How tall? It IS some type of medicinal/apothecary. I see screwthreads at the top so it may originally had a screwcap that went over that stopper thing that looks to maybe be a tincture top (like we used to apply Mercurochrome with).

Maybe a medical person can chime in with more info.

10-4 Wish I could tell you more about your bottle but I've not seen or dug one like it.

Ive never seen anything like that either, I want to say it was for medicine and not blood though. Nice find!

I think you're right. https://www.antiquesnavigator.com/d-...dispenser.html

It's missing the iron band but still should be worth a pretty penny

It might be, it is very unusual. There are collectors of old medical devices and I bet they would be interested in this one.

I showed the photo of the bottle to my girlfriend and she went on Google and found this



Looks like this particular bottle sold for $51 dollars.
