One of the things that attracts me to old bottles like these is the mystery inherent in wondering who last handled them for some particular purpose and what was that purpose? Medicinal? Pharmacological? (don'tcha love words like pharmacological?) Chemistry for medicine or pharmaceutical purposes? So many possiblities and every crack or stain or small amount of residue has a tale to tell that we can only imagine or speculate about. World class Sherlock Holmes or Charlie Chan or even Columbo proportions? Nah ... but that matters little to me. Once, a child or parent or sibling or all of the above sat or stood anxiously by while someone who was trusted to use these things in the correct and most beneficial way mixed or dispensed that bottle's contents. Where are they now? Are they even aware that the bottles that cured a headache or stopped an infection or .. or .. well, I really like old bottles ...
