I like that flavouring extract bottle, never seen a graduated druggist bottle like that with extract embossing before. And those ceramic soy sauce bottles are always nice to find as well.
im so new to this that the rare ones look the same as the common ones to me. Now that you brought it up, all of the other druggist bottles I’ve found don’t either.

So the rainbow coloring is new to me. All the bottles I’ve found have never looked like that.
I don't know if bottle collectors generally like it or not but I find it really appealing. Somewhat relates to coin collecting in that some coins can become rainbow colored and can sell for hundreds and sometimes thousands more just for color. I doubt the range is that much if anything at all for bottles though.

Thanks. I’m starting to think value is more about someone’s option than how rare it is. I don’t plan on selling anything just because of what it’s worth, but I have started trying to figure out what I will keep and what I’m going to get rid of. It gets complicated when you start trying to rate each bottle.

Brown Soyu pots come up a lot in Hawaii nice.
They are common in California as well. What is cool about them is that though they were mass produced, they were hand finished and each one is a bit different
