I picked up this Shortell & Timmons bottle today. Its the Im a grown man size flask. Lol. I was told it was from the 1890s. When I searched online I found a few that also said 1890s but one said 1915? Then I searched for the business and i see they were open from 1906-1916? At least in this one article i could find. Whatever the date it's still over 100 years old and I like the size and all the embossing on it.

I see what you're talking about. I found the same bottle with that address on it. It says State street and mine says Washington Street. Can't find any info on what year they moved?

Nice flask; and it's nice to see an honest amount of amethyst sun-coloring.
