    Very nice jars. I've sold a few of the jars with the wire bails on Ebay but they were the clear ones.

    Thanks to everybody for the interesting helpful info. I believe it's the first Fairmount bottle I have. I can see the raised ridges on the bottle identify it as a poison. I didn't realize they were...

    That is a nice looking bottle. I like the texture that filters the light. I don't have any more useful info to add, as others have already done a good job with that.

    Hello, welcome to the site! That is a nice bottle you have there. If it is from 1913-1914 it probably had some manganese in it which did made bottles turn a shade of purple in the sun. But they don't...

    Once you have let it soak in whatever substance you decide on using, put some rice into the bottle and shake it aggressively for about 5-10 minutes. Rice will get to almost every spot inside if you...

    Use USPS flat rate boxes whenever possible. They eliminate a lot of guesswork, stress, and headaches and you don't get hit with an unforeseen high cost to ship something.
