Default ACE Bottle

I found a bottle with the ace of spades on the front and some white powder inside. Where do I check for how old it is and what it is worth? Here are a couple of pics of it. Any help would be appreciated.

Default I think its..

I collect old bottles and I think I have seen that bottle before. I think it is a Dye product for coloring textiles. I saw one selling for 5.00-10.00 range. Nice find

Check out this link. Looks like the same bottle. Says it was shoe polish, but that doesn't explain the white powder......

Is there a maker's mark on the bottom? If so I may be able to date it.
