    I usually don't keep those type of bottles, not sure why I kept this one. At first look I assume a Ketchup because it has the same top typical of most Ketchups from that time Period. SO, Since you asked I looked at it again, & sure enough after wiping the dirt off & cleaning it I see what I was looking for, a small flat smooth spot within all this raised ribbing on the bottle. Whats that mean, thats were they would of put the paper label. BUT, Unexpectly I also notices some writing on it. Writing sez JOSEPH CAMPBELL CAMDEN NEW JERSEY. Joseph Campbell is well known for starting the Campbell Soup Company. He also made Ketchup & other Condiments. SO, In a nutshell I'm pretty confident this is indeed a Ketchup bottle. Probably not rare or Valuable but Kinda cool looking, even Cooler now that it's not a Slick & has a name embossed on it. LEON.

    Thanks leon, thats what i was thinking. Condiment of some kind....just didnt know which. The are hard to clean in smaller sizes, but sell well for $1 each because of their unusual shape.

    I took a look at Ron Fowlers hutchbook.com website on Hutch's & did not see mine listed or pictured so I sent Ron a Pic to add to his site. It's # MI0090.5 It's just a slight variation with differance in size & Makers Mark #'s. Below is a link to his Detroit Hutch's. A great Website, Highly Recommended if you ever need to look up Hutch information. LEON.


    P.S. Click on links in next post.
