Found this in a wall I have done a little research seems to be 1890 to 1905
Hamilton Coffee and Spice Company Ltd. apparently they had a glass factory so they would have made their own bottles. Some residue in the bottle original cork.

Nice find. Curious about what it was doing in the wall? Might find some other bottles wherever it was located.

Pretty cool bottle. My research tells me that it was manufactured in Ontario, Canada between 1888 and c. 1910. People really like intact labels. Make sure the roaches don't get to it! As for why it was in the wall, who knows . . . I've heard builders would use whatever as wall infill/"insulation".

Fortunately we don’t have Roaches thanks for that info it expands on what I know I be looking all the time now it’s like hitting one good golf shot it’s enough to keep you at it.
