    Cobalt Apothecary jar ????

    I dug this jar tonight and not sure what it is at all. I知 digging in a turn of the century to about 1930s dump. It is early machine made sloppy mold lines very thick the inside of the top is ground so definitely had a lid probably broke and that why they threw it out. Any help would do I知 puzzled on this one I知 thinking apothecary but not sure could be a weird unmarked bromo knock off thanks for any help .

    Never seen one like that before, but I'm guessing you're correct in guessing that it's a bulk apothecary jar. The wear on the base suggests that it was used for a long time before being thrown out.

    CanadianBottles that is what I'm guessing. I have never seen one like it either it is a very neat cobalt piece to add to the collection.
