I just recently found a lot of bottles in my friend's buddy's shed. There is around 25 bottles: in different sizes and colors. These are what I found to be some of the more interesting bottles out of the group so far.

Some of these bottles have a toggle bolt with butterfly springs in the bottles, as they were a part of a piece of display art made. Trying to get them out is going to be fun.

Please let me know if you know any information about the bottles posted.

I would think the Whittemore is the best of the bunch. All are pretty common.

Yeah, got me thinking.
They do make those gripper tools but it could be as easy using a string. A magnet might even be all that's needed? Good luck

The Whittemore bottle is my favorite in this collection, old embosed apothecary bottles look neat especially when grouped together. :D

Does it say French Gloss on other side of Whittemores? If so I must of dug at least 20 of these over the Years, maybe more? I would rather take any other Bottle in the group then the Whittemore. To me similar to always digging those Fletchers or Pitchures Castoria Bottles. LEON.

Yeah, me too. A few inches of muriatic acid might be all that's needed. You just need to dissolve the hinge flanges/pins on the wings, or the spring, or the threads below the wings. Once deconstructed, the pieces simply should fall out of the bottle. Just another idea.
