Hello again from North Carolina. I just wanted to share one of my favorites from my collection. This one came from my wife's great-uncle's house after he passed in 1972. He was 99 years old, and never threw anything away. I helped get some of his things ready for his estate sale, and was given a few things for helping. Naturally, I couldn't pass up any bottles! The sad thing is, that his nieces had already been there for two days and had hauled off two truckloads of "junk", and there is no telling what kinds of things were in it. A lot of it was old papers, etc., but even those may have been valuable.
Thankfully, this sits on my shelf today.

It is indeed sad when people who have no appreciation for such things clear out the "junk."
