These bottles are a rare find. They are vintage purple medicine bottles. They were probably clear at one time. They contained manganese which when exposed to sunlight or xray, turns purple. They are such a deep purple color that it's believed someone intentionally exposed these bottles to xrays causing it to turn this incredible color. I've never found bottles this deep purple before and may never find again.

The bottle with the mushroom coral and moon shell has no markings but it probably dates before 1930 because it was originally a cork-top bottle. To the top of this bottle I've added a beautiful piece of white mushroom coral and behind it a wonderful pink and purple moon shell. The bottle is edged with silver leaf paint and then trimmed around the neck of the bottle with hand dyed off white colored jute. I love how the white and the purple compliment each other.

The bottle with the black sea fan is also a vintage medicine bottle and was also cork topped. This bottle has the symbol for ounces on the top front and measurements in ounces on one side and cc's on the other. This bottle originally held 8 ounces of medicine. I've added a black sea fan to the top of this bottle and edged it also with silver leaf paint and trimmed with hand dyed off white jute to match the other bottle.

These bottles make a beautiful set and are sure to bring up conversations from your guests. They look so beautiful backed up to a bright window. For that reason, I did not place any sand in these bottles because I love how they look when light shines through them.

These bottles would look beautiful with any seashell collection. What a great addition to your coastal home.

Thanks for looking!
