Old bottle, bluish glass

edited February 12 in Question and Answer

No marks. Measures 5 1/8" tall x 1 11/16" wide x 11/16" front to back. All four sides are concave, with the (front?) deeper concave. Side seams extend up to middle of neck. Holds approx a little over 6 tsp of fluid up to the shoulders. Limited number of tiny air bubbles in the glass. If it looks like the neck is crooked, it is.

Any ideas as to age? Thank you.

    Very early 20th century. this rectangular body form was widely used for medicine but one also sees the type used for flavorings and extracts


    This picture below, from an eBay auction, shows a set of flavoring bottles. They are machine made so a bit later:
