I am sure all diggers like me who are in the frozen areas of North American are suffering withdrawal from lack of digging. So to pass the wait put your thinking caps on and tell us with a picture what is your favorite " named ''bottle, it does not have to be your ultimate favorite or most expensive, just a bottle with your favorite name with or without a label.
I have 2 favorites, one Canadian, the other American. The 1st one is a bottle made in Nova Scotia, the company was based out of Halifax, it is Eager's Wine of Rennet, the American is Eayrs' Cydonian Balm for the Hair , Albert H. Eayrs, Jamican Plain , Mass.

I've always liked the Carter's 'Extract of Smartweed'

http://www.diggerdirect.com/pics/carters.jpg

but the Ebeneezer A Pearl's 'Tincture of Life' is a close second.

and from Canada the Bradley's 'Success Compound'

Paterson's costliest bottle, A.A Snyder's Indian Hair Restorer... Does it only work on the scalps of Native Americans?!?!?!?

I also really liked this one

even though its a repro, because A Lancaster is my maiden name. Unfortunately it got broken from my husband using it as a change jar!

Interesting idea well there is nothing like have your own name on bottles so i am going to say Nelson's Liniment or S. Ledgard Nelson Hotel Armley with inside treads

Sorry, I don't have pictures as I sold my examples but my favorites as far as "Names" go is: OLD SACHEM BITTERS AND WIGWAM TONIC & ORIGINAL POCHAHONTAS BITTERS.

As my signature used to include, I collect oddly worded bottles also.

I don't collect them, since they aren't my specialty, but I've always loved the irony of soda water bottles from Samuel Belch of Belleville, Ontario (Canada West). Bottle pic courtesy of: http://www.sentex.net/~morris/soda_bottles.htm

That is super! perhaps the origin of the term?! Gotta love it. [:)]


Dr. Perry's Last Chance

Another terrific bottle!

These cool named bottles & jugs could make a sub category all on their own, & what a display!

But my favorite medicine name has to be this 'Renear's Tonic for Wind Dyspepsia'. Wind dyspepsia? A genteel word for flatulence, I suspect. They could have just called it 'Renear's Farting Cure', but it probably wouldn't have sold well. I don't think it sold well anyway, I haven't seen any more of these, and this one's damaged[:@]. Maybe there was too much gas pressure in the bottle....

Neat Thread, I have a lot of favored glass items, but when it comes to my favorite glass bottle, I have to admit that it iw a Sauce Bottle that is square and has a plain bursted off blowpipe top. It has a slightly tapered three inch neck with a formed ring on it about one inch down on it. It has three sunken panels with one that is flat. The bottom has a recessed round center with a reverse "/ 2 " in it. The embossed panels say; "/ DADDIES " "/ FAVOURITE " "/ SAUCE ".
I can't even look at it without smiling. RED Matthews
