    I don't think so, I believe these had the unusual shape to warn people that they contained poison, so that it was harder to confuse them with something else.

    Nice find by the way! Poisons...

    Welcome to the forum! Are you looking to get an ID on it? In that case I'd post it in the "What is it? Pre-1900" section (or maybe After 1900?). If that is a lightning rod ball it's the best one...

    Wow, that crock is stunning! I don't think I've ever seen a design anywhere close to that on antique pottery before. It's so detailed!

    Could be aftershave. That seems to fit a bit more with the squirrel motif and makes more sense for the size of the bottle.

    That's a shame! Still cool to dig a mostly whole example of such a desired bottle. Does it have a date code on it? Looks like 1910s-20s era to me.

    Cool find! I don't remember ever seeing any soda bottles or cartons with centennial branding. The only other 1967 bottle-related items I can think of are those beer caps featuring images of Expo...

    Nice find! I love coming across obscure books on specific topics like that. I'm surprised to see that archaeologists in the 60s were even interested in pottery that was only 90 years old, I have a...

    That one shaped like a pistol is fantastic, I've never seen one of those before! I love the blues as well, these types of inks were common where I used to live in BC but I never saw any that were...

    That label is absolutely a fantasy. Apart from the lower half of the label being a bit anachronistic with the upper half (not to mention the idea of a bottle of snake venom being pretty suspect to...

    That's a beautiful pictorial milk! Possibly the best embossing I've ever seen on a milk bottle.

    A similar one recently sold on Ebay for $10+shipping, and another didn't sell for $30, so probably worth somewhere around $15 without the lip chip. I'm surprised to see them that low, I remember...

    Very nice find! The Owl Drug Company was a chain of pharmacies in the western United States and Canada who made all sorts of bottles over several decades, and all are quite collectible. Yours...

    I believe it was to hold the bottle in place when applying the label so that the two colours lined up perfectly. Not 100% certain on this though, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    These are referred to as boat inks. They're British and probably not as old as they look. I think (could be wrong) that these were still being manufactured this way into the 20th century. They...

    If the colour is a lot lighter in person then I think it's possible that the sun actually did turn it that colour, under specific circumstances. There were a lot of genuine deep purple bottles found...

    I agree that it looks like it's got some age to it. I don't know much about decorative glass from that era but that "16" etched into it looks very 19th century.

    Yeah that one definitely isn't Canadian, I've never seen anything from Canada marked in centilitres.

    Welcome to the forum! They certainly aren't that old, the design gives off an 80s or 90s feeling to me. It looks like there's a Chinese character on the bottom as well, so I'm guessing these were...

    Oh yeah that's a great find! I've still never found a Hutchinson bottle before.

    Yeah if that's a Canadian 8-bubble then it's a pretty solid deal no matter what city it's from. If it's from any city other than Toronto it's a fantastic deal, those don't show up often at all.

    I'm not seeing any pictures either, although I can tell from your description alone that it's a good one. It's definitely some sort of soda bottle and probably a fairly early one. I don't know about...

    Wow, I had no idea that one existed! Always surprised when I see a new BC ACL I hadn't previously known about.

    It is an odd colour for one of those beer bottles, might have been an imported beer.

    Oh wow yeah I didn't realize how big it was. I've never seen anything like that in use in Canada, I wish it had a paper label as well because I'd be really curious to see who was using it.
