    Can anyone identify this bottle?

    I think you're right. It looks a little too big, but I immediately though Maggi seasoning bottle.

    Cuban Medicine Bottle

    Nice find! LDO might mean Licensed Dispensing Optician. I found a reference to a pharmacist named Oswaldo Morales in Santiago, Cuba in an 1895 US Dept of Agriculture record that might be your guy...

    Help with identification please

    Well, I tried searching all states that began with N for towns/cities that began with New DU and could only come up with New Durham, NH. Couldn't find any association with Pine A though. It's a really cool shard though. Good luck!

    Looking for info on this Domestic Specialty Co. Bottle

    Looks like CanadianBottles was right, they made shoe polish and other shoe related adhesives. Here's a link to an ad from 1898, where they proclaim that they are "The largest cement and blacking makers in Canada"...

    Help me identify this unique bottle

    That's a really odd one. I think it says Purity Exwaco??? The top makes it look like a ketchup, but the rest looks like a soda. I could not find anything for a Purity Exwaco ketchup anywhere. Strange one for sure!

    Approximate Date?

    I'm pretty sure BB stood for Berney-Bond Glass Co. Here in RI, the old milk bottles had the seal markings, and RI BB Seal meant Berney-Bond Glass Co.

    Red Beverages bottle

    Very nice bottle! I wasn't able to find anything on it either, nut you might want to try reaching out to this website. They seem to specialize in older soda bottles from East Texas, including some from Orange. He may know of it. Let us know if you get any info back...

    What is this bottle?

    Mullaney & Hayes were in business as a wine and liquor dealer at several different addresses in Indianapolis from 1873-1891: For anyone interested, there is a wealth of information in pre prohibition liquor companies in this...

    Very odd Hostetter’s bottle

    Thank you Nhpharm, that's about what I was thinking. It must be scarce, as I've been doing this hobby for 25 years and never seen one. Too bad it's not old and scarce, lol. Thanks again!

    Very odd Hostetter’s bottle

    Hello, I picked up a strange Dr. Hostetter’s bottle today that I think may be some sort of repro. It’s a dark amber stomach bitters bottle, but it reads “Dr. J. Hostetter’s Stomachic Bitters” instead of “Stomach”. The lip seems off as well, and on the base it an Owens Illinois mark which doesn’t...

    Mystery 517 Massachusetts Milk Bottle

    Yes, interesting indeed. It’s a little out of territory for my collection, but it was unique enough that I bought it just to try to figure out what is was. No luck so far though :(

    R. C. & E. New York ??

    Great job on the ID DavidW! Here's a bit more info on Reed, Carnick & Edwards from an 1873 ad. Definitely a medicine company:

    Mystery 517 Massachusetts Milk Bottle

    Thanks, CanadianBottles, I hadn't thought of that. Perhaps some sort of laboratory bottle, with 517 being a lot or control number? Very possible. Thanks!

    Dr. Patton?

    You've got a pretty rare bottle there, and quite valuable from what I understand. Should be from Rosebud, TX, right? Dr Patton was an early imitator of Dr. Pepper, here's a thread on this forum with some information about it. Excellent find, good luck with it...

    Mystery 517 Massachusetts Milk Bottle

    Hello, I picked up a mystery half pint Massachusetts milk bottle today, embossed only with the number 517 in the slug plate. I've never seen a milk bottle embossed with just a number like this, and my attempts to research this bottle have turned up nothing, so I was hoping someone else could...
