I found a brown bottle with a fish and fish scales embossed over the entire screw top bottle.
I am thinking cod liver oil but have yet to identify it...anyone know a similar looking bottle ?

Hi Jeanie,

I have the same bottle as you do, it is indeed a cod liver oil bottle, McKesson Laboratories. They date to the 1920's - 1930's. I know this post is old, so I hope you see it!

Here's a link with a few other great bottles as well as the cod liver oil bottle.

Digger Odell question from December


Hi, Just saw a bottle I recently got at auction written up on your site. It is the amber Mckesson Laboratories cod liver oil bottle with the fish scales and fish. This one has a intact label, faded but still readable. It is unopened, and leaks a little. My question - Should I open and dispose of contents before selling? Is it worth much? and what is the approx age? Thanks tammy4302

I would not dump the contents unless it was absolutely necessary. These date to the 1920-30 period and with a label ought to bring $25-30. Digger.
