Found these while digging a new dump today. Found 8 pharmacies but all from NY oddly since I'm in CT. What is even odder is that 7 of them are what I believe to be hospital bottles.

One of the N.Y.S.H. Pharmacy Rochester, NY bottles (They all look really early like maybe 1880s or 1870s). Does N.Y.S.H. stand for New York State Hospital? Anyone seen these before or have any info?:

Very thin lips and some have uneven lips:

Definitely going back when I have more time since this spot seems like it has a good age.

Thanks for looking,

Cool stuff !!! I’ve always liked those Clicqluot bottles , and that early Texaco piece is killer ! Is it celluloid ?

Buddy of mine dug a Boericke & Taffel in Michigan. I’m not sure what these were but I assume a patent med?

These were pharmacy bottles. Boericke & Tafel was a wholesale homeopathic pharmacy located in NYC. There are many variations of bottles from there. The bottles are usually pretty common, but I've always liked them. The one I had just found however is probably one of the scarcer variations. What color is that one you showed?
