    Amber bottle. New to hunting bottles.

    I am in central Mississippi. I normally hunt petrified wood in one particular area. But I found a neat bottle near my hometown. Is there any way you ladies and gentlemen could help me out identifying thisClick image for larger version.

    Also it is about as tall as a credit card. About 1 1/2" thick. The glass has bubbles in it.

    It has the shape of an old snuff bottle maybe. Love that amber color, nice find!

    I think the square ones were shoe polish bottles also.

    As some of the oters have said, I'm pretty sure that it's a snuff jar.

    Thanks for the info! I tried to ID it with internet pages by myself but wasn't sure what I was looking at. I do appreciate it.
