Found this quart bottle and it has me confused, it looks like a milk but there is no ridge on the inside of the mouth (possible a bail top closure?) the base has J 40 very faint and of course the applied top and being square. Anyone have any info on this ie what it was used for, age etc. The bottle looks like it had been partially buried so will clean it up as time allows

Thanks that gives me a new direction to search in, as to age around 1900 or so or were they making this style later?

The body/color/base looks around 1900, as you said, but the top looks earlier. Oddball piece, for sure.

It's like a cathedral pickle mated with a milk and this was the result!:) Haven't found anything like it yet.
