That's a shame, some of those would have been real beauties! Is the Turner Brothers pontilled? And that triangular one is really unusual, I wonder what it contained. There aren't many triangular American bottles out there.

You ain't jokin! Turner's isn't pontilled. I think I read somewhere the triangular one contained mustard or something similar. My buddy actually found a complete one at the same site. I love finding a cache of good bottles.

Doesn't look like mustard to me at all, at least not the sort of mustard we have today. It would have been really difficult to get it out of the bottle. Maybe capers, the colour is similar to a lot of European caper bottles but the neck is very thin for that.

Great color on the Wolfe's and that black Turner's would've brought a buck or two if it had been whole. My heart breaks for you!

Sorry it looks like it says Charles Gulden not Culden. I agree with it not being a good design to get out a sauce, but maybe they didn't know any better back then. Here is where I read the mustard info. https://www.bottlepickers.com/bottle_articles208.htm
