    Don’t know too much about these, looks to be a variety of different types of things…I thought it might be fun to share and learn a bit.
    Thank You!

    Several of them look like eye cups.

    Wow! Great references, Thank You!!

    I initially thought the whiskey bottle was full…turns out it’s just solid glass all the way through…like a small paperweight or something. Odd.

    Nice collection!

    Those little fish bottles tend to be vintage vs antique. I’m not saying which yours is, just sharing what I learned when I looked into them.

    There is something a little whimsical about them that I absolutely love and I have a few :)

    Old bottles are heavily reproduced. There are American makers like Wheaton and Clevenger (and others whose names I can't recall) but, as with so many other things, a lot of stuff comes out of China and Taiwan and other countries as well.

    I think your "Elixir"bottle might be vintage and not antique--I bought one exactly like it in the late 1970s at a bottle museum in Australia....

    the Wheaton bottles if old say wheaton on the bottom if not they usually say Taiwan. I use to sell my Wheaton bottles for $6 apiece now you are lucky to get $2 and only if it is really cute.

    I would need to see how far up on the bottle's neck the mold line goes. Here is a link to help or you can just take a picture of the mold lines & bottom of the bottles & I could judge their ages better

    Owl drug became Rexall.... used to have a bunch of those in various sizes... I have the dark blue eye cup and a milk glass version, pretty sure mine are old but they may have reproduced them. I keep mine around as I have actually used them when getting something in my eye : safety glasses don't always work so well . They make neat displays for old glass eyes , should you happen to find a couple...lol. ( and I wonder where my 5 year old get's his Charles Addams sense of humor.....)
