Wyeth bottle opinion on date

I posted this in the fav thread, now I'm asking. Does this make sense and where are the holes in the theory if it doesn't? Does the embossing mean there was a separate patent that I cant find?
Thanks, Eric

OK, I picked one and here’s why.
It’s one of the few I have left that I dug as a kid.
The site history of the family there dated from 1833-1930.
I got permission from the Town after the historical and conservation people dug it (all town land now)
The bottle I figure can be dated to within 4-6 months, I found the patents online.

This is it people with Pat May 16 1899 w/label sample.


Cool right?
The one I dug states PAT APPD FOR on the base. The application date was April 20 1899 and granted May 16 1899. Give it a few months to deplete old stock and change the base part of the molds and maybe some other variables such as a pre order of molds and I think 6 months is a safe bet.
Not bad for a 110 year old bottle.

Here’s a later copycat General Chemical Company, I think 1916-20 to allow for the patent to expire. It's still BIM though.


These are the patents.

BOTTLE

CAP

My concern is that the 1-12 and arrow or embossment aren’t shown on the patents.
Oh well.

    Sounds quite logical and correct to me. But then again,,,, I'm an old, thick headed curmudgeon who always agrees with everyone in order to stay out of trouble. Really, sounds good. I have never seen the imposter before and like it a bunch.

    Jim Sinsley will buy or trade for WAW-WAW, Owls, "Littles", Oddities, Santa Ana, CA. or Coeur d' Alene, ID. bottles.

    Yeah, me, three,

    I don't think so, Eric. Holy hobbleskirts, we've seen time & again that the finished products often varied widely from the Patent Drawings.
