Vintage apothecary bottle from the late 1890's to early 1920's. Contained Oleum Gossypii Seminis (Oil of Cottonseed). Cottonseed oil was frequently used to make soft soaps for medicinal uses, such as camphorated soap liniment. This is an older bottle with an unusual pouring top and a cap that could be used for measuring (?) out the oil. The cap, which is loose, has a ground inner lip that mates with a ground surface on the bottle. The cap has a couple of flea bites on one edge. The cover glass over the paper label is missing. The bottle, which is 9" tall and 3 1/4" in diameter, may be European in origin.
