    Is this an early Campana's Italian Balm bottle?

    Walking lots after a soaking rain always turns up something. I know this one's common and machine made, but is there any way of dating the design styles of Campana's bottles over the decades?

    This one has an embossed recessed panel on one face only, a single-thread screw top, and no base mark (not even a mold number).

    The company only dates back to 1927, but I'm hoping from the panel style that this is at least an early example. Any help welcome, thx.

    It's certainly not a particularly late example. I can't tell much about specifics but I'd be pretty surprised if it's post-1940s. Could definitely be from the late 20s, I don't know any specifics on the company though, never heard of it before.

    I agree. More than likely the company's first mold.

    Thanks guys. The recessed embossed panel, single-threaded screw top, and thick glass had me hoping it's closer to 1927 than 1950.
