One Bottle of Beer in the Wall

Bottle

While opening up the wall between the kitchen and dining room fireplace I discovered this old amber beer bottle.  It’s corked, but unfortunately there’s nothing inside.  I did a search online and found some information on a website called Glass Bottle Marks.  It seems that it was manufactured by Reed & Company based in Massillon, Ohio.  Apparently they were only manufacturing these bottles from 1881-1904, so this one is at least 110 years old.  It probably made its way into the cavity I found it when the home was built way back in 1904.  It’s not a rare bottle, but it is a cool discovery!
