MoCo Maryland has like... No antique bottle collectors, which means there's so little that shows up at yard sales, antique stores, thrifts, etc. When they do show up however, it's like nobody wants them? It's wild, I found these three at a SECOND day sale and priced way undervalue for what they are, I'm beyond excited. The big one in the crate is a Holland Gin (likely imported) with stamping from J. L. Davis Sons NY. It is smooth base and probably 1880's-1910's; can't find anything on the company unfortunately. My heart skipped a beat when I picked up the teal cylinder and saw it had a huge open pontil on it, I couldn't believe it. I'm guessing the mini oval demijohn is French and it's super crude with a crooked neck and wobbly base.
