After searching online the only examples of this bottle that I could find were pale yellow in color. I couldn't seem to locate any detailed information regarding the contents of the tonic itself. I'm really unsure if this is pre-1900 or later bottle so please forgive me if it it is post 1900. The label has seen better days but under strong light, and in my case using a pair of reading glasses, much of the lettering that is remaining can be read.

The bottle is 10 3/8 inches tall and 3 inches wide at the base. On the bottom is Crownford China Co. Inc. with a "C" in a circle in the center. On the back embossed is "Jaynes" on one side and "Tonic" on the other side with "Good for Mother and Child" in the center. There appears to be barely visible opposing seams on each side. What appears to be a possible chip on the base is actually an air bubble. Below are several pictures of the bottle. Any, and all, information anyone could share about the bottle, its original contents, or if it has any significant collector value will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I cannot date your bottle, but I found an ad from 1912 that tells about Dr. Jaynes products.

Your bottle says expectorants at the the top, so I enlarged the bottom of the ad.

Did a search of the forum. Crownford China Co was a repro importer back in the 1970s apparently. Didn't find a Jaynes repro but warners repro and at least one other repro described as pretty realistic looking.

Thanks. It sure looks old, especially the label. From what you found out it is more than likely a reproduction. Thanks again.
