What part of the country do you live in?
Can you post any photos or give some good descriptions of the bottles?

I was mostly asking where you are from to see if there are bottles clubs or collectors near you who could help you determine what you have.

I would recommend making a new thread in this section and title it something like "New collector looking for help from other British/european collectors". Be patient , not everyone reads the forum every day.
Work on trying to get photos of your items. That is one of the best ways to get responses in the forum.
