A photo of the base may help with dating this, but looks like late 1920's or very early 1930's to me. Worth very little unfortunately.

The bottle is actually clear, it's the contents that are colouring it gold. It's not one that I'm familiar with personally, but I'd agree with Nhpharm that it dates to the 20s or 30s most likely.

It has coated the inside of the bottle. If you look horizontally through the base, you will see the true color of the bottle. If you opened the bottle and washed the contents out, the entire bottle would be clear.

Nice bottle...as stated it is clear and not worth much but I would keep it. Oil the cap to help preserve it.
I have seen older spohns compound bottles from around 1900 or so. What’s nice is to display yours with an older and possibly newer version.
I think that it’s a dog medicine for Distemper.

The bottom has Diamond Circled, I believed Ohio Glass mark. Need to research, I am a bit behind in current bottle research. If I remember correctly I am thinking Ohio Glass. There is also a 7, 8 & 5. I see the clear horizontally. So awesome to learn this. Thank you!!

Saw this horizontally through base. Not certain I am answering you all correctly. Gosh just new to forum. Guess I will learn.
