    Help Identifying

    Hi All,
    I'm new to the site and I recently found this bottle while walking through a freshly plowed farm field. I've tried to identify it using antique bottle websites, etc... and have had no luck. It appears to be an older prescription type bottle from what I can tell, late 1800's maybe. There are no markings on the bottle at all. Can anyone help identify what I've found? If better pictures are needed please let me know. Thanks.

    Could be a shoe or stove polish bottle. No markings at all?

    No embossing at all, no numbers, no letters....I assume maybe at some point it had a paper label or something. There are some bubbles in the glass, seams that run up each of the sides and stop halfway up the neck, flat bottom.

    Great, thanks a lot for your expertise bass assassin and epackage, I appreciate it. Is there any value in these bottles? There was quite a bit of broken glass and pottery around the field so I'm thinking of going back for another visit.

    Honestly, no, not that one. However, the time period of your spot has good potential.
