    Hi I bought these at an estate sale for $12 piece. All I know is the guy behind me admired them and said they are old. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Flowergirl, honestly I'm not familiar with these bottles. I good person to contact is Bill Lindsey. He has always been a great reference for me and is always good about replying quickly. bill@historicalbottles.com

      Thanks Vermont I will contact him ;)

      Wish I could help you more, but not familiar with 20th century bottles as these appear to be. Bill is way more knowledgeable than I and he is very patient, good luck! Also, do not let the 20th century thing put you off, they could be very collectable.

      Thanks for your time Vermont. Yes it is fun learning. I am on disability and this gives me something to do. I can't believe how nice everyone is on this site including you. Thanks again.

      Most are very friendly, except jewels...she's just evil :-) let me know what Bill has to say....and finally, I hear copious amounts of pinot aids in the recovery of any disability, get well soon!

      Thanks I am researching 18and19 century bottles. I want the old stuff. It appears the older bottles are very dark in color.

      Laugh out loud! Seriously Vermont! Nice bottles flower girl!

      Color varies the aqua are usually the most common. If you want great antique bottle ideas, go to Jeff and Holly Noordsy's web site. They possess some of the best anywhere. They live in Shoreham, Vermont and are usually very patient and helpful. They only specialize in historical bottles so would not help with the bottles you have posted. Just google their name and voila. Also look into figural bitters and mineral waters, it's a good place to start a collection.....

      By the way flowergirl, Jewels isn't that bad...just a little mean is all :-) (totally kidding, she's one righteous chica!)

      The blue one looks like a bottle for a water dispenser. They have been selling bottled water for a long time.

      Good advice, Vermont. We published an interview with Bill Lindsey here:

      Thanks everyone and thanks Ben for the article. This will be beneficial. Wish me luck guys/gals going to my 2nd auction. Someone cleaned out a mansion in Detroit so we shall see. I saw 2 bottles that are navy in color need to look at the lip and see if there's a scar inside. I need to read article thoroughly.
