Since this one has a deep pontile that is 1/2 inch in diameter and roughly 3/32 inch deep, I am curious if it is a pre-1900 bottle.

It’s definite a pre 1900 bottle. Maybe around 1860’s

Thanks to you both. It was in a box of bottles I picked up at a local auction. I thought it looked sort of primitive. Thanks again.

There was a number of medicines that had that slogan for "man or beast". Cool bottle, anything else worthy of mentioning?.

The pontil on the bottom, the broken ring of glass, puts this likely pre-Civil War, as others have already indicated. They made this stuff up until almost the machine made (post 1900) era, so this is definitely one of the earlier ones.

Not really. A couple nice early round bottom Chianti bottles, one early Kaukauna cheese crock, and a Tankar Savings System clear glass bank w/lid. There were also 2 large, 1 medium, and 2 small brown stoneware cheese crocks too.

Also thanks to bottlecrazy & saratogadriver for your replies.
