Im guessing 1890-1910?
When did they make this bottle?
Was it for wine?
There is no mold seems on it.

Hey rocky,

Welcome to the forums and thanks for bringing by that nice etched beer.

Old William Painter painter invented the crown cap in 1892. Is it applied or tooled?

The etching is meant to look like Hops, http://blog.mlive.com/kalamabrew_impact/2008/05/large_Hops_Cone.jpg so mighta been a Barley Wine, but more likely a nice Pilsner.
