A day in the bottle woods is definitely better then any day at work.

This one is embossed (very light) on the side panels.

My wife bet me,the deal was to do the dishes 3 nights in a row after dinner. That's my job every night. [:D]

"Infant Cordial" My wife thinks it is the "size" of the bottle that gives it the name Cordial. I told her that in those days that meant,"A comforting or pleasant-tasting medicine" Which in reality, was strong alcohol and dope.[:D] She said "oh no! they wouldn't give kids that to kids!"

"Cordial" glasses were typically small in size.
Cordials were often drank as an aperitif.
Relative to your medicine it would refer to the smooth taste and gastric soothing traits
I cant remember the exact ingredients for that one but wouldn't be surprised if it had opiates or chloroform.

don't know , I only do medicine bottles.

Maybe an inhaler. You could at least dig us a whole one. Half of that one is chewed off.
Are the ends sealed?
