Hello. I'm new to the forum and bottle collecting. These were found in a pit with fifteen USA Hospital Department bottles and other bottles. The big object is eight inches across, three and three-quarter inches tall. I assume it is pottery. Note the hole in the side and blue decorations. The black glass is eight and three-quarter inches tall, two and three-quarter inch base, pontil with a tit in the middle, no embossment. The small one says "E. R. Squibb", five inches tall, two inch base. Any help would be greatfully appreciated. Value? Thank you so much. Richard.
