With the dawn of the 20th century, mass production of blue bottles for Bromo-Seltzer – a common drug marketed as a remedy for headaches, stomach upset and general malaise – began. Packaged in an intensely colored cobalt bottle, the medicine was first produced in 1888, and the company used their distinctive cobalt glass bottles until the 1950s. Vicks Vapor Rub and Noxema also used bright cobalt blue glass jars into the 1950s.  This is what we find on our Prince Edward Island Beaches and blue is the most popular colour and gets picked up really fast so you have to ge quick to find some.

We’re not the first generation to love cobalt blue glass. Ancient Egyptians and Mesopotamians were crazy about the color too… King Tut’s gold death mask has inlaid cobalt glass, and Danish researchers have found cobalt blue beads in a wealthy woman’s grave from the period that were made in the same workshop as Tut’s glass!
