Joining my collection today are...
(I know that none of these bottles are rare or valuable. I just enjoy looking at them and researching them)

Tablespoons - I know these are very common, but this is my first one. It is definitely post 1900s, but is that a pontil scar on its base? The base also has a large number 4 and A2 on it.

Mason's Wine Essence, Nottingham - The base does not have any markings.

Chameleon Oil - The bottle states that it 'relieves pain' and to 'shake the bottle thoroughly'. The base has 2135 on it.

Beetham's Glycerine & Cucumber - A not very PC product, claiming to give women "soft white skin"! The base has the markings 5536 and the letter J.

Hind's Honey and Almond Cream - The base states 'A.S Hinds Ltd.'

IZAL - The post 1900s bottle has the lid and screw top in situ. The base has (from top to bottom) REC, 8 and 1893 on it. It also still smells VERY strongly of the contents upon removing the lid!

Bottled by Jeyes - Again, a very common bottle. Personally, I just liked the 'dessert spoons' and 'table spoons' written down each side. The base has (from top to bottom) Q1191, 3 and C.T.G on it.

Now for the cleaning!

The last two color bottles are cool they look like poisons and the green one looks like it's got a pewter top cool

I believe IZAL (the green one) was a disinfectant. It definitely smells like it was! They also made toilet roll lol. I'd love to know if it is pewter, that would be very cool.

Jeyes (the amber one) was probably a similar product. I've heard of Jeyes Fluid before. I have 2 Jeyes bottles, but this one has the fun dessert/tablespoons detailing on it.

That's cool I've never seen or heard of that brand of disinfectant
