    Seen this bottle before?

    Dug in the woods. There was nothing for signals and this popped out. If I had better signals to dig I would have left it but....

    I know nothing of old bottles and I doubt this to be that old either but the wife liked the color and I was wondering what used to be in it.

    Light blue, best I can make out on the screw top is Warner est 1855

    I dont know what it was but any large blue glass jar is a keeper.

    Looks like a long word under WARNER. Can you see it?

    The color on the ebay bottle looks darker and the cap is red, but could this be a close match?

    I was googling "Warner est 1855" but of course its "Warner established 1856" Big difference in a google search.

    This says "laxative" so is that Milk of Magnesia? It looks like that would be it.....
