Vintage eclectic collection of aromatic extracts in antique pharmacy bottles. The Gill's Rexall Drugs label has a Phone 35 on one bottle and Phone 291 on another. Containers actually contain the pungent oils used medicinally and as food flavorings which were dispensed from a pharmacy in Appleton, Minnesota. Interesting to find these contained in a baby food jar along with a green translucent and a wooden, painted black and white pair of dice. Home decor or mixed media assemblage art supply.

Wintergreen is a North American plant. Cloves are the dried flower bud of a tropical tree native to Indonesia. Cinnamon is the inner bark of trees naive to South East Asia.

F.Y.I., according to Wikipedia, In early telephone systems, connections were made in the central office by telephone operators using patch cords to connect one party to another. If a person wanted to make a phone call, in some phone systems he or she would pick up a phone and wind a crank on the side. In other systems the person would wind the crank first, then pick up the phone. The crank was a small generator that would light a lamp at the central office. An operator would see the light and insert their patch cord into a socket and assist the customer with the call connection. The operator would use patch cords to connect the caller to the person being called. If the party being called was in another exchange, the operator would use a patch cord to connect to another exchange where an operator elsewhere would finish the connection. The latter part of 1879 and the early part of 1880 saw the first use of telephone numbers. During an epidemic of measles, the physician, Dr. Moses Greeley Parker, feared that Lowell's four telephone operators might all succumb to sickness and bring about a paralysis of telephone service. He recommended the use of numbers for calling Lowell's more than 200 subscribers so that substitute operators might be more easily trained in the event of such an emergency.
