ORIGINAL: soda bottle

Just realized I hadn't looked.in my Delaware medicine list and I found a E.T. Dillworth bottle from Wilmington Delaware in there. Funny because its spelled with 2- LL's just like I misspelled it. I'm guessing this is a Delaware bottle. Will have to do some more research.
He died at the age of 54 in 1909... He was on Second St. in Wilmington, the name should only have one "L" just like the bottle

That's a fine looking bottle. Sometimes I think somebody slipped me a dose of Mr. Dillweed's Worth Destroyer...

It could have been his wife , mother , or some other relative.
Sound about right. the bottle form is typical of the late 1880s to 1890s period.

UPDATE: 2 days ago this bottle was found in the same hole. I was like 99.9% sure the worm destroyer was a Delaware bottle, now 100% . Very excited to have discovered the first Worm Destroyer from Delaware.

Very nice.
I can add the worm destroyer to the on-line medicine guide if you want.

Yes, That would be great. Thank you for the responses.
