    RE: Use Phenix Plates - odd bottle

    Thanks for all the feedback. Cyberdigger - I was reading through the sites that Epackage attached and came across the following about the Scovill (Phenix Plates) "patent dreg bottle".... "it is a pouring bottle with ridges on the outside for convenience in handling, which also serves as graduates and has a broad hollow base which prevents the dregs (or settlings) from running out on the plate." According to the article the bottles held collodium and varnish. It sure sounds like the bottle.

    What is photo fluid? Is it that 80 proof stuff you guzzle for a while before you have an ounce of patience to be talked through someone's photo album?
    No, your kidding right? It's the 200 proof stuff you chugged in order to pass out for the 15 minutes of complete stillness.[:)]

    I do still have the bottle in my personal collection. I have been reluctant to part with it because it is the only one like it that I have seen.

    The fluid (collodium and varnish) in this bottle was used in the old tin type and glass slide picture developing process. Phenix Plates was a brand of glass slides. The shape of the bottle was designed to help during the process.
