Collectable Vintage & Antique Bottles


I can’t help but grab these whenever I come across them- not only do I think they are worthy of appreciation, but also, and possibly more importantly- preservation!
Packaging today is a disgrace, landfills and oceans overflowing with plastic and styrofoam and all sorts of other nasty things. We as humans have made such remarkable strides in technology, but packaging is definitely an area in which I feel we only seem to be going backwards! Sure, some companies are taking steps to make improvements, but it’s all too little too late if you ask me!
Aren’t these bottles beautiful- which is your favorite!
Mine are of course the poison bottles- aren’t they cool! Designed with ridges so that you could easily identify them when feeling around in the dark- back in the days of permanent load shedding. I have to wonder how many fateful accidents occurred before this became a thing? “Oh no Harold!! Edith’s taken a swig from the arsenic again!!”   … what a time to be alive!
Most have likely been dug from the ground and all are are in excellent condition, there may however still be some remnants of soil from were my trusty bottle brush couldn’t reach.
Beautiful displayed on their own or an excellent way to propagate plants on your windowsill!
