    Any one know anything about this brand of old medicine bottle

    This is one of several old medicine bottles in the original box I have from my great grandfatherís old country store. Still standing with items. Iíve researched all over. Called several Savannah municipal offices and historical society in that area with no luck. Any help would be appreciated

    Here is a listing for Cos-Tal Laboratories from a 1938 Gazette of the United States Patent Office:

    Wow, that was fast. Goes to show itís the people you know 😉. I canít believe you found it. Especially when I asked so many different places and no one had a clue. Do you know if it was a well known brand and an abundance of bottles in box with bottle never opened? Iíd never heard of it but that doesnít mean a hill of beans.
    How do you keep the boxes from deteriorating? The one in this photo has an interesting folding insert that I hate to have fall completely apart. The foldout is in pretty good condition. Itís the boxes I am having problems with.

    Let me know if your great grandfathers old country store has any old beer cans in there. I'd be very Interested in those. THANKS, LEON.

    I donít remember seeing any but I havenít actually looked for one. Gobs of soda bottles, medicine bottles and all sorts of other items from late 1890ís, early 1900 to 1940 or so. Family has kept the building up and it is in fairly good shape but it has been used by my uncle as storage for unwanted items. Treasure hunt. Some things gone and distributed among a few family members. Iíve only been in it once since adult and that was last year after my uncles death. So many memories. I have the yellow sign in upper left of the photo here. Anyone know where I can ask a ďwhat is thisĒ type of question on another group site? I have several mule shoes that Iíd like to see if can be identified and an iron item.
