Nash and Roue, James ready ,Thomas Nash and Simeon Jones. Saint John bottles.
Those are some really nice bottles! I didn't know that internal thread stoppers were ever used in the Maritimes. Is that one on the left a round bottom bottle? I didn't know of there being any embossed round bottom bottles used in Canada at all.
Yeah the one on the left is a round bottom Nash and Roue from Saint John NB.

Yeah we don't get a lot around here either. That's one area of Canadian collecting I know almost nothing about.
