I've been intrigued by these for years especially since I had never recovered one in 30 years of digging, diving and detecting.
Looks like I found a winner from 1875, too bad is what not whole, really would've made my day. It is a Cherry Toothpaste.
These Gosnells lids are unfortunately generally very common world wide and worth around $30 in good condition, These have a great pictorial . Your part lid would date to around 1880 and the blue one pictured could go back to the late 1860,s
This is another one from my grandmothers collection that I inherited. She wasn't big into bottles, but she was a whiz when it came to collecting antiques in general.
I managed to snap a few...

What a suprise find when this came out of the mud. Other than a few cracks and a chipped lip not a bad find. Cobalt slip really held up.
Yes, Iowa. Thanks for the feedback.
You might be better off just buying a tumbler on Ebay. At least then you'll have it if you need more tumbling in the future.
Iím curious what company made this style bottle. Honeycomb shaped design at shoulder and base.
sorry... i was wanting photos of bottles for photography chemistry... so bottles that were used in a darkroom... i don't think these were...
