Collectible Medicine Bottles

Collectible Medicine Bottles are one of the largest Categories of collectible Bottles!

Collectible medicine bottles are considered to be one of the largest categories of collectible bottles across the world. Due to the presence of a number of manufacturers, medicines and dosages, collectible medicine bottles are available in shapes and size that none can imagine the extent of. Ranging from children's medicine to ointments to remedial drugs, collectible medicine bottles is a hobby that will surely keep you busy for a long time coming.

Collectible medicine bottles have been around since the time medicine has been around. Medicine bottles are something that everyone, who has ever had some ailment, would have in their homes. The difference in the brands, products, versions and even manufacturers has always been one of the key features that determines the kind of bottle that the medicine would come in.

When looking to start with your collectible medicine bottle hobby, you can simply start off with whatever you can get your hands on, i.e. collectible medicine bottles that are lying in your house. While present day bottles are also worth adding to your collection, chances are that they won't add as much value as your old and rare medicine bottles. If you go to local antique stores, chances are that you might stumble across something that's old and useful to your collection.

If you are a really keen collectible medicine bottle observer, then you can differentiate bottles based on the advertising or labels that are either pontiled, i.e. have an identification mark of a pontil rod that held them while they were being made or have embossing of the names of the manufacturers, the brands and other details.

Such bottles usually are worth much more than the conventional collectible medicine bottles available today. While to begin your collection you can simply start with what you get in stores today, if you really want your collection to be taken seriously, then you need to look at such old and rare bottles with some of the typical characteristics of collectible medicine bottles from the past.

Your collectible medicine bottle hobby doesn't need any special attention in terms of care and maintenance. A periodical dust-down or wash-down is enough to last a few days. Unless the bottles have any special labels or paint-work on them, light also doesn't cause many issues on these collectible medicine bottles.

Easy to find and extremely cheap to accumulate and maintain, collectible medicine bottles offer an unending hobby that keeps going through a number of twists and turns that are totally dependent on the choices you make along the way. So for a fun-filled exciting hobby, just head to the nearest garage sale and begin your collectible medicine bottles' hobby.
