This is a glass bottle dated 1924 that was found in the Sonora Desert in Arizona. I was in Fernandina Beach, FL and a shopkeeper had it in a display. She told me that she had found it where they were doing an excavation and that they figured it had been buried for 80+ years.

So what you see is the patina on the outside of the bottle....the primary color of the bottle was the green...it was such an amazing piece I asked her if I could take it outside in the sun to get some pictures of it (she really must have thought I was over the edge)...

I wish I could have set this up properly - tripod and a cool backdrop...or been able to put a pen light inside shining out...now that would have been really neat!!!

I got several other shots of this that I will post so you can see the many different colors and patterns on the bottle...I wish I had taken a picture of the whole bottle...thought of that later...sigh
