    Cleaned up probably $40. No real name for that form. Just a round squat ink. Not an easy David's to find.

    I have no direct knowledge but I've got to figure those numbers will vary tremendously depending on WHEN the bottle was made, decoration, etc.

    Could have been blown at any of 100 more more glass houses of the time. Very common. Most interesting if found with an interesting label.

    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.

    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?

    Form of bottle would put it late 1880s to as late as 1910, plus or minus.

    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...

    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...
