    Found these three today while digging a privy.

    All are blown in a mold and probably date from 1900-1915.Click image for larger version.

    Blue ones are always nice to find. unless it's a common bromo seltzer. Congrats, Leon.

    Funny thing is, I have literally never found a front-embossed bromo. I don't know how that bottle has been avoiding me ever since I started this hobby.

    Nice finds! Is that blue one a local druggist? It doesn't look like one but I also don't see many US bottles that say "Chemists", especially from small towns. It's got a very British look to it.

    The blue one is from the Keasbey and Mattison Co. They were located in the small town of Ambler, PA and their company was known for making the U.S.'s first asbestos textile plant. They even have a wikipedia page- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keasbe...ttison_Company

    I don't know how either. They are everywhere in PA and I have too many of them.

    Those blue rectangular bottles are definitely more rare to find.
