Thank you, CanadianBottles. I will never know for sure what my bottle contained, but some sort of medical treatment is the best guess I've had in a long time. I tried for a long time to squeeze this into a soda category, but even the British collectors didn't recognize it.

Yours looks very similar to the Elliman's Royal Embrocation veterinary med bottles, only much earlier. I don't know if it has any connection to the US citrate bottles.

According to this site: https://mhc.andornot.com/en/permalink/artifact8188 the product was first sold in 1847 however, so it's possible that your bottle is an earlier, unembossed Elliman's bottle. It's also possible that the shape was a more common one in the mid-19th century but by the early 20th century it only remained in use by Elliman's because the shape had come to be associated with that product.
Coincedently I got that Ellimans Bottle boxed up somewhere. LEON.

The green slug plate is a very attractive bottle. The wires look pristine. Very nice pick up.

I need to go to a bottle show. It's probably better than stalking ebay all day. :p

Excellent pickups! I am a fan of the blue beer to the left.
Still loads of great deal at the shows. Just not paying s/h is a large savings nowadays. I like to have the bottle in my hands before a purchase. I'm old school, you know, face to face, talking not texting. Hard to see the real bottle with mere pictures.

I really miss going to bottle shows, hopefully they'll be back up here last year. Been cancelled for a while now due to covid, but even before that the ones I'd been going to in Montreal had gotten terrible in terms of almost everything being overpriced and almost no actual diggers seeming to set up tables anymore. I just moved to a new city though and the show here is quite famous, so hoping I get a chance to go before long. I went to the first record show I've been to since the pandemic the other day, so that's a good sign. Are the shows running again down where you are?

Just went to Guns n Roses, Dead and Co. 3 days in a row. Every thing opened up.

Hopefully we'll be seeing the same thing here before too long. Most things here have opened up by this point, I'm not sure if the shows are even prohibited anymore, so hopefully the big one that's usually held in the spring will go ahead next year if the organizers don't decide to cancel.

I got my fingers crossed for you and fellow collectors of the Great White North.
