Hi all. I have a bottle that I'd love to know a little more about. Here it is:

BLACK CAT POLISH CO
BUFFALSO N Y

4 3/4" inches tall - 1870-1890s (the seam ends halfway up the neck).



It's a smoky-clear color. When I got it, it was grey-black and full of dirt and junk, and I cleaned it up nicely. When I bought it for 3.00 at an antique mall, it had the original cork with the metal nail (or something) in it, and a black chunk (of something?) was in the bottom. I looked up info on the bottle and all I found was a small article about the Black Cat Polish Company producing shoe and oven polish, and a warning to look up for replicas. Any info would be nice, thanks.
