More photos from last year's show in Mobile.
We were only at 2/3 capacity in 2020 because of Covid, but this year we are full capacity with masks and social distancing.

Wish I could go. Too close to Easter though. Went to one in St. Louis. Get ready for a big walk in crowd. Pretty amazing attendance. Folks are ready to get out and do stuff.

JamDam,
I started digging bottles when I was 12 years old. By the time I was 15, I was making a list of all the medicine & drug store bottles from Mobile Alabama I could lay my hands on. That was over 40 years ago, and I am still collecting all categories of bottles from Mobile.
How tall is your cobalt Bienville Pharmacy? They come in several different sizes. Attached is a photo of some of my favorite Mobile bottles.

UncleBruce,

We are now sold out of tables, and I only hope the walk in crowds are as eager to get in the doors as the dealers are!

Hi Vinewood,
The bottle is 3 1/2” tall. Beautiful little example with no flaws and great patina. The base has some faint letters. I believe I can make out “USA” but there are some other faint letters as well. Great Mobile bottles in your picture.

These bottles in clear/aqua range in size from 3 1/2" all the way up to a 10 1/2" quart size. In cobalt though, I have only located the 3 1/2" size and a 5 1/4" size. The other sizes were probably never blown in cobalt, since all the cobalt ones I have seen have been one of those two sizes. Where did you locate yours?

And I forgot to say the base is embossed W.T. Co., USA

Thanks for that information! After a closer look, the embossing on the base is what you describe. I got this bottle from a friend from Iowa who wanted an Iowa medicine I had. I grew up in South MS and like regional bottles from the area plus this was a sweet example. I got the better end of that deal but we were both happy in the end.
