    tumbling small bottles

    It mostly depends on the size of the tubing yu are using. I would think that a 2 1/2 inch lexan tube would work just fine with your bottles, also use finely cut copper wire or shot for the cleaning medium. I have used a 3 inch tube, but it is a little big. I don't have many small bottles, so I...

    Suncook NH pharmacist bottle with a BEAVER

    That's pretty exciting if they all have beavers, the one I saw must have been a sample for one of their products, as it was too small for a beaver to fit on the bottle. in fact it would be right up botlguys alley, for smalls QUOTE=nhpharm;705496]It sure does. All of the examples I have seen...

    Can anyone tell me what product was in this bottle and teach me about how it was made

    Could be Whitney glassworks, and it could be just about any glassworks, as shoe polish was a common product and all the glasshouses made polish bottles at one time or another. Its just to unknowable to make a call. No I think the extra thick glass is just an anomally that happened during the...

    Dr. Spivey's Asthma Cure in and with original packaging and ad booklet....

    No, I bought out a collector from Ohio a couple years ago, and the Spivey cure was with the bitters bottles that I bought from him. It was a pleasant surprise, as I happen to collect cures as well as bitters and S.F. meds and California sodas

    Newfoundland harbours littered with trash and bottles

    I agree, but was just saying that nature isn't helping either. we all need to do a much better job disposing of our trash, in our area the trash company offers a free pickup day of your choosing each year, and will pick up everything but oil, which you can take to them any time. So people in my...

    Universal Pain Killer, Pictorial Label, Pontil Bottle

    Hi Bear, nice bottles!! I really love the old ones like these. I have figured that most label missing parts, especially the ones not buried, have to have been without sufficient glue on the label backing, and in some cases just fell off because of no glue, and a disturbance of somekind, maybe...

    Can anyone give info on Zoa-Phora??

    about 1890-1914 I know that is a span of years, but it is impossible to pin it down closer, unless it turns purple, which it might, then it is after 1910 and up til the end of WW-1 or a few yrs after.
