Like my $21 Shift Store Purchase? Good deal? I walk into a newly opened thrift store a town over where I live and walk straight to the glass section and fell into a Ball jar honey hole. I also got a few bottles as well and a box of Hemingway insulators (only one shown). Also got an old Indiana Cookie Store jar. Yes two big boxes of glass ware for $21. I told my wife, heck one jar alone paid for it all. I was excited.

I would say you got your moneys worth, for sure. I like the green covered deco looking jar, and that ball 1857 jar- is that a vintage urinal?! Lol! Fill it with some flowers and u have the perfect gift for someone in the hospital, if that’s what it is. It might be 1 of those weird baby bottles- but idk!

Reminds me of an old enamel chamber pot I once came across in the dish section of a thrift store. Someone had hand-painted the words "Popcorn Bowl" on it.
As for OP's strange bottle, I don't think it's a urinal or a baby bottle. I'm not sure what it is but it looks quite modern to me. Maybe part of a decorative oil set or something.

The two with the round bottoms are covers for shipboard lighting. The ribbed one and the one with the eagle are much newer...1970's or newer, I believe. The White House bottle and the Dazey Churn jar (assuming it is old and not one of the reproductions) are probably the best finds. Unfortunately I have trouble selling the Ball Perfect Mason jars, even for next to nothing.

Thanks, Amish used the round bottoms as well. There was a lady at the thrift who was spying on me, following isle to isle to see what I was buying, taking the lazy antiquing way out, once I noticed it,,, I said screw it I'm grabbing all of it.
