Vintage Glass Thomas A Edison Flat Style Battery Oil Bottles Lot of 5Edison
These five vintage or perhaps antique glass Thomas A Edison battery oil bottles are reminiscent of the early days of the railroad in America. Battery oil was used with glass battery jars and the battery oil created a thin film on top of a conductive solution to prevent it from evaporating.
The bottles are the flat style and are in as found condition except I have rinsed out the dirt that was in them. A few of them have oil remnants coating the inside giving them the look of a rich patina. One of the bottles look as if it may have a crack on the rim but it's hard to tell since there is dried up oil residue on it. The bottles have a script signature Thomas A Edison in two different styles. The bottles measure approximately 4-5/8" tall by 2-1/8" across.
These are a great collectible to add to your vintage bottle or train collection.
