    20 sided Food Bottle?

    I suppose, to some extent, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have gotten the most pleasure showing some of these bottles (1930s-1950s) to my wife's grandparents (in their 90s). The land I'm finding them on was the "Home Place" of my wife's grandmother. It's been really cool being able to...

    Thanks, guys. I'm not really expecting to find much of value, but I've had fun researching what some of these bottles were used for... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Small glass vial with cork

    1940s fits with the rest of the bottles I'm finding. Plus, it definitely looks machine made. It's one of the coolest ones I've found here. I wondered if it was used for something small, like nitroglycerin, or something of that sort? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Help with bottle ID (lowercase "a" makers mark)

    Could be... I've found Fitch's & Vitalis tonic bottles in the same area. This is all New to me. I don't think I've found anything of monetary value, but learning about how the tenant farmers lived in the 30s - 50s has been fun and enlightening. I'm sure I'll have many more questions, as I have...

    Dug this bottle from my property. Other bottles dug from same area date 1930s-1950s. Dimensions are 8 in high, 2 in deep, 3 in wide. The only markings are what appears to be a lowercase "a" at top and the number 87 at bottom. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Old drug store items never opened

    Nice! My wife and I own a small "Mom & Pop" pharmacy in Eastern NC and have a display of older medicine bottles, scales, medical devices, etc. We are constantly adding to it. Our customers love it too. We often have people contribute something they just had lying around the house. No matter how...

    I need an opinion on this one

    I was wondering if any of you had made any progress in finding information on this bottle. I recently found one similar to it in a 1930s-1950s trash pile that I recently discovered on my property. I'm curious what is the purpose of the raised bumps on the flat or concave side of the bottle? I'm...

    Eye drop / Ear drop bottle ("P" in pennant marking)

    Hello all. I am new to this forum. I recently dug up several hundred old bottles (1930s-1940s) on my property, which used to be home to tennant farmers. One that really has me puzzled is a small, green medicine dropper (no top) that has a shape that is difficult to describe and has 2 raised...
