View Full Version : Milk Glass Patent Meds?

07-11-2009, 12:13 AM
Hi all,
I have been collecting patent med bottles for about two years now. I do not allow myself much of a bottle budget, the rest of life is far too expensive, so I have done up my collection slowly and inexpensively. I was looking at my display this evening and realized that I have no milk glass meds. Then I began to wonder if many exist. Seems to me I have seen a local druggist or two and some German bitters bottles.

Are there any bimal milk glass meds? If so, are any of them common enough to shoot for on a budget?

Any advice appreciated,

You will note that the majority of the products were skin care or hair bottles.
I think the point of using milk glass was to make a fancier container fitting a ladies toilet.
Also for skin products the milk glass may have given an impression of purity.
