It would be easier to tell you what you have if you could load a picture. It sounds like your bottle was made 1900 or newer.

Hair tonic. 1920s-50s. Fitch's is still made, but in plastic now. REAL barber shops still have it, "styling salons" do not.

Old fitch actually wanted to be a doctor but his family didnt have the loot..so he became a bit of a quack making hair oils and liniments 1890-1950s

There is a Dr. S S Fitch 707 Broadway New York. Joe has some of his pontiled meds. I'm not sure if this one is related (because of them being pontiled).
