Bertrand Bottles. a Study of 19th-Century Glass and Ceramic Analysis

Author(s): Ronald R. Switzer

Year: 1974


Once in a very great while a few historic artifacts are found which contribute significantly to our knowledge of a particular period. Rarer still is the find of a 19th-Century steamboat containing a cargo composed of thousands of pounds of artifacts of infinite variety. However, the relative rarity of these artifacts is overshadowed to a considerable degree by what can be translated from their analysis about the economy, technology, and life of contemporaries who lost them in an unpredictable wreck more than 100 years ago.
