New to all this, but I' m finding it more addictive than my 15 years of metal detecting. This poor, broken into five pieces (and one more missing) bottle seems to be the oldest bottle I' ve dug. So I found all the pieces, glued it together and present it for your answer as to age, etc. its five inches long and reads KEBBLEWHITE MFG CO BUFFALO N.Y. along the side. (That K might be an ' H' .) No marks or pontil seems to be on the base. its a cloudy blue and is actually irridescent ! -Dave

Hello. I believe that Hebblewhite Mfg. Co. made shoe polish around 1890-1910. Your bottle is a shoe polish container from that period, supposedly fairly common.
