    7 Boxes Full

    Mostly apothecary jars, quarts to one lone half gallon with reverse painted labels, some commons, a poison or two and a Zebra decanter. Crazy find totally unexpected. Some friends were cleaning out the barn and gave me a call, remembered I collect bottles. We went thru the boxes, settled on a price and off I went.
    I post the poison, still has the label, on the poison thread and there are three older apothecary jars, two ceramic and one milk glass on the pre 1900 thread. I think the milk glass is fairly old and the jars may be French, looking for info on these. Couple of pics for you.
    Thanks for looking, Mark

    Paper labels are the bomb.

    I dunno, Creek Walker and SunRunner, I really like the Spirit Gum. LOL.

    In all actuality, they're all wonderful.

    As soon as the weekend gets here, I plan on pulling out all the apothecary's and posting a group photo. There are 61 total in the lot I bought, the rest were what I previously posted and some commons.
