I know this style is typically for wine, but is this a little small for that? Some kind of liqueur, maybe? Any info on dates and place of manufacture is appreciated!

Looks European. The only wine bottles in aqua/colorless glass that I can think of is for tokaj wine from the tokaji region of Hungary/Slovakia. The tokaj bottles that are unambiguously identifiable have a glass shoulder seal marked with that name. This appears to be a half-bottle. Anyway, if it were on my shelf, that's how I would think of it.

Looks to me like it dates from the 1810's-1840's or so; appears to be dip mold blown to me. As far as contents I'm not certain off the top of my head, though I've definitely seen those before. Possibly medicine related?

I would have said American, circa around 1850, a pontiled utility form that could have held a liquid, or a powder... Would have been labeled.
