Nice find! I've seen these around before but not sure what they contained. McCormick is a food company that still exists today, their name is common to see on spice and extract bottles. I think yours is thought to be a poison bottle by some people due to the shape and colour but I don't know if anyone knows for sure what it contained.

"This is a vintage McCormick & CO cobalt blue triangular shaped bottle. The bottle has in raised letters "McCormick & CO Balto. Patented July 8th 1902". The bottle features a Bee from the "BEE BRAND" of McCormick. The bottle contained Laudanum, in an alcohol suspension. Laudanum was used for many ailments. Laudanum is a very addictive and dangerous drug, thus the odd shaped, blue bottle with raised lettering acted as a warning of what was inside. Most of the bottles manufactured during this time period which contained dangerous substances, or poison, were often made of blue glass.

McCormick manufactured 2 versions of this bottle - the earlier version is a cork top (1890s - 1910) and the later version was a screw top (1910 - 1920s) This bottle is the cork top version, but there is no cork. The bottle measures 2 7/8" high and each of the 3 sides measures 1 1/2" wide."

I have a Gold Medal Flavoring Extract embossed label 5.5 inches tall 1.5 across with a head at the top maybe Indian or women can't find it listed. Any ideas. Thanks
You have to post a picture if you can. I have seen Gold Medal flavoring extract before but not with a woman or native American embossed. I would love to see it.
