It's an over-used title, but it gets the job done.
One of my favourite dealers at an antique store I had seen at the G.R. Bottle Show last month, and he said he'd put some more stuff in his booth.
After college yesterday I went there and saw two pontiled bottles at $5 each.
I went for this one, for the shape was interesting and so was the hing-mold line under it.
I think it is a spice bottle, made in a hinge-mold, and it sports a blow-pipe type of pontil. It also has an applied top, as expected.
It appears to have been reused, possibly for medicine.
