this helps!

I had gotten a book out at the library once that listed prices for Ball canning jars and others - I do remember the Hood name. But I cannot remember the name of the book.

Here is a list of books for bottle collectors: http://www.antiquebottles.com/books.html Maybe you can find one at your local library.

My dh was working at an old building in downtown Chicago and tore out a wall. Inside was an old whiskey bottle. The cork is inside the bottle. We wonder about that bottle - if it has any value. (also wonder about the person - they were obviously drinking on the job and stuck the bottle in the wall before they plastered the wall up!)

Did you find out anything about the bottle? I have the same bottle - I found it in the woods in an old trash pile on our farm. I havent been able to find anything about it on the internet except here. I cant even find anything about a company by that name in PA.

My folks found one that was oblong back when they first purchased their victorian house. It doesn't have a base to stand up like the base of a regualr bottle. I forget what it was used for.

It was unearthed in the back yard.

you have to look hard, but there are some great antique bottles at flea markets.

No Hilary, I dont think I ever found out about the bottle and we had a house fire shortly after that post and so it is now gone. But the web site that Amanda put on does look interesting. Maybe something will be on it. Let me know if you find out anything.
Anna, yes I have found many old bottles at flea markets but like you said some are hard to find. I have a few I plan to list on my etsy soon that I found here and there. So many are chipped and broken its hard to find good ones,but with determination you can find them. I'd love the see that one you folks found it sounds like a good one for sure! Blessings, Karen
