granddaughter's find

Recently my 11 year old granddaughter found an amber bottle in the Idaho mountains. Bottle has a screw top, metal cap. Vertical seams stop below mouth. She has ID'd it as an Owens Illinois bottle, maybe 1930's, mold #9. 5 1/2" tall, maybe a half-pint capacity. Photos from all sides. I'm guessing it is a medicine bottle, but what kind?

Any help would be appreciated - she is quite interested in antiques - already!


  • Correct, Owens-Illinois is the manufacturer of this generic medicine bottle...for pharmacy or medical product. Mid 20th c.
