    I thought I remembered the Dr. Virgil's labels as a fantasy label but a google search isn't turning anything up. it certainly has all the looks of a fairly old label.

    I'm not an English Ink collector, but it's always been my understanding that all those rough cracked lip British inks were generally known as penny inks. They were inexpensive and exported to about...

    Automatic bottle machine so made post 1906. I'd say that bottle style could be anywhere from the 1910s through the 1950s. When did the "black face" type figure fall out of style... 1960s?

    At first glance it looks a little like a pontil but the lip isn't right for a pontil. I think it's just a mold mark. Bottle would be around 1880 to 1900.

    Barring someone finding a cache of a particular bottle, I don't think any of the rarer bitters bottles have gone down in price, not even in this leaden economy. Good glass has been a good...

    Rickets (Ricketts?) was a major English glassmaker. Some of their bottles had their name embossed on the base. A three piece mold is just that, a bottle mold that was comprised of 3 pieces, a one...

    I don't have your evidence to support them being British, but nothing about the form speaks to me as American. Just not quite right. I think they show up commonly for sale on the east coast...

    Interesting. It DOES make aging these later BIM bottles more challenging. I guess I've been well indoctrinated into the "owens ABM = no more BIM". I've certainly seen stuff like perfumes, but...

    I've never seen a repro with a real iron pontil like that. It's absolutely real. I don't have the McKearin and Wilson at work, but I'd certainly put that neck finish in the west, Pittsburg, WV,...

    Nice clean one. This is probably one of the first bottles that just about every fledgling bottle collector either finds or owns. These were literally distributed worldwide at a time when there was...

    Interesting. I'd have said that a BIM bottle after WWI was a very rare critter, as WWI, as all wars do, pushed productivity and technology forward. Do you know of a confirmed post WWI BIM bottle...

    Most of these bottles that I see are pre-abm type manufacture so I wonder how many were made before the Gould...

    The bottle form is certainly from 1880s up into early 1900s.

    I've not seen beer put up in that bottle type before. I've mostly seen labeled spring waters.
