Set of three brown and clear glass Lysol poison bottles
A lovely set of three vintage glass Lysol bottles two in hues of brown and one in clear glass, all 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 :
- An unusual find - a clear glass Lysol bottle with a chevron pattern to the glass. 9.5 cm tall.
- A Boots All British bottle with a dotted pattern and Lysol embossed on the front. 12 cm tall.
- A brown bottle with a diamond embossed pattern with Not to Be Taken. 9.5 cm tall.
All the bottles are in good vintage condition. There are various marks, inclusions and manufacturing bubbles in the glass.
