I'm new here, so hi everybody!

I recently acquired these 2 bottles. I'm told that they are miniature liquor/alcohol bottles from c1890. Does anyone have any ideas as to what they may have held? They appear to be hand-blown. The amber one especially has a lot of bubbles. They are also both slightly slanted. Any info would be gratefully received.

Welcome to the forum! The amber one looks like a Grand Mariner bottle, not sure how far back they were using that style of bottle though.

Thank you. Is that a whiskey? (Sorry tee-totaler here!)

Haha :D

I've looked into Grand Marnier @CanadianBottles and definitely I think you're right.

I still wonder what was in the green one?
