    Poisons with original contents

    Yesterday I went to an antique shop and found these two poisons for a few dollars a piece. Honestly I saw the word poison, saw the low price and didn't even think about what was inside. This is a Canadian Tincture of Iodine poison from the 40s or 50s (?). The label is in poor shape, but...

    Furst-Mcness co. Freeport Illinois bottle

    Actually, I just dug one like that from a dump site that dated to 1910-1935. Yours appears to be in that date range of late 1920s, early 1930s. Furst McNess made cooking extracts at the time.

    I am looking to buy some "beginner" poison bottles, nothing crazy. :) I don't want any Sharpe and Dohme bottles, unless they are labeled. What I'd LOVE to have, is one of those amber Tinct. of Iodine bottles with the skull and crossbones. Any amber, cobalt blue or green poison bottle will do...

    Lots of bottles for sale!

    The big jar one, or the small med? The small med is a Sharpe and Dohme Poison, and I'd let it go for $25. The Bromo Seltzer is the harder to find Large size. I paid $45 for it a few years ago, but I'd let it go for $30.

    My first poison!

    No, it's because of the ribbed side. It was an easy way for folks to be able to tell it was hazardous in poor lighting or for those who were illiterate back in the day. The color is a great indicator too.

    My first poison!

    I found this 1oz. ribbed bottle last week in a farmhouse dump in Pennsylvania. (You'll see more of my finds scattered elsewhere in the next few days or so) I was mostly finding small, unenbossed medicine bottles, but then this fell out of a shovel full of dirt I was tossing aside and took me by...

    Wellcome Chemical !

    Are these jars considered poisons? I found a biggun' a few days ago in pretty good condition. My mother took it hostage as a flower vase. :D

    Ky Meds

    Maysville is a short 20 minute drive from where I live. That's an awesome bottle! Maysville had some gems.

    Lots of bottles for sale!

    A lion. It's in near mint condition, but there is a small chip on the lip. I bought it for $50, so I'd be glad to sell it for that.

    Lots of bottles for sale!

    I need to off-load a lot of my bottles, so here are several that I want to sell. Either pick out which bottle you like and I could offer up a price, or you could offer up a price for it. I accept checks and paypal, or military collectibles as payment. More bottle coming soon.

    Civil war opium bottle.

    I've been meaning to buy one of his bottles for a while now, but I keep using the money for others things from Gettysburg, etc. Great piece, I love the color!

    Cook insulators.

    I've only ever found one, and I think it's more modern than what I'd like.
