Nice finds, I love old bottles. Found one like the white one on the far right of your picture. Some kind of cold cream bottle.

What are those clear bottles? Never saw any like that.

Yes the white ones are cold cream such as Pond's etc. Incidently, white glass is commonly known as "milk glass". As some others have said the clear stubby ones are inks. A little 4 #0000 steel wool and some cleaner will get those rust stains out.
