I found this in a christian mission store that is run on donations. Underneath some 1980s stereos, old books and questionable clothing, I found this aqua bottle. It is Dr. D. Jayne's Tonic Vermifuge, 242 Chest. St. Phila. I know this was supposed to cure worms or something, but what was in it? How old do y'all think it is?

I'll try to take more pictures tomorrow.

Hard to tell, but it looks early machine made, dating to early 1900s. A vermifuge was supposed to get rid of worms. Jayne was in business a long time with a lot of pontiled examples out there. Nice find.

Weird lip. We'd need to see the mold seam on the side but my guess is the same as Sandchip... machine made.

Sandchip is correct, it is early ABM, probably circa 1915 give or take 5 years. There might be a trademark on the base that could help narrow the age.
