Vintage Glass Thomas A Edison Battery Oil Bottles Lot of 5 Bloomfield NJThomas A Edison
These five vintage or perhaps antique glass Thomas A Edison battery oil bottles are reminescent 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 in as found condition except I have rinsed out the dirt that was in them. A few of them have may have oil remnants coating the inside giving them the look of a rich patina. The bottles have a script signature Thomas A Edison on one side and Edison Battery Oil Made in USA Thomas A. Edison Incorporated Bloomfield, NJ U.S.A. on the reverse. The bottles measure approximately 4-1/8" tall by 1-1/2" across.
