Set of 4 vintage apothecary bottles from the 1940's - 1950's. These bottles were made by Owens-Illinois and have bakelite plastic screw-caps. The bottles stand about 8" tall and hold 16 oz. of liquid solutions. This more modern rectangular shape (1 7/8" wide by 3 1/2' deep) maximized shelf space in the compounding pharmacy versus the older, more decorative "label under glass" bottles. The paper labels do not have a protective cover glass in this style of bottle, and there is scuffing and fading of the printing consistent with the age of the bottles. Thiate. & Codeine: Codeine Sulfate, a potent narcotic analgesic for management of severe pain. Also a frequent component of cough syrups in the 1940-1960 time period prior to more extensive FDA regulation. Bronchial Iodized: Iodized Oil, a radiopaque medium for diagnosing and treating a variety of bronchial afflictions. Consisted of 40% metallic iodine dissolved/suspended in poppy seed oil. Elixir Saw Palmeto. The berries of saw palmetto contain several pharmacologically active compounds, and have been used for more than 200 years to treat "general malaise", catarrh and a variety of urogenital problems. More recent studies failed to prove the urogenital benefits. Elixir Betalin. Complex: Vitamin B complex, a tonic used to treat a wide variety of ailments.
