Collection of amber brown Lysol poison bottles
A lovely set of three vintage glass Lysol bottles all in hues of brown / amber and dating from the early twentieth century.
Lysol antiseptic disinfectant was first introduced in 1889 to help end a cholera epidemic in Germany and is still available in different formulations today. The original formulation of Lysol contained cresols and was poisonous if ingested. The markings on all these bottles help to identify them as being poisonous if ingested.
Nowadays they provide a great tactile and attractive set of bottles in a lovely warm brown amber glass which look great on display. The three bottles in this collection include:
- A Marshall's Lysol bottle with triangle and circle logo and diamond pattern. 12 cm tall.
- A Boots All British bottle with a dotted pattern and Lysol embossed on the front. 12 cm tall.
- Another dotted pattern embossed with Not to Be Taken. 10 cm tall.
All the bottles are in good vintage condition. There are various marks and manufacturing bubbles in the glass.
They would look beautiful displayed in a collection of glass or as a single stem vases. Would work well in a kitchen, living room or bathroom. They're also useful for decanting essential oils into and using as a reed diffuser.
