Despite it being the middle of December, the ground actually thawed out for a while, and it was a great time to dig! An S.J. Briggs Prescription Specialist Providence, RI medicine was an unlisted size at 5”. Sadly it has a hole in it :-(
Just down the road, my digging partner and I decided to check out a mill village dump. I nearly fell over when I pulled out an A. Zurlinden 50 Spring St. Manville, RI medicine! Sadly the top was broken off, but this find was so exciting I plan to have it expertly repaired. There is only one other known medicine bottle from Manville.
A fairly common James O'Hare Pharmacist Providence medicine was slightly different from my other examples. The embossed letter are all the same size, while on my other examples, the first letter of each word is larger than the rest.
Another A.F. Cappelli 255 Atwells Ave. Providence blob had a different embossing style, with 255 on a separate line from Atwells Ave. Behold, another unlisted variant!
This dump is full of criers, and a Rhode Island Bottling Co. Johnston, RI blob was no exception. There are very few sodas from Johnston, and these Rhode Island examples are iconic as far as RI blobs go. With an oval slugplate, this one achieves unlisted status.
