I was walking on the shoreline in Charleston SC and came across this bottle. Sadly it has no markings of any kind to help me Identify its age or origin. Can anyone help.

height just under 7inches
Width 3 inches
Capacity between 140 and 150ml allowing for cork.

Thanks

It's machine-made, so probably 1920s-ish. These would typically be referred to as whiskey flasks but I've seen similar ones marked for medicine and flavouring extracts as well.

Yes nice find! The seam on the bottle tells us it was made in two halves, so probably 1920’s to 1930’s, but lovely find nonetheless. Looks like a whiskey flask, I love finding these but even better if they’re embossed!
