    I can find a close bottle, but no lid (heck, I don't even know what this style of lid is called.)

    I used to have these back in the 70's I beleive they were spice bottles, because they had a the plastic insert that was connected to the top of the cap. My brother and I used to put vinigar and baking soda inthese and watch the caps blow off.

    Look for Lab supplies on Google --they have something similar.

    Exactly that. Its a bottle with an airtight cap on it.

    I've searched and search (mostly lab supplies actually) the only square bottles I find are called French bottles and they seem to only come with screw caps.

    Nope, the ones I had growing up were square, and some were round. I would try looking in antique stores too.

    You know come to thing of it... they kind of remind me of the old salad dressing bottles. The ones were you make your own with and mix up the oil, vinegar... it has the same type of plastic sealing top.

    By the way, the really large ones make great pickle jars for making your own. :p

    My guess is that these would have probably had ground glass stoppers, rather than the more modern plastic seal type stoppers. These were produced in a variety of sizes and shapes for chemical reagents as well as medicines. I have some round ones (currently holding spices) and some liter-sized bottles, but no square ones.

    Uhmm... Apothecary jars and bottles were made in round and square styles and all vintage ones had ground glass stoppers. Check out the link I posted above.

    I'm pretty sure that these are new bottles, not antiques, I also scoured eBay, but found nothing that was spot on.

    Perhaps I'm just seeign things, but am I the only one who thinks it looks like a glass apothecary jar with a plastic stopper (not a lid) in place of a glass stopper?

    I think it's a plastic stopper too -- just no idea where to find the stopper. I found the bottle (but it comes with a cork).

    I had looked for some to use for display in the kitchen as well as pickling. I do remember seeing different style glass stoppers, some were flat as in the picture Juno posted so I know there are some out there. It is always possible that they replaced the stopper but I don't see the purpose for doing so. It might just take some time to find the correct stopper... Patience grasshopper. ;)

    I have one of those in my garage. It's about 2 - 3 inches tall. It has a glass threaded stopper.

    If all else fails you can make the stoppers out of resin or have someone machine some on a lathe.

    I have found square ones that are close but don't have the cap. Got a pick of your Wile E.? I may have something close here.
