    These are the amethyst colored bottles that i have. As per recent discussion here on artificial glass irradiation, i decided to post them for an expert to confirm which ones are indeed irradiated (if it's possible to determine via photos). I suspect that the three embossed ones are "nuked", and the plain ones turned purple naturally. Any thoughts?

      The very dark one is for sure "nuked." The Schiller could be.
      I love the Milford, but if it's not "nuked" it had to have been outside for quite some time (if it is "nuked," they didn't overdo it.)
      The back left bottle with the screw-top is a Ketchup bottle.
      The front left may be a glue (mucilage) or ink.
      The Milford and similarly shaped are druggist bottles.
      I'd like to see more pics of the embossing of your blob with partial (or is it full, with stopper on it too?) bail.
      The other bottle with wide mouth may have been for something like olives and pickles-- I forgot for now the word for that sort of stuff. Mouth looks too wide for olives and the bottle is probably too small for pickles.

      SpiritBear, thank you for your comment, helpful info and IDing the unmarked bottles.
      I'll take a picture of the blob bottle and post it over the weekend. Weekdays are tough. What do you love about the Milford bottle?

      Thank you all for the loves and stopping by! Very much appreciated.

      The Milford is a druggist. I love druggist bottles and dunno why.

      My most recent is pretty stained:

      Spirit, druggist bottles are also my favorite. I think they are just more versatile in shape, form and color and interesting.
      I posted additional pics of an embossed blob bottle as you asked.
      Also there's info on it here...
