My moms Bestfriends Boyfriend Grabbed me this from a local mill they are gonna tear down = ) i love it already but i would like further information..judging by its shape and the upside down logo id think it went in a dispenser? i guess? it has a dish that fits it in no way with it.but it was made by the same company the dish states .

(in center circle on bottom)(sanor)
(Under circle)(Rochester Germicide Co.Rochester N.y.pat pending)

The bottle says

Hi Eric, It had a steel rack-type dispenser that was made to hang on a wall. I think the dish was part of the setup. You can find the metal part on eBay once in a while, then you will have the whole thing. The upside-down embossing is cool. It was a disinfectant soap/sanitizer. ~Jim

I dug that dish once a long time ago and never found out what it was....now I know. Is the dish embossed, too? I can't remember if mine said anything, had to be at least 20 years ago. I don't even know what I did with it.
