    HOUCK & DIETER BOTTLE (1881-1912) EL PASO TEXAS 8 1/4"

    NICE AMETHYST COLOR WITH LOTS OF BUBBLES. H&D CO. ON THE BOTTOM.

    RECENT PURCHASE FROM THE PATE SWAP MEET.

    For some reason the comment section won't let me input any replys. It's turning more purple the more I have it in the sun. Thanks for the love.

      I am sure that you know that your bottle was clear when it was manufactured.

      gotwire,
      I am sure you know all this, but I thought I would throw it out there for those who do not know.
      "Houck & Dieter began in 1881 in El Paso Texas and by 1904 expanded to Douglas Arizona Territory. In 1912 they merged with another bottling company and became known as the Houck & Dieter, Empire Bottling works and continued to operate until 1918 when the company closed."
      This particuler bottle was manufactured between 1891 & 1912.

      I love the bottles that have changed its color by the sun, after many many years.
      Your bottle is lovely violet.

      Here is some great information about my great grandfathers bottling works from which your bottle came. https://sha.org/bottle/pdffiles/ASchap4.pdf
