Small PD&Co (Parke Davis?) bottle found at 1880s miner's supply store site - help to identify use?


We are currently excavating to build a new house in Newcastle, Australia. We recently learned that in the 1880s a miner's supply/ general store was located at our site. We are not sure how long it traded although by the 1940s it was gone. The builder found this small bottle today and we'd love to learn what its contents would have been, and to have it roughly dated.

It is very small, only 5cm high, amber coloured glass and on the bottom embossed with:

PD & Co


Any information would be greatly appreciated!
