Looks to me to be some type of beverage/juice bottle with a crown-type bottlecap closure from the 1960s or newer. Is that a 6 and a 0 on the 3 o'clock position? If so, the year would be 1960. Owens-Illinois usually always date-coded their bottles. Milks usually have larger-diameter spouts.

I've tried to enlarge it and if it's 80 then that is most likely the year, many bottles had that date code style even then. BTW have you noticed how few products now are in glass bottles? Very few, all plastic now. They better not put beer in plastic though.
