I could use some help on this one. It's pretty plain, no embossing, but the shape of it intrigues me. It appears that the neck was freeblown, but the base is definately from mold. The lip is pretty crude, sheared, and some elongated bubbles in the swell of the ladies leg. Any ideas?

Hi,
Im thinking it looks like a type of sauce bottle.It's definitly a odd shape.It maybe a
hair tonic possibly.

Hey Norm, did you dig this or buy it? Maybe where it came from would shine some light on the mystery bottle.[8|] Kelley

Hi Kelly, I dug this bottle from a dump that yielded saltglaze stoneware, Warner's, pontiled medicines, approximate span of 1840 - 1890. I don't think it's a fantastic find or anything, it's just driving me nuts. lol I haven't come across another like it.
