on the weekend poked around at the lot where I found the flat top cans earlier this year , no soda cans found but did find an older area of mostly household glass items from the 30's or 40's era

found one of those certo bottles , broken jammer head , several small screwtop glass bottles , broken ink well , small glass jars , several crown jar lids

2 salt and pepper shakers with damage , a bunny and an old lady .

found the small flower design plate on another nearby lot , its marked " vitrified ivory , wood & sons England supplied by Cassidy's limited "

not sure of age but could be from a nearby hotel

also found this bottle off a road here in some thick evergreen trees

its for Fellows Syrup which was some sort of tonic remedy originally from New Brunswick but appears to have been sold nationwide , not sure I've ever found one before

its an aqua coloured screw top bottle , thinking 30's or 40's era but not really sure , marked ' D " on the bottom

Just by color and look, I'd say it's probably 1920s.

does seem very early for a roadside find ,

its the same road ( but not the same location ) I found that small farm dumping earlier this year , had found a couple older corked bottles on an embankment near the site of an old farm but then nothing else nearby

so that road has been there for some time and some of the lots off it are very old , spot where I found it is forested near a hill , but didn't appear to be anything else nearby other than a couple semi modern broken beer bottles

I don't see too many of those screw-top Fellows bottles. They're extremely common in the cork top version but I guess the company was in decline by the 20s or 30s. I'm not sure if I even knew they came in a screw top version before seeing yours.
