Here is a clear glass antique medicine bottle

 

It stands approx 4 1/2 inches tall and is approx 2 inches in diameter. The bottle is rectangluar & flat shaped with stright sides.  

 

The embossed words on the bottle read:  “H. Paffard, Chemist, Niagara ONT”.

 

There are a few bubbles within the glass

 

No cracks, no chips. One tiny area of roughness on the front of the bottle's neck.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: MY PHOTOS WERE TAKEN OUTSIDE IN NATURAL SUNLIGHT. NO 'TOUCH-UPS' (EDITING) OF THE PHOTOS HAS BEEN DONE. THIS IS HOW THEY APPEAR IN SUNLIGHT. THEY MAY LOOK DIFFERENT IF DISPLAYED IN THE HOUSE UNDER ELECTRIC LIGHTING CONDITIONS.

 

This was a “dug bottle” by my grandfather approx 60 years ago (in the 1950s) and all items dug in the Niagara area of Ontario, Canada.

 

It is in “as found” condition, complete with minor dirt and blemishes (I have not attempted to clean the bottles in fear of damaging them).

As always, please see photos and feel free to ask questions. I am not an antiques dealer, I am a grand-daughter selling a lifetime of collections for my grandmother. I will be listing literally hundreds of items in the upcoming weeks and months, so please check back or add me to your "Favorites". I do combine shipping costs on everything to get you the best deal in shipping.

FIRST PHOTO: TAKEN IN SUNLIGHT (OUTSIDE)

SECOND PHOTO: SAME BOTTLE, PHOTO ALSO TAKEN OUTSIDE BUT WITH DARK BACKGROUND SO YOU CAN SEE ANY SURFACE FLAWS

   

Will be packaged carefully for shipping

It is not easy to start a really great collection. Ideally, you should have help, and not all collectors are willing to share information. Lack of experience is another problem that has to be considered. It takes several years' experience in a particular field to be able to correctly determine the quality of an object. Sometimes you get rid of things you should have kept or you buy things that you shouldn't have.

In short, collectors are driven by a real passion, the "feverishness of finding a specific object." After collecting for many years, you begin to have some practical experience … you begin to recognize the objects, to know lots of things and that is what becomes interesting. There is a taste for adventure from the outset. A passion for collecting can allow one to meet many historians and people in museums, as well as travel and discover the world around you, which makes collecting a social activity.

$12.00 (TAKES ABOUT A WEEK; MAILED FROM CANADA; ON-LINE TRACKING IS INCLUDED)

(shipping may cost less than quoted: if so, a partial refund will be issued after item is mailed)

? ? ? ? ?

I AM SOMETIMES ASKED WHY IT COSTS MORE TO MAIL FROM CANADA THAN FROM AMERICA AND THAT IS BECAUSE OF THE COST OF CANADAPOST. I DO NOT OVER-CHARGE CANADIANS. 

SOMETIMES IT APPEARS THAT YOU HAVE PAID MORE FOR CANADIAN SHIPPING (BY ABOUT 13%) THAN THE ACTUAL POSTAGE COSTS BUT THIS IS NOT SO...THE 13% HST TAX STILL HAS TO BE PAID ON CANADIAN SHIPPING BUT THEY DO NOT INCLUDE THAT TAX PAID ON THE POSTAGE THAT APPEARS ON YOUR PACKAGE, SO IT LOOKS LIKE ACTUAL COST TO MAIL WAS LESS. I REFUND POSTAGE COSTS IF ACTUAL PRICE OF SHIPPING IS MUCH LESS THAN YOU HAVE PAID. I DO NOT ASK YOU FOR MORE MONEY IF THE POSTAGE IS ANY MORE THAN I HAVE QUOTED.

Handling time is 1 day but it may take 3-4 days for this item to get through Canada and United States customs, then it will be trackable for you through the USPS postal system


PLEASE NOTE: IF THIS ITEM IS BEING MAILED TO ANY COUNTRY OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES OR CANADA, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT YOUR ITEM WILL BE SUBJECT TO CUSTOMS/DUTIES/IMPORT TAX UPON ENTERING YOUR COUNTRY.

THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN OFTEN, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU (THE BUYER) ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY DUTIES/TAXES THAT MAY BE IMPOSED ON YOUR ITEM. EVERY COUNTRY HAS DIFFERENT RULES ABOUT WHAT VALUE AMOUNT IS TAXABLE AND WHAT PERCENTAGE OF CUTY IS TO BE PAID.

FOR INSTANCE, IF YOUR COUNTRY TAXES ITEMS OVER A $400 VALUE AT 7% AND YOU PURCHASE A $1000 ITEM, YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY A $70 DUTY/CUSTOMS FEE UPON RECEIVING YOUR PACKAGE. THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. EVERY COUNTRY HAS DIFFERENT RATES.

DUTIES/CUSTOMS ARE NOT THE SELLER'S FAULT OR RESPONSIBILITY. THIS IS NOT 'POSTAGE DUE'. THIS WAS NOT A MISTAKE ON THE SELLER'S PART. THIS IS THE GOVERNMENT POLICY OF THE COUNTRY THAT YOU LIVE IN AND IT APPLIES TO EVERYONE

THIS HAS REALLY NEVER BEEN AN ISSUE FOR MY INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS IN OVER 10 YEARS OF SELLING. BUT I AM ONLY WRITING THIS AS PER EBAY'S RULES & REGULATIONS THAT THIS SHOULD BE MENTIONED.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
