How old is this bottle and what was it for?

Found this bottle on a bike trail in SW Ohio. Amber with raised bumps. It has screw lid tracks on the neck. Very faint seam running top to bottom. The only mark in the bottom is a tiny circle with what looks like a capital i in it (or a 1, I can’t tell).


  • About all one can say is that this is a mid 20th century food (possibly oil or sauce) or household product bottle. The mark on the base could very well be that of Owens-Illinois which manufactured an expansive line of generic bottles for all uses...
