I was told that poison bottles were heavily embossed to help distinguish them from, perhaps cough medicine that a person was reaching for in the middle of the night. You have to remember that people couldn't just switch on the electric lamp as many homes did not have electricity.

Other than the obvious, is ther any way to determine what was originally in this type of bottle? As-in: certain poisons were only contained in a specific type of bottle?
