These little milk-glass base-embossed Owl Drug jars are rarer than rare. These come in at least five sizes as unbelievable as that seems, as we have had five (5) DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT sizes at one time, but they may even come in more. This one here is one of the smaller sizes. All of the different sized ones have one-wing birds on them, we've not ever seen the newer two wing bird embossed on the base. The rumor from back in the early days of collecting Owl Drug bottles, was that these milk glass Owl Drug jars, with embossed owls on the base, had ALL come out of the Los Angeles area.
As far as I can remember there are no documented findings of them being found anywhere but in the vicinity of old Los Angeles. So that could be why there have been no new finds of these, at least that I have heard about, since the 1970's, as no one is digging heavily in L. Like it was being dug in the beginnings era of bottle collection, 1950's - 1970's. Anyway, this little jar here is RARE x 100, check it out!
