Need help identifying this bottle
Need some help my Dad dug this bottle years ago in a great dump all bottles were between 1860-1890. This is one I can't find anywhere on the web or eBay or this forum. It says C.A. MORRIS & Co York PA. I believe it to be a snap case mold medicine it is very crude has a applied top very crude and twisted. Any help would be appreciated is it rare what was it ? Thanks Guys and Gals

From A History of York County, 1907
C.A. Morris, druggist, founded 1823. Merged into Wm. Smith & Co. some time in the 1850s (possibly 1857).

That is a darn nice bottle! I would put it in the 1850-1860 category.In all my perplexity's and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.

Looks like it dates around 1890's to me? LEON.

Looks early smooth base to me. I'd have to agree with Screwtop on this one, 1857-1865 or thereabouts. A good, clear close-up of the top would be nice.
