That`s it for the Bixby bottles, I`ll end this with a few rare Bixby pieces that are possibly unique, or at least very interesting! This isn`t the place for all the advertising, wooden boxes, and trade cards, but if anyone is interested, they can send me a PM. Here we have a tin shoe polish bottle with the same applicator as the early, tall style bottles. The top is concave so any excess would run back into the can. The label is for "Bixby`s Royal Polish" with patent dates of Nov. 14, 82; March 6, 83; and Aug. 16, 87 on the label. I never even knew this can existed until a club member brought it in to our local bottle club meeting this past winter. This just proves that no matter how long you specialize in something, you`ll never see everything!
