I’m new to collecting and have absolutely no clue how to date this. The front of the bottle is hard to see; it reads:

MILK OF
(Trademark)
MAGNESIA

THE CHAS.H. PHILLIPS
CHEMICAL CO.
GLENBROOK CONN.

The bottom says MADE IN USA with two dashes on the left side and an M on the right.

I’ve also attached a picture showing the clear seam going all the way up the bottle.

Any information on the year this was made would be greatly appreciated! :)

Not sure on the exact dating but these tend to date from around the 1930s-40s. Not sure when exactly they switched to screw caps or when they stopped embossing them.

A very common bottle, the earlier ones are cobalt blue and they're nice to find.
