8 1/8" tall, 3 3/4" wide, and 2" deep Screw-top pint flask with "Federal Law forbids.."; numbers on the bottom This very well made bottle contains logging tools: heavy axes, a saw, and "log dogs" (poles with big metal hooks on them for manoeuvering logs as they float on a river). All the tools are interlocked and are resting on a base that is suspended on heavy wires from the ends of the locking stopper. The hooks of the log dogs are metal. The bottle came from the upper midwest U.S. (Full image and details)
12 3/8" tall,
4 5/8" in diameter
brandy-style bottle, no seams, no markings The bottle contains several tools painted gold: a sawbuck and saw, axe and mallet. Several of the pieces are out of place. Dangling from the locked stopper are silk tassels which have shed strands on the tools. While the insides are not in the best shape, the stopper is grand with pictures inset on all four sides and then protected with little ovals of thin plastic. A piece of paper wrapped around the stopper in the neck of the bottle is signed "S. J. Harris Feb. 1905" (Full image and details)
12" large pale green bottle, no markings This colorful bottle not only has a sawbuck, saw and axe, but it has a boat resting on top of the sawbuck, and four crosses dangling from the locking bars of the stopper. The colors are red and green with some accents in blue. (Full image and closeup)
11" total (chain hanging down) small 7" flask The bottle contains an anvil with long pliers, tongs and a mallet, but the best feature of this bottle is the ball-in-cage stopper with four links of whimsey chain, all smoothly sanded and varnished. It is dated Feb 24 1970 but not signed. (Full image and closeup)
