Antique Bottles – Apothecary Jars and Other Garage Sale Finds

I went to a garage sale on Saturday morning and came across a few treasures I thought I’d share here.
I am not usually a collector of bottles, but these were so cute and old I couldn’t pass them up!

Among them I was excited to find this old Queensland Golden Circle bottle, complete with a pineapple picture and logo. 
And so was my 10 year old, who LOVES anything “Pineapple” at the moment!

And an old Schweppes softdrink (soda) bottle:
This old jar is a Bushells Tea jar. See the next pic below it for the logo on the bottom of the jar.

This bottle below has the words “Pain Killer” on one side …
… and “Vegetable” on the other side. I’d love to know why? Sounds a bit conflicting. Was there really a vegetable type of pain killer?? Would love to hear anyone’s insight if you know your bottle history. (comment below)

Wording on this bottle is: J.C.Eno’s Effervescing Fruit Salt

And the one below says: HAUTHAWAYS

and PEERLESS GLOSS and Made in USA on the other two sides.

Some more coloured glass bottles … A Bovril bottle …

Including a Bonox bottle:

and some other cute Apothecary vessels.

Would you believe this still has a Peppermint type of essence still in it!

This logo is on the back side. I don’t recognize it – do you?

Here are some other treasures I came home with:
This medicine cabinet! I can’t wait to do this one up. What a perfect little cupboard to store these old medicinal bottles in!
A couple of old drawers! I love upcycling drawers into shelves to hang on the wall.

Some great old frames that I hope to do up for the Twilight Makers Market in Cleveland this Saturday.

Love this old picture here too. Can’t see it clearly here, but this little child is sitting in a lovely French looking chair.
