    Three unmarked bottles. The green one I think is a three piece mold, the blue one I think has a very faint pontil mark on the bottom.

    I reloaded them.

    The first few pictures were uploaded from the image gallery on my phone. Then I figured out I could directly load the images to the site from the camera feature. Those are the ones that didn't work properly.

    A nice olive (?) green Hunyadi Janos Saxlehners Bitterquelle bottle with a twist.

    It was repurposed with an H W Warner Drug Co, Albany NY label.

    I like that Bitterquelle bottle with the druggist label, and it's a poison label too! I've got a couple like that too, I think it was a fairly common practice, though I think this is the first I've seen that was done for poison. They were usually more careful about that. All the other "repurposed" bottles with poison labels I've seen have been NOS labels recently stuck on the bottles, but yours looks legit.
    The ink bottle probably isn't repurposed, these were sold wholesale to all sorts of different companies and had the potter's name debossed into them. I don't think repurposing often happened for that kind of commercial product, I've only ever seen it done by local druggists and soda bottlers.

    I didn't even make the connection that it is a "poison" label. I didn't realize a caution label counted the same as a poison label. I did notice that the label says Wood Alcohol at the top. It's definitely legit, as these bottles were in the possession of my grandmother long before this type of fakery was a thing.

    Ok, that makes sense, which is why I questioned myself when I said repurposed.
