    Default Medicine/apothecary bottles

    I give up! I have looked everywhere but where they may be found.

    Does anyone have a source for period correct bottles to build a medicine kit?

    Dixie Leather sells several sizes of bottles and has some carriers for them. Two other sites are www.pelletlabs.com and www.13moons.com. They have the small opening jars and the salt mouth(wide) opening jars. If you are doing a field medical officer impression you will not need a large number, just a few to carry select meds in your haversack or hospital knapsack.

    If you are looking for labels for your bottles, Sullivan Press has a nice assortment you may want to look at.

    If you still have a problem getting any of these bottles please PM me. I have a few hundred from digging a dump behind a Doctors house (1841-1876) most are just in boxes in my basement and may need cleaning.
