Here are mine. I have thousands of bottles, but I always love tiny ones but these are the smallest I have.

From left to right... Asian immigrant oil bottle I found in NV at an old mine (commonly known as heroin bottles, although they rarely contained it). Next one is an Oxien Pill bottle I found in a creek in Russellville, Arkansas.

The middle one is a mystery as I know little to nothing about Chinese snuff bottles. I found this bottle in 2007 in demolition rubble in Beijing right next to the Forbidden City when they were moronically tearing down tons of Hutongs built in the 14th century-17th centuries for the 2008 Olympics. I am not sure on the date of it, could be 500 years old, could be 40 years old.

Next one is another bottle I know little about although it appears to be from the early 1900s. Found it another creek in Russellville, AR. It says from left to right, TM HA EZ LAB. I've researched it but come up with nothing as to the origins of this bottle.

Then finally a Sozodont, For the Teeth and Breath, that I found at a construction site in the east side of Cleveland a few months ago.

A few more small bottles I own.

The one on the far left is another Chinese immigrant bottle I found at the same mine in NV, probably from about 1890. And then again, another snuff bottle I found in rubble in a freshly torn down 1600's Hutong next to the Forbidden City in Beijing, not sure at all as to the date of it. Then a B. H. Bacon, Rochester NY, Otto's Cure I found here in Pittsburgh. Then a J.W. Deutsch Drug Co. bottle from Cleveland. Then on the far right a Boericke & Tafel, New York bottle from about 1890-1915.

You always present such great bottles, awesome! I like the small bottles as well but they are few and far between in my hunts and digs. I find a lot of cylindrical pill vials and slicks, but nothing as nice as these.
