Both of fluted design, with blank inset labels. The pretty fluting on these bottles are not just present for aesthetic purposes but also so that the chemist in question could grip the bottles easily with wet or slippery digits.

The bottles bear original cut stoppers and are in wonderful all round condition. As to what these vessels contained, I'm afraid your guess is as good as ours.
