    What would this have held and how old?

    Hey everybody! This bottle is thinner at the bottom (starts getting thinner from the middle down) and has air bubbles in the bottle and on the bottom. There is also a ripple look in the glass. How old is this bottle and what would it have held? Is it hand blown?

    Here is a good site for bottles . Generally the mold seam on the sides can help determine the age , by how far up towards the top they run . Probably blown into a mold then the top lip was tooled.
