Here are 3 bottles /jug I pulled from the same dump some time ago the small blue one has VICKS embossed on the side The BROWN/TAN Jug has Nassua Seltzer etched on the side And the clear one has SYS KELLERSTRAUSS embossed on it It was from about 1900 to 1913 as far as a timeline . That was one of the first items I found when I started digging this site The volume and variety of old glass I pulled from that site is greater than all the other items I dug in my life time It was truly a once in a lifetime discovery

Nice going on the bottles-more detailed pictures are always welcomed.

This might be the clear embossed details.
It could turn amethyst if left in the sun.

That certainly is a cool color I wonder if this one would also turn to that color if left in the sun Do you have any idea how long the change in color would take . Great tip thanks
