These bottles are a rare find. They are vintage purple medicine bottles and a flask. 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 them to turn this incredible color. It's hard to find bottles with manganese anymore but you would know because you would see a very slight hint of lavender coloration in them.

None of these bottles has any markings. They all probably date in the early 1900s before 1924 when screw top was invented. The bottle with the black sea fan was probably an old medicine bottle that once had a label on the front. You can tell by the beveling on the front. The bottle is edged with silver leaf paint and then trimmed around the neck with white velvet ribbon.

The bottle with the sea biscuit is very pretty and a very different shape than any I have found before. It was also cork topped. This bottle has no markings. I've added a beautiful big white sea biscuit to the top of this bottle and edged it also with silver leaf paint and trimmed with white velvet ribbon as well.

The smallest bottle is a vintage flask. I love the shape of the old flasks. It also has some amazing dragging texture to the glass. I'm not sure how this occurred and I've never seen this before but love it. I've added a pretty sable and white mitra mitra to this bottle. And it is trimmed and edged in the same manner as the other two.

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 so light can flow through them. These bottles would look beautiful with any seashell collection. What a great addition to your coastal home.

Thanks for looking!
