Are the Moroline jars with the threaded tops older, or newer, than the ones which have the four raised bumps around the top lip? - Here are a couple newer additions. Nothing uncommon I think.

1) Groves Chill Tonic.

2) Chesebrough Mfg. Co.

3) Moroline

4) Chamberlain (Plain front & back)
Bottle Madde In USA on other side.
Not sure what came in this one though.

The Chamberlain is Chamberlaine's Cough Remedy. The older ones were more fully embossed. I've never heard of Moroline before, but I imagine that the one with the bumps is probably older. I don't know why they would switch in the opposite direction.

Thanks. As I understand it, Moroline was a type of petroleum jelly that was introduced as a competitor to Vaseline. - James

A lot of the 30's bottles had the "raised bumps" closure. The metal cap had inclined tabs that tightened on the bumps when turned. I dug a dump that was mostly a 30's dump. Many of the bottles had similiar type closures. I think the screw top Morolines are newer. Just my thoughts. Buster
