That's certainly an interesting one, can't say I've seen many others like it. Does the seam go all the way through the lip of the bottle? Will help narrow down the time period a little at least.

Given the handle I have to assume this was some kind of sauce, dressing, etc. Something that would've been poured on/in to something, and that you didn't need a large amount of (hence the size).

Thanks for responding! The seam does go all the way to the top. We found 4 of these bottles and they are ~8” tall.

The seam going through the top indicates that the bottle was made in a mold in a machine, and is post-1915. My guess would be 1930s-1960s, but can't nail down an exact year. I'd also still guess something like a vinegar, salad dressing, etc.

Thanks! They are relatively thick if that matters. We found a few other bottles (and artifacts) nearby that were screw tops. A couple had interesting designs.

Thanks! That could make sense since we are in New England.

Syrup was my first thought also. I find many of these. very common in my opinion. I usually leave behind. Leon.

hard to pinpoint a year unless it has some date #'s on bottom that can be deciphered. Leon.
