    Toronto embossed and etched bottles book ?

    $45 seems high for a damaged example. I think these originally sold for $50. There must be better ones floating around out there. Maple Leaf auctions was selling some off for $30 a couple years ago. You might have luck at the Toronto bottle show.

    Reid's London Ontario Jar

    After a little digging online, it looks like Reid's was a wholesaler of glass and crockery. Interesting. http://images.ourontario.ca/london/70147/data

    Reid's London Ontario Jar

    Is anyone familiar with this company from London Ontario? Maybe a grocer/general store?

    Oval bottle with stopper/dropper. Apothecary?

    The body of the bottle was about 4" long. Definitely smaller than the average torpedo, and the neck I think would be too narrow for a torpedo. the top is chipped but didn't' appear broken. It looked like it might have been ground and polished. The stopper/dropper was about the same length...

    Oval bottle with stopper/dropper. Apothecary?

    It was in an antique mall, so I couldn't speak with dealer to get more information.

    Oval bottle with stopper/dropper. Apothecary?

    I don't know - the two pieces seemed to match. Same color, texture, and iridescence.

    Oval bottle with stopper/dropper. Apothecary?

    I came across this unusual bottle the other day. It is roughly oval with a long glass stopper/dropper. It's about 4" long. Any ideas on place of origin, age, and purpose/use? Thanks.

    I have some. Attached are pics. "Barrel" ink with embossed British diamond registration mark. Burst top with notch out of neck. Three different Underwoods inks. One with backwards "N" Two early labelled inks. One burst top with notch out of neck. One smooth lip. Three generic cone inks...

    Confusing Crown Construction?

    Not sure what to make of the extra seams. But looking at the base, it appears BIM to me. I would expect to see an Owen's ring on a machine-made bottle of that age.

    Thanks for the comments. I think it is authentic.

    Old adversting sign for Vegetine the Great Blood Purifier

    Picked this old paper Vegetine sign up from a flea market. Looks like it was pasted to the wall of a building (pharmacy or general store, perhaps?) and someone cut out around it to make this great plaque. Amazing that it has survived.

    Found This Hutch In My Local Antique Store..HELP!

    Ted, I don't really care about spelling or grammar in this type of forum. My point was that if you're going to criticize someone for making a spelling mistake, then perhaps check your own spelling.

    Found This Hutch In My Local Antique Store..HELP!

    In another thread? If so, then the comment is out of context here and seems petty and condescending. And "quickly" is spelled wrong.

    Pontilled free-blown two-chambered bottle/cruet

    Thanks for your thoughts, Jim. I agree it has a modern appearance, which made me second guess myself, but I found this reference, which closely resembles my bottle...

    Pontilled free-blown two-chambered bottle/cruet

    Couldn't resist picking this one up at the local antique market. Had a lot of nasty residue, but cleaned up nicely. I believe it is early-mid 1800's, but just wondering if this style was ever reproduced.

    Real or Fake? Dr Pepper bottle with Paper Label.

    I believe Grafs bottled Dr. Pepper so it's probably real.

    Ontario bottles

    They're both cool bottles, but fairly common. Worth about $10 each. Both Talyor and Robertson were around for a long time, so many of their bottles are quite prolific.
