Nice find! I've always wanted to dig one of those, found plenty broken but none whole. Most of the ones I see are embossed "carbolic acid", not sure how common the ones without that embossing are.
Thanks , ya I was almost shocked to see it kind of roll out of the dirt bank . Much like yourself I’ve seen necks / tops / parts of broken ones , but this is the first whole one I was lucky enough to dig . And yes, I’ve seen the Carbolic Acid ones , they are almost identical to this one except for the Carbolic Acid embossing down the front .

This is as close as I've ever come to an intact poison:

I'll keep lookin', though! They are exceptionally cool looking bottles, methinks; and cobalt blue glass is stunning.

That broken fellow is a crier, especially since it's a T. Eaton Drug Co., Ltd. poison bottle. It will have Eaton's E in a diamond trademark on the base.
