Thats cool! This jar type was patented in It's got the improved design top which was used mainly from 1870s-1890s but most common in the 1880s and early 1890s. Not one we come across too often, but not rare either. I've seen them before plenty of times. Still a great find! I've always found it cool to see people finding bottles in old walls of old homes.

Neat jar! A house near where I grew up was undergoing some renovations in the 1980's and they found 100's of labeled medicine bottles behind the walls of the house...many of them pontiled. I still have a newspaper clipping from that find.
