I think the one with the spout on the bottom is either an early piece of IV equipment or a laboratory bottle used for who knows what kindsa laboratory work.. the other one with the handle, I'm guessing, is mid 20th century art glass, possibly Mexican..

The reason I think it's newer is because I can't see it having a practical purpose. It looks like a purely decorative piece.. also, if you look at the bottom, there's not much base wear, not always there on all originals but for older pieces it is expected.. then there's the handle.. it does not look balanced with the 'golden ratio' seen on early pieces.
Other than that, your guess is as good as mine.. let's see what the real experts say.. [8|]

Thanks I truly appreciateit. I love the old bottles and I want to make sure I don't get newer pieces that just look like they are old. My daughter purchased a house in Gillsburg, Ms. that was built in the 1800's, we are trying to find where the outhouse or dump site was to start digging. If anyone knows where there is dig sites down south I would love to know. Again thanks for all the info.

Of course I do! [:)]

I prefer Jaegermeister and Unicum, but Kahlua and Bailey's are quite good as well.. my spouse likes the fruity ones but when we can only buy one bottle and have to share it, we get the Bailey's..
