Dr. D. Jayne's Medicinal Bottle

While fossil hunting I came across this blue bottle probably from the early 1900s.  It had some sort of medicine(?) from Dr. Jayne's Family Medicines (founded 1831).  The company lasted over 100 years. Learn more about the operation HERE

The bottle has a seam line going to the lip which is a sign that it is machine made.  So it was made after 1905 or so.  The aqua glass was used till about the 1930s so it was before then.  Someone listed a picture of a bottle that looks similar to this one back in 2005 on Antique-Bottles.Net
