    Bottles "brought" to me

    I found these weeks ago, just havn't had the time to post. So here the story goes...
    My dad owns a small cabinate making buisness and has friends who own other types of buisnesses as well. One of his friends owns an excivation company and my dad lets him dump dirt in the back of his shope. I was walking by the pile and spotted glass shards an such, I've never dug for bottles but i desided to give it a shot and started to dig in the pile. There were loads of broken peices probably because of the excivation equiptment, but i did manage to get these things. I am new to this so and advice/id's on the bottles would help alot. I do know that the round light blue/green bottle is morphine "baby killer", the make-up jar, and the stem to a pipe (the pipe bowl and pipe stem are from 2 different ones because the bowl would have the letters "TD" on it)
    Also some input on the double bottom mark on one bottle would help too.

    **The 2nd picture the word is Barnett

    Pictures are in two posts

    Thanks

    Re: Bottles "brought" to me

    Most of 'em seem to be common household containers. The first pair in your gallery are what I call extract bottles, but they were used for OTC medicinals as well.

    I like the sirop (French for "syrup") bottle . . . I wish I could read the lettering beyond the first word. Can you provide it, please.

    I don't know what the little white (stoneware? milk glass?) bottle is . . . a pourer or dripper of some sort, possibly a creamer but it could be something else entirely, like an insulator.

    The lettering on the french syrup bottle is "Sirop D'Anis Gauvin" I've done research on this name and the bottle was used for morphine AKA babby killer
    Also the little white thing with the letter "T" on it, the hole goes right thru out of the bottom

    The little white thing then is probably an insulator.

    It is; they're old but still in use by some people these days for electric fences.

    The reason they're great, cause they're old, not made any more and people like em for their bottle collection. I'm addicted to finding old bottles like this.

    Older than me & you.

    At least 75+, that's what I'm thinking.
