    Need help big unusual amber bottle ??

    I was out digging yesterday with my father he dug this bottle normally we would not get excited over a machine made bottle. But this one is unusually large and shaped very cool looking amber bottle. It is about 14 1/2 inches tall. Unfortunately it is not embossed except a MG on the bottom which is the Maywood Glass Company. I have googled the glass maker to see if I can find the bottle and I canít . The dump we are digging is 20s to 40s stuff . I would really just like some help trying to figure out what came in it ? Was thinking maybe a decorative wine but have never seen a Amber wine bottle In my life. Thanks for any help . We have nicknamed it the big ass amber bottle lol.

    Dang, that is a large one. It's a miracle it survived. Hopefully, someone will know something about it.

    It reminds me of this earlier melon shaped whiskey that measures roughly 8 or so inches in height. The only bottle that I can think of that resembles yours.

    Sandchip It definitely looks a little like that wish it was that bottle lol. I am thinking whiskey came in it my Dad said it could have been a decorative olive oil as well possibly

    I have one just like it, or at least very similar. Dug up on my property and found along with 1930-1950 era bottles. I'm curious too if you find out anything. Will post pics later.
