I have heard that this is a perfume bottle.
It makes sense by the small size of the bottle.

Hello addicted - Woody and all,
We talked about "Tilly" in a previous post. There are four or more types of these. Here's a link to the other post(s):


Also, do a search on eBay for "tilly" and check the completed items. They appear every now and then.

While searching for info on "London" mustard bottles, I came across the 1824-28 price list of the Philadelphia and Kensington Vial and Bottle Factories (T. W. Dyott, Proprietor). On the list of bottles was "Haarlem Oil" at $2.00 per gross.

As I recall, Haarlem Oil was a medicament invented in Holland and later copied here. Addicted has a Dutch version, it seems.
