Looking for the perfect decor item for your coastal home or beach house? You're going to love this blend of history and the ocean. I search flea markets for vintage bottles to create these beautiful bottles. Display these on your mantel, book shelf or tabletop for all your guests to see.

I love collecting these bottles and researching them. Here's what I know about this set:

The tallest bottle is a large aqua medicine bottle with no markings. It was once a cork top bottle dating it before 1924, probably in the late 1800s. It has a nice frosty color to it which reminds me of sea glass. To the top of this bottle I've added a big white common starfish. The bottle is edged with silver leaf paint and trimmed with hand dyed jute that is an ivory color.

The next tallest bottle is the bottle with the pink sea urchin. This bottle was also a medicine bottle which was also corked. It dates in the late 1800s or early 1900s. It has a slight chip on the bottle edge but doesn't affect the beauty of this bottle. The inside of this bottle is very similar to the tall bottle, with a sea glass appearance. It has been finished in the same manner.

The last bottle is a vintage Pond's Extract bottle and is embossed with POND'S EXTRACT on the front and the bottom is embossed with the year 1846. This is a lovely bottle with a great shape and color. It's topped with a royal scallop shell with beautiful shades of orange, burgundy, pink and white. This bottle is finished in silver leaf paint and trimmed with hand dyed jute.

Bottle history
------------------
Theron T. Pond of Utica, New York developed a healing tea which he extracted from the witch hazel plant, based on information he obtained from an Oneida Indian medicine man. He used this formulation to heal small cuts and other assorted ailments (witch hazel has a powerful astringent action). This medicinal tea, which he called "Golden Treasure", was later renamed "Pond's Extract" after his death in 1850. The Pond Company went on to become an icon of American consumer products, including "Pond's Vanishing Cream" and "Pond's Cold Cream".

This is a very lovely pastel set of vintage sea life bottles that would be perfect for any beach house. Thank you for looking.
