Etched and sandblasted bottles were used from about the 1850s-60s until up as late as the 1920s most likely even later in some places.
I' ve seen it on beers, wines and soft drinks (codds and lamonts patents).
Your bottle bit looks familar but I can' t place it [sm=rolleyes.gif] , I' m sure someone here will tell you what it is.

Hi David,
This bottle is a De Chartreuse bottle which was a French Liquer or wine bottle.
The one I have dates around 1910.
