    Can someone identify this?

    I assumed that's what it was, but you are the first to confirm it. Thanks!

    Here is a pic of one similar to the Key West bottle with the Matthews top. I think it's different from but similar to your blob neck bottle. Here is the patent for this bottle.

    That neck bulge is similar to a D. T. Sweeny bottle from Key West, FL that is embossed on the bottom "Made By / John Matthews N.Y. / Pat / June 11 / 1872." I was trying to find a pic of one to show you but am unable to.

    I think the girl looks more like she's doing a curtsy while holding her dress.

    Vapo-Cresolene Co Aqua poison bottle

    I've seen these bottles in three sizes, this being the largest. My son has the two smaller sizes, but the largest is more difficult to find.

    That Friedman hutch is marginally common as far as Key West hutches. However, Key West hutches are usually in pretty high demand.

    Wine or water bottles?

    Looks like the impression on it says Apollinaris in the circular portion. I might be reading it wrong.

    Late Summer Dig & Greer's Pharmacy

    While there is a Florida Druggists bottle book, few people have ever seen it, and it will never be published again because the purchaser of the copyright wants to keep the existence of some of the bottles a secret.There is also a book of pre-1920 druggists that was compiled and written in the...

    Leadville Colorado Mining Bottles

    I would have guessed aqua regia, a mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acid. Edit: Ignore this... I was thinking assaying for some reason, and not smelting. [8|]

    Pepsi "Test Bottle"

    I would guess a production bottle from outside the US. Perhaps England?

    Large collection of antique bottles dug up in my backyard!!

    That's a great haul to find in your yard. I think most of them are too new to be really collectible, though. Dig deeper and see if there is older stuff further down! Keep us informed of whatever else you find.

    Post-Prohibition Whiskeys

    Well, I passed the information of the interested party on to the broker, who in turn said she would pass it to the owner.By providing a possible buyer it assures that the broker will call me more often when bottles come available.

    Seltzer bottle parts

    I asked about the plastic straws, because the original glass straws varied in length. He said the ones they make work in their bottles and rarely need to be cut, but the plastic is hard and would split if you tried to cut them. I have a few of the glass ones remaining, but am going to see how...
