    If I hadn't spent a crapton of money on Etsy last night I'd buy some of them for more than what a collector will say they are worth. They are lovely and honestly worth what someone is willing to pay....

  7. RE: Small brown bottle with 3 lug closure. Help please.

    I had to go look to see the name because I forgot it but his shop is called bottlessoldcheap. I has read a couple people here say they throw bottles back and thought, "they should sell them on...
  8. RE: Small brown bottle with 3 lug closure. Help please.

    Well yes, pontil would be better but I hoped I was at least clever enough to know all the ones that I have that are NOT pontil :P I looked for 50's and 60s bottles that matched today but no luck. I...

    The closest I found shape wise yesterday was Bell-Ans bottles but all I saw were embossed and didn't have the same lug tops. They are similar in being brown and squat little bottles...

  11. RE: Small brown bottle with 3 lug closure. Help please.

    I think these must be someones medical supply thing from maybe a decade or more? Hope to heck they didn't need that much Merthiolate or what-not in one year:P
  14. RE: Small brown bottle with 3 lug closure. Help please.

  16. RE: No luck finding this one.."Gets it' inscribed on bottom?

  18. Small brown bottle with 3 lug closure. Help please.

    I think this has to be some common product because I took 11 out of the same dig area so far but I can't find the use of it. I guess iodine or Merthiolate... Does anyone know what the heck it is? Any...
