Help! Found this at the antique store the other day and haven’t been able to ID it. Liquor bottle shape, embossed opossum with 6 round dots on the bottom inside of a circle. Seam lines are on a diagonal and the lip looks tooled to me. Any ideas? Thank you!

Looks more like a Turkey to me, as in Wild Turkey 101. Not sure of their starting production year but may be another Avenue to its identity.

Hi kelsynlutz,

Just a little bit of further information concerning your bottle.
-
Yours appears to be one of the earlier varieties which was replaced by the type depicted in the image below.
The new design was registered in the UK in 1912.

-

The advertisement from an edition of the Pacific Wine, Brewing & Spirit Review dated November 30, 1914.
It can be accessed via the following link:


It would suggest that the new design had been introduced to the US at sometime between 1912 and 1914
