Hi EveryoneI have a chance to buy an aqua Paine's celery compound bottle for $15. I would like to know if this is a good price. The amber ones are common in the U.S and I have bought a few of these variants for $5 and probably wouldn't pay more than that for one. I've read from an older post on the forum that the aqua ones are common in Canada but not in the U.S. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Anthony

Paine's Canadian branch was based in Montreal and seems to have relied on aqua bottles. They are common in dug condition, but rare in mint with labels.

That is a reagent bottle. They have made them since the 1800's and are still being made for laboratory use.

I should qualify that. As long as it's BIM and not automatic bottle machine. The abm ones, while very hard to find, don't seem to have any real value.
