poisoners

Found some amazing glass bottles sailing boot sales the other day, including two glass poison bottles (see them >>>>>)

Apparently these Victorian bottles have the raised ridges and NOT TO BE TAKEN labels moulded into the glass because by candlelight or in the dark dark houses no-one could see what they were doing most of the time! The idea was even if illiterate, you would know that the ridges meant trouble…

They feel amazing and the heavy glass reflects light through it in an awesome, murky way. Love glass.
