old 5 1/2" clear decorative bottles

edited February 22 in Question and Answer
Found these with a bunch of items from 1930's. Bottle on left has "K 3-3" on bottom. Bottle on right has "7" on bottom. No other identifying marks.

  • Interesting, thanks for posting. It seems that they are meant to mimic the appearance of a kerosene lamp but it is entirely unclear to me what they may have been used for. They seem much too small for lamp oil, but possibly they were some kind of promotional product for lamps. Even that is a stretch if we are talking 1930ish since electric power was fairly common by that time.
