Im not glasshopper, wish I had the knowledge he possesses though but I'm going with early 1900's -1925??? with bottle #1&3 and mid 1900's with the middle bottle, which looks like a creamer bottle. Glasshopper im sure has much more info though, these are just guesses Nice digs! Looks like your getting into older bottles, especially with the applied top (bottle #3)...happy hunting out there!

Believe the jar type is possible some kind of pickle jar. The amount of bubbles is making me question its age. The bottom bottle may have been a medicine bottle or a flavoring extract bottle, but with no embossing, it would have had a paper label. But the seam looks like it stops at the shoulder, meaning the top was applied seperately. Giving a good indication its right around the turn of the 20th century. Keep digging, it certainly looks to have potential!

Heres a little info on the bottle, still looking for a date of production...

This vintage clear glass medicine bottle features embossed words on both SIDES of the bottle including HEBERLING on one side & BLOOMINGTON, ILL on the other. Measures 6.25"H x 2.25"W x 1.25"D. Marked on the bottom with a raised diamond.

This bottle has NO label, but another bottle posted online in the same form/shape & markings included a paper label with "Heberling's Blood Tonic & Laxative Compound & tends to clease the system - stimulate the appetite" - manufactured by G. C. Heberling Co., Bloomington, ILL (see comment photo below).

Historic Heberling Co. factory & warehouse was located at Douglas & Prairie St. Heberling's wide-ranging product list included remedies such as camphor cream, "headache tablets," and laxative tea; toiletries like vanishing cream, complexion powder & "Flowers of Beauty" perfume; extracts flavors & spices; & other items ranging from stove polish to sewing machine oil. Used self-employed salesmen who went door to door selling Heberling products.

Unique local medicine bottle.

I hereby appoint cellrdwellr as my stand-in while I am out for major surgery soon. He's pretty much nailed it. I would say the first one is 1910-20 and either food or condiment. It is quite bubbly for the era. The second one, also probably a condiment or food bottle also, around WW1 give or take. The third one looks older, maybe early 1900s to maybe 1910 with what looks like an applied top. I can't see the seams to see where they end to know for sure. If it says Heberling on the sides it is indeed a household product bottle ranging from medicine to solvents and anything between. Can't be sure with the front/back paper labels long gone. The hardest thing about accurately dating these type bottles is that even after Automatic Bottle Machines came in, many companies continued to use old methods. Anyway, you're into a good era for finding some nice stuff like beers. Mlk bottles in that era are very desirable.

10-4 the reason I asked is that "applied top" style was popular so even after machine made bottles became the norm, they made those style bottles with the seam all the way up through the top (early-mid 20s).

Thanks for the well wishes.
