    New Guy, New Bottle ID

    Howdy all, I had to pick up this old west looking whiskey bottle. I am not a collector but wanted one for my western theme. The bottle is supposed to be a Victorian Purple 3 piece whiskey bottle. I can see the three piece seams and the seam goes up the neck but does not go up the mouth part. There is also a very slight purple shade to it.There are numerous air bubbles throughout the bottle. I am hoping it can be dated to at least the old west era between 1865-1885. It also says "30 fl ounces" which tells me it may be post 1900.

    With the ounces I'd guess closer to the 1915 era. LEON.

    The slight purple shade is sun colored amethyst.
