A.B. Dunning joined the company in 1894, and was a partner since 1913. They didn't change the name of the company to include his name until 1916 though. My guess would be circa 1905-1916.

Blown in mold with tooled lip so likely pre-ABM. To me the form is a little older, say 1890ish.

Great looking bottle. I would venture to say, based upon its lip shape, it's TOC. Very late 1890s-to very early 1900s. I'd go into the 1898-1905 range. As you know, bottle dating is an inexact science and why you may see variations in timelines from other collectors. For example, a bottle may be manufactured 1 year after the patent date or ten years after the patent date. So really, it boils down to interpretation.
