I can identify a number of those bottles and flasks, could do much better if I enlarged the pix. There is an Amber DR. WONSER'S and at least 2 LACOURS and that fish is very light in color. I agree Andy, there were some high powered collectors in Nevada, I'm pretty sure one in Fallon. The museum probably got a nice donation as you said. Virginia City, Goldfield, Tonapah and others gave up some fantastic stuff.There were five Wonsers aqua bitters bottles dug from an privy pit that was under an extension of the old Pipers opera house in Virginia city. Also a few Lacours bitters were found in Belmont back in the sixties. Those two bitters brands were blown in San Francisco and are very valuable, over ten grand apiece if in really good shape. There were many sophisticated collectors in Nevada including Bob ferraro, who had gathered the most complete, rare, Nevada collection of drug-pharmacy bottles of all time. Some of them are currently for sale on flea-bay, I picked up an 81/4 inch applied top aqua A,M. Cole apothecary from Virginia city 2 known, three weeks ago from that collection. So this little museum probably inherited a collection from somebody who had gathered those bottle over a pretty long period, would be my best guess. hopefully they know what they are worth......Andy
Never seen a museum that had such nice bottles.
