  Bottle Colors Page
Although color is one of the more obvious and relatively easy to describe attributes of a historic bottle, it is unfortunately of limited utility in classifying a bottle as to age or type.

Aqua bottles became uncommon after the 1920s when colorless glass largely replaced aqua as the color of choice for bottle users wishing their product to be visible to the buyer (Miller and McNichol 2002).
