A dark rich green THE IMPERIAL / EAU DE COLOGNE Co Ltd / LONDON with ground
throat and base embossed with a fancy R.K. It has not been verified yet as a salts

included in the picture for company comparison... PALMER embossed and crown lid:

Three LAZELL'S bottles in various shades of teal. Two salts bottles embossed
the same, flanking a toilet water. The left one has more of a shoulder to it and an
embossed (script monogram on top) ground stopper. The middle bottle is embossed
on the opposite side: LAZELL'S / NEW YORK / PERFUMES. It has two black and silver
labels. One states: Violet Toilet Water... and the other mentions: ...Lazell, Dalley &
Co. We're not sure if the fancy stopper is original, but it looks great. The far right
variant has a crude lip and the shoulder is at a sharper angle.

MIGNON SALTS, Made in U.S.A. The next is yellow green with a stopper
and contents inside. There is a destroyed partial label on the other side.

sort of salts or scent. It has a ground throat to accept a stopper.
Heights w/out stoppers, 1 - 3/8 in., 2 - 1/8 in., 1 - 3/4 in.
A gradient yellow green McCORMICK & CO. BALTO salts bottle with
ground throat. We've seen a lot of different stoppers for these, so it's hard to tell
which is original. Years ago, these were once confused as poison bottles.
We have seen a labeled variant stating that these were used for smelling salts.
It is 2 in. long by 1 - 3/8 in. wide.
A pair of LUSCOMB'S LAVENDER SALTS...
a darker and a lighter teal green variant.
Both are 2 - 1/2 in. long with the stopper.

form of a LUSCOMB'S LAVENDER SALTS (above) and still
filled with salts. It may have been a label only salts.
It is also 2 - 1/2 in. long with the stopper.
A beautiful green round ROTHPLETZ & SCHIPPER NEW YORK around R&S.
The reverse has 60% of a label that states... smelling salts.
