These 3 old bottles were probably buried for a long time. They've developed a beautiful iridescent patina, and they're in very good condition. They'd probably clean up just fine if you like 'em all shiny and new, ... but then you'd have to bury them again and wait a long time until they looked this good again.

The largest of the 3 has KREML (a hair creme) in big letters down the side, and "R.B. Semler, New Canaan CONN - USA" on the opposite side. It's 6" tall and has a slight curvature, which was a flaw when it was made, but now it's a plus.

The middle-sized bottle has "ACEITE MEXICANO" on the bottom. This 'Mexican Oil' was a patent medicine from Northern New Mexico, used to treat stomach ailments. It's 5.5" tall

The smallest, wide mouth bottle only has "2 1/2 FL OZ" and a 2 and a 0 on the bottom, and it's just under 4" tall. Item #E-1007050
