This lot would make a great addition to any miniature collection or even for resale in a antique shop. I believe all these bottles are from the 1930 to 1950 era. They were dug from a old dump site in Texas. Many of the other bottles that we have dug up have had dates embossed on the base & that is the era in which they were dated. Please let me know if you have any additional questions about any of these items. Thankyou for looking & good luck bidding.
