Hi, welcome.
They all look around the 1930's, the first a cosmetic type (hair, skin, aftershave, cologne etc.). The next two are food type, olives or something. The third is a medicine. WE-LI-KA was "Pure Sweet Spirit Nitre, U. S. P. Alcohol 90%"; (carton) "Packed by Witsell Bros. Mfg. Co., Memphis, Tenn."

I appreciate the reply cowseatmaize. Do you know the value of these WE-LI-KA bottles? Also I found these two types of ampoules this morning and they are all full of fluid The smaller ones on the left have a rod of some type suspended in the solution. I was curious if you or anyone else knew what they were. Thanks again

I would say the We-Li-Ka is the best find out of the ones you showed us. We-Li-Ka was a vanilla extract bottle. Here is a thread I did on Waw-Waw and We-Li-Ka bottles.

Do we know what the small ampoules are though? also we have found a few poison bottles attached below and several others I will try to take pictures of. Any ideas on the poison bottles?

About 20 years ago my cousin dug a few hundred of the ampoules on the right. He had one tested and it was morphine. They were found behind a vet's 1940's house place. Be careful with those.
