Any information is appreciated.
Found a property homestead dump in New Hampshire with various items... 5 days and still digging up stuff. Maybe 60 bottles so far? A lot of tall cylindrical bottle/jars. All I could find is a likeness... possibly Apothecary Homeopathic medicine bottles. Most stuff in this hole is believed to be between 1890 and 1914. Thanks all.

Someone really loved his cocktail onions or olives -- garnishes. That's the common use for these cylindrical bottles. The trove may represent many, many martinis. Have you found the gin bottles?

I'm very new at this, but I believe I have at least one gin bottle. Lots of liquor bottles mixed in with medicine and food jars. That would explain why it doesn't exactly come up with apothecary. I'll try to include the gin bottle.

At first I thought I found the supplies of the former town doctor, who's family moved in across the street. But it was confirmed that it wasn't after all.

FYI-Side note- The Flaccus Bros. made some desirable canning jars as well, including one with an embossment error. (If memory serves, I believe they put deer antlers on a cow.) If Flaccuss made it onto the shelves with the pickles, olives, and condiments, there's a good chance of finding a canning jar too. Good luck.

Beautiful glass caps! I'll be on the lookout for those as well!!
I don't think most of these had glass caps - I don't remember ever seeing one like that before and I've sure seen a lot of the pickle bottles. Those decorated ones are fairly uncommon compared to the more plain ones like you've found. But definitely worth keeping an eye out! I would never have imagined that a cap like that would go on a pickle bottle if I hadn't seen that photo.
