Hello All, I really am in the process of getting some books so I can look some of this stuff up myself, but for now I need to call on ya'll once again. A small clear 1 1/4" square x 4" tall bottle. Very lightly embossed(so much so the picture won't pick it up). On the front is an oval ring with WM R Warner&Co Philidelphia embossed all the way around the ring. In the center of the ring is a large embossed W with the( & ) sign on the left leg of the W , and Co. on the right leg of the W. What did this bottle contain? It was in a pit abandoned in 1890. Thank you, Kelley

Probably some sort of medicine.

Hi my book shows 12 pages of Warner products each on a different page, maybe someone who knows the bottle can do it but 12 pages? Hmm
Sorry
Warner has a long history from the 1800's with acquuistions and purchase of different
companies, such a Richart Hudnut, Park Davis,Schick,Smith Bros (cough drops) and more,ended up in 1982 as Warner-Lambert Co.
