What are these weird things my friend found in his wall?

A friend of mine is remodeling an older home in the midwest. Masons opened up a wall and found these mystery items. The bottle has a shiny residue inside; the stopper is rubber which is completely hardened and cracked. The third thing is glass, and a mystery. Does anyone here know what they are? (Bonus points if you have any idea why they might have been put inside a wall.)

Please help me find more of these boldly lettered Old Fashioned glasses

I have this Old Fashioned glass with a bold, matte black letter printed on it. It's 4" high and 3 1/4" in diameter. The bottom has bumps the size of smallish marbles. I have a suspicion that it was carried by Crate and Barrel in the 70s or 80s, because my mom has one too, and my family got a lot of decor from there when I was a kid. I'm looking for more, specifically a J or an M for my wife's birthday. (She loves having her initials on things.) Any ideas?

Please help me evoke my childhood?

Please help me find the perfect water glass. Fortunately, I know exactly what it is. Unfortunately, I can't find it anywhere in the world. Maybe because the last time I saw one was in the late 1940s? [more inside]

Egg cream? That sounds gross!

AlkaFilter: I have about a dozen vintage glass seltzer bottles. (We had a seltzer guy who came until about five years ago, and never picked up the last batch of bottles.) I'd like to refill/recharge them, but the only knowledge I have is that CO2 canisters exist for this purpose (though maybe not for this type of bottle?). Without a factory or ancient tools, do you think there might be a way to achieve this goal?
