I normally don't collect bottles before 1860's with a few exceptions. This particular part of our history as a country has peaked my interest for awhile now. I do not know all the types of bottles produced during that era, (1920-1933) but the Spiders have captured my attention. The only way to tell for sure that a bottle was made during the Prohibition era is that the label will say "FOR MEDICINAL PURPOSES ONLY SALE OR USE FOR OTHER PURPOSES WILL CAUSE HEAVY PENIALTIES TO BE INFLICTED" These bottles were used before and after Prohibition. So the label is an important piece of that time frame. Here are some that I have collected, some just for the different Spiders and the placement of the Web. If you have any questions I will do my best to answer it correctly, according to what I have researched.
