Can anyone tell me the age of this bottle and what it contained. Seams stop before the neck. Value?

Highly unlikely it's pre 1900. some people seem to think that since the crown top was invented in 1892 there non ABM Bottle must be from 1890's. Crown tops never got popular until after 1900's & with help of the ABM over time started making them more popular. I've seen tooled top or hand finished tops like yours exist into the 1920's.

in 1904 & 05 Ransley was selling Mineral Water. This looks more like a Mineral Water Bottle. LEON.
