O is for Old Bottles
am a collector of old bottles which once may have contained perfume, medicine,
ink or fruit juice and made from clear,
green, blue or amber glass. I began
collecting them many years ago after finding my first bottle in an antique shop
I learnt the reason for the medicine bottles being strange shapes with the word
poison in raised letters.This was
because in the olden days before houses had lighting, a bottle containing poison may have been
picked up in error, thinking it contained water or another substance.
