I believe these are generally believed to be Taylor & Moore's bears grease pomade. If yours is aqua (like it appears in the photo), these generally run $50 or less. The Worthpoint example was in a rare color.

It is quite neat and quite old! I dug one once here in Texas and was quite excited about it-still have it.

Nice looking bottle.
Could you please show more pictures of the bottle? Like the embossing, pontil, etc.
Thanks,

The best thing about this piece is that it has not been dug. It was never in the ground. And is in very near mint condition as a result. A very nice example.
