No ideas on either of these. The nicely scrolled bottle to the left is about three inches tall. The seam is not carried up onto the neck or the lip. No writing. it was lying on TOP of the ground in a ravine I' m digging. The other is embossed NUTMEG and has a steel rim. Top has ridges but is not a screw-type. Any ideas on the age or other on these ? -Dave.

The bottle on the left is typical of perfume type.
Same era.
I' d give this area a thorough search as you are into a good era for finding some nice bottles.
Good finds!!!

Why would a kerosene lantern have the word NUTMEG on it ? Is that a company name and not the spice ? Looks great, tho, and thanks for the tips. I' m planning to case this area extensively. its in an older part of Omaha where I found a silver dime from 1882 the other day.

Thanks for that info. I was thinking maybe entrepreneurial makers in the day were labeling their jars so the housewife might have another use for it following the initial. -Dave.
