These bottles and other collectibles are a part of the VanZandt Collection. They were found at Old Fort Elliott. We have them on loan from the family. They are many and varied. Among them can be found the following:
Bitters Bottles Ink Wells Insulators Pottery Beer and Ale Bottles Mineral & Soda Water Bottles Wine Bottles Whiskey Bottles Picnic Flask Beer Bottles Patent & Proprietary Bottles Sarsaparilla Bottles Fruit Jars Food Bottles Pickle Bottle Pepper Sauce Bottles Salt Cellars Cottage Cheese Bottle Perfume, Scent & Cologne Bottles Bluing Bottles Blacking Bottles for Stoves Snuff Bottles Pottery Ink Containers
This is a very unique and beautiful display. Some of the bottles are opaque and green in color and some are amethyst in color. Through research we found the amethyst were all made before 1910.
