OK, I got your attention.

I was wandering aimlessly on the web today and came across this (http://www.medicalantiques.com/medical/Apothecary_and_Drug_Kits.htm).

The site has some really great pics of antique medical kits that I am sure ant bottle collector would love to own.

Oh, and there are leech jars too. Go to the site main page for the link. It would be cool to find one of those.

Thanks for that link. Very cool medicine kits. Are the pictures dark, or is it just my computer? I clicked on the dental part while eating some lunch. Yikes. I can't stand anything with teeth! Still, a cool page.

Hi RedGinger,

I thought they were a little dark too, I was blaming it on my computer...

Some of those instruments are pretty gruesome, the tooth keys made me cringe too .[&:]

It would be pretty cool to have one of those med kits with all of the bottles. It would make a nice display in itself.

Hello again all you bottle bugs; If you go on eBay and find the seller xcellr8, (11245)
A big seller! You will find a man that usually has leach jars. He has a picker in Europe that really finds them. He also always has a some great great old books on early glass.
I have gotten several from him in the past.
