Recalling the Medicine Shows of Old, this is one of a lot of antique chemist, apothecary or vinagrette bottles given me by my friend the bottle collector who digs these up from under old houses.

All have been thoroughly cleaned in the following manner. They are first soaked in hot soapy bleach water for a time to loosen up any remaining contents or dirt. They are then scrubbed clean using a variety of brushes including metal. I then tumble them with old beads of shot to remove any residue. Many of the bottles are still cloudy with sediment from age, but they are all sterile and ready for your use in all of those lotions, potions or vinagrettes; store bought or home made. A muriatic acid bath will remove any unwanted cloudiness or haze, but I rather like it and as long as I know that the vessel is clean I am happy.

These also great for light catchers in your home decor.

This if for an amber glass medicine with screw on plastic top embossed with the name San Metto and Made in the USA. Marked 7/8/9 with the duraglass mark on bottom. Small chip on rim shown in the 3rd photo.

Am offering free shipping on this one, but will happily combine shipping on a collection of your choice, so be sure to check out the other bottles I will be listing this week. Thanks very much.
