Over the past few weekends I have found and bought quite a few groups of bottles. Here are some of my favorite ones; any info such as value, rarity, and especially history is appreciated! (Some of these I am selling, PM if interested). 1. Devil's Island Endurance Gin. Thought it had an interesting name, has a crack on the base. 2. "A Big Hit" Weiss_Eichold Liquor Co. Mobile, ALA. Also thought this one had a cool title. Small crack in lip. I'm guessing it would have had a pewter/metal cap and possibly a paper label on the reverse side. Finish appears to be tooled?

3. "Original Ylegitima"? Agua De Florida, H.K & F.B. Thurber & Co. New York. Is anyone a Florida Water expert? I could not find this one on the web, I know there are quite a few different Florida Water colognes. Small fractures on base, came after I cleaned it [:mad:]. Has iridescent staining. 4. Lime Cola Quitman, GA Soda, large chip off base, several dings. I have never seen this style of Lime Cola?

5. Forrest Green, Dark Citron, 7up Green, or Lime Olive? [:D] Not sure what to call the color of this 1890's Pharmacy bottle, has a ground lip and tooled neck. Bottle is heavy with whittle, glass has a sick texture of wavy whittle lines. Huge bubble and what looks like a MOLD ERROR? Not sure what to call it, but has a thin curved line inside the glass, almost like half of an oval. Where is RED? He would be able to tell me. Gently rinsed the bottle with soap and water and now there are spots of iridescence [:mad:]. Bottle is in great shape besides being covered in rainbow spots! H.92 embossed on the base. I would really like to know if the bottle has a mold error, I attempted to take pictures of it below.

6. Beehive Honey Jar? Has a place for a label. Ground lip that has a small chip. 7. Of course I had to pick up the famous "7 Sutherland Sisters Hair Grower" when I saw it. The embossing was pretty neat. Very small potstone is embedded in glass. Bottle appears to be mint except for hazing.

8. Ramon's Nerve & Bone Oil, Brown MFG. Co. Proprietors, Greenville, Tenn & New York City, NY. Needs to be cleaned. I think this one may have some type of error, as bottle caves in near the base on the reverse side Almost like it go melted in one area. 9. Chamberlain's Pain-Balm, Des Moines, IA. In good shape, light hazing. 10. "Baby Ease" bottle. Never seen this one, something similar to Mrs. Winslow's? Needs to be cleaned, has quite a bit of iridescence and hazing.

I like that lime green one, beautiful and colorful. The Ramon has several variations , and I have a couple of the Greenville ones without New Your.
