I think the tall one is like, olive oil, flavoring extract or similar. It's not what I collect but I dig about a half dozen of those a year. The glass lid is the oldest, followed by the med, and the others are late 20s - 1930s.

Definitely not an OI bottle. I hate it when bottle makers don’t put a mark on their bottles. But good luck on finding information on it!

Many times, old magazine and newspaper ads that show food and other products are a big help in ID'ing and dating bottles. Studying shapes, styles and labels too. In this case, you'd need *really* old ads.

My grandfather worked for years at Owens-Illinois Bridgeton NJ plant in the 1960-70s. Its still there.
Sadly when it closed the whole city went down hill.

10-4 O-I was a MAJOR player in the bottle manufacturing world for many years.

scroll down to page 5 of 17 (their page 86) listed under “Pharmaceutical and Proprietary” as an “Extracts” bottle.
