    I love going through all these items in this estate. These are super cool bottles and some of them are full.

    I love the name of the products "Camphor Diskoids" I think they trade marked the name. There is Kava Kava and cute green drop bottle.

    The bigger bottles - what is dentif: camph sapon?

    SpiritBear and Annab - What do I do with all this stuff? I mean I don' t have a cold....

      Camph sapon is camphor (usually a solid, sometimes suspended in oils) of whatever sapon is from in the Latin.
      Most of these look to be fairly new in the bottle world by comparison: after 1910. The Diskoids one, being embossed, labeled, and full is pretty neat. The bigger round bottles are what is called "shop bottles", typically used in drug-stores.
      I'd think that all of them date to the first quarter of the 20th century.

      Thank you so much. You are wonderful. I have other old bottles and trying to figure out the ages. Some purple, some brown....

      Anyway, all of this needs to go someplace. Do you have sites that you sell things on?
