Welcome to the forum! The first is a modern sparkling wine bottle, I think that design was introduced around the 60s or so and is still used today. It was designed to be able to take a standard bottle cap although those are almost never actually used since it would mean you had to drink the whole bottle at once or find something else to reseal it with afterwards.

Looks like you're right about the O-So being from 1949. It was made by the Obear-Nester Glass Company, which I think is a fairly uncommon maker of soda bottles. I don't remember hearing of them before. https://sha.org/bottle/pdffiles/Obear-Nester.pdf

The Castoria probably dates to roughly the 1930s-40s or so. I think that was the last embossed design they used.

Creomulsion was a cough syrup made with creosote. Amazingly, it's still available today, although without the creosote and with dextromethorphan instead.

The jug looks professionally made to me, although I'm no expert in that sort of thing. It looks similar to a lot of late-19th century pottery I've seen but that form was also popular as decor more recently so I can't really say.

Piso's cure was a cough medicine made of cannabis and chloroform - quite the combination!

The one with the elephant is a Jumbo peanut butter jar i believe. The other is a Nehi with a worn off acl. The last one is obviously an rc cola. None of them are very valuable with an intact label. So wothout they are pretty much worthless, bo offense. However they might be a good memory. I've got a couple that have a worn off acl but I remember finding them when i first started collecting, so I kept them.

Thanks so much and no offense taken was most curious about the hobble skirt as well. It says Valdosta Ga on bottom. No embossed Coca Cola though…. And it has circle c for Chattanooga glass company or ?
