Vintage Brown Bottles

Hi everyone. As many of you know, I LOVE vintage blue bottles and have quite a collection of them. But did you know I also love vintage brown bottles? Any grouping of collectibles, such as bottles, will look great when shown in a grouping where they are all in the same color or color family. On a recent antiquing spree, I found this gorgeous Wan-Eta Cocoa jar, from Boston! It looks like a Ball jar, with a zinc type of lid, but has a unique shape to it. I have not seen a cocoa jar before. This brown jar is from H.K. Mulford Co. Chemists in Philadelphia.

And this small bottle, with the triangular shaped front, is a poison bottle. Up until recently, I had not seen a brown poison bottle, just cobalt blue poison bottles.

Whatever color you love, there are probably some vintage bottles or depression glass pieces that will look great as accents in your home.

Have a great day. Sincerely, Lynn
