Probably meant to regulate the amount that came out. Hot Sauce, Absorbine jr. etc

I like it! Pretty nice for a 1940s bottle. I’d even say it’s somewhat unique.

Hair tonic such as Vitalis came in similar bottles if memory serves.

Try Google search term "1940's hair tonic bottle" and check out the images. Maybe try 1930's as well. Good luck.

Brylcream... Vitalis... the choice of all the most popular greasers.

But, but, Vitalis advertisements specifically mocked "that greasy kid stuff." Here's proof with Bart Starr:

Wildroot hair tonic ads featuring "Fearless Fosdick" did as well while spoofing "Dick Tracy" cartoons:

I lived through that era. In fact, I think I used the Wildroot product in my mid or late teens. Before that, during my crew-cut and "flattop" phase, I used a product called Butch Wax (I had no idea that there was a sexual connotation to the word at the time).
