Great finds. That Snake Oil goes well on ebay. Clark Stanely moved from TX to Providence RI in the very early 1900's (1905) and begun selling his snake oil to the masses. Although he was selling em before that. They sell well on ebay. I sold one last month for about $45. List it as a RI bottle it helps. Check out Wikipedia for some other good info. Well done digging.

Clinton, I would be willing to part with the Snake Oil bottle, do you mind a slight haze inside near the corner? Otherwise , there is no physical damage that I can see, and it's not sick. If you still want it, do you have any bottle books for trade, like poison bottle workbook, or red book for jars, etc....let me know what you have and if you want I can post more pics. Thanks, Paul

Looks like the same stopper that is on my Empress Josephine toilet water bottle out of Dayton, Ohio. Then too, I am blind as a bat, could be wrong. I dug this bottle with this stopper still intact, could not believe it survived as it did.

Must have been a common thing. I have somewhere an old ad for the Sanitol that shows this on it. Maybe it's a manufacture thing? You know, like WT would do.
