I am in the process of cleaning, rearranging and adding to my collection of "LITTLES" as I call them. This is one of my very favorites, it just appeals to me. Great color, interesting wording, worth all of five bucks,,,, maybe. Thats what it's about these days.

Here is a neat one Jim,it is the smallest hand blown bottle I own. I think it has quite a bit of lead content also.

Don't care much for the bottle but the quarter is neat looking. [8D][:D][;)] Seriously, that is SUPER looking. I like everything about it, shape and crudeness especially. Thanks for sharing. The only use that makes sense to me is perfume.

How do you know it's Bug Bite Ointment, is it embossed? Can't tell for sure. I have one similar, with the extra long neck, with oriental characters on it. I like that one a lot also.

Yes Jim it embossed with Japanese Kanji just like yours. I was told they held a bug bite ointment from Rocky who dug a few of them in Hawaii...

Nice smalls! I think that first one would go for a good bit over $5 at auction!
