    I'm guessing 1880s on these last two.

    I like that Wright Bros bottle, never seen that one before. Looks fairly early too, I'd guess more like 1870s on that one. Mixed bag indeed!

    I was surprised to see it complete. Most of the big stuff was broken. 1870s would be fine with me!

    That Wright Bros is a nice bottle. I found one that sold at a Heckler auction for $117, with original label. Here is a link to an 1879 article about a trade mark legal battle over the name "Pond Lily Wash". Apparently it was a toilet wash product. Nice find!

    Mrs. Winslow's looks great, nice embossing.

    So that's what the Wright Bros. were busy with before they got into flying! Sorry, I couldn't resist! That is a COOL bottle!

    Thx treasurekidd. I wish the soil here wasn't so corrosive to paper—would love to find even a partial label on a bottle.

    And thanks to warf rat and Glasshoppers! Yeah, the embossing on the Wright Bros is really nice. Here's the other embossed panel...
