Here's one I think is fairly rare its a "Breinic Fronefield & co Cattle Liniment " bottle. It came out of the attic with the horse liniment and the Baltimore roundbottom. It is open pontil and screaming mint full of wavey whittle glass. I watched 2 sell on ebay one brought over $600 the other over $500 must be fairly rare. Anyone seen these before? Thanks for any help.

I just have to say. You have a really cool attic. You should just leave the rest up there and start a paid tour through your attic. I've heard of horse liniment but never cattle liniment. I can imagine that these were quite popular on cattle ranches and small farms in the 1800's. Awesome museum quality bottles. Did the house belong to a bottle digger from the past? Swizzle

The house belonged to a Dr who practiced from the Civil War up to the late 1800's. His grandson sold all his stuff out last year and I bought a lot of bottles etc from the house. Most of the bottles were Pontil era or up to late 1800's. I also got a lot of his paper stuff etc.
