Offered is a very nice group of 8 Merck as well as Powers & Weightman Pharmacy and Chemist bottles.
First is a robust 8" size early 1900s Powers-Weightman-Rosengarten POTASSIUM SALICYLATE stock bottle.
Bottle #2 is a 7 inch high Merck ANTIMONY CHLORIDE formerly used in veterinary medicine as a dehorning agent.
Bottle #3 CALCIUM CHLORIDE, is 6 inches tall and was used as a source of calcium in foods, paper manufacture and chemistry to mention a few.
Item #4 ACID PICRIC was used in medicine as an antiseptic and for the treatment of burns. It measures 3.5 inches.
Bottle #5 GUAIACOL CARBONATE from Powers & Weightman measures 5 inches high and was used as an expectorant and disinfectant.
Bottle #6 HYDROCYANIC ACID measures 4.5 inches and was used as a pesticide. Empty.
Bottle #7 EMETINE from Sharpe & Dohme measures a mere 2 inches tall and is an emetic.
Finally, a 5 inch bottle #8 LEAD OXIDE was used in the building trade.
All the bottles are in fine shape and sport labels that show wear, stains or fading commensurate with age. Most are circa early 1900 with EMETINE being from the 1920 era. A very interesting group!
