There are many bottle collectors in the world who collect milk bottles, liquor bottles, and coca cola bottles. However, a lot of people agree that some of the most beautiful bottles to collect today are former poison bottles. Poison bottles which normally date from 1870 to the mid 1930ís, usually come in a wide variety of colors, sizes and shapes, and for good reason. In those days, many people were illiterate and there were many accidental poisonings.
To prevent this from happening, many manufacturers started using colors like rich cobalt blues, deep ambers and many dark shades of green to help distinguish the bottles. Additionally, they used many different textures; raised ridges, diamond or horizontal ribbing, and or hobnail are just some designs they used to keep people from poisoning themselves. These bottles are now very collectible and a recent auction on EBay saw a similar bottle to the one pictured on the left sell for close to $4200.
