View Full Version : Medicine Bottles Question

12-20-2012, 06:03 PM
A company is currently excavating an old building in my town. The building was erected in 1904 and was used primarily as a doctor's office and drug store for nearly 60 years. Under the floorboards the workers found a ton of old bottles! Two in particular peaked my interest: Laxo: takes the place of calomel and Dr. Tichenor's antiseptic. Both bottles were cork tops. The Dr. Tichenors is 4 3/4 inches tall and the Laxo is 6 inches tall. Does anyone know the rarity of these bottles or if they are valuable? Thanks.

Dr Tichnors is very common, especially in Louisiana, I don't know about Laxo.

The Dr. T is still around and my father-in-law swears by it. He uses it for sunburns and mouthwash.

I have a Laxo bottle. I'm from New England, so I don't know a whole lot about it, but I'd say it's semi-common. I'd save them!
