    Look on the sides of the bottle, there should be to lines (mold seams). See if they go all the way up the bottle to the lip. If the mold seams go all the way up the bottle it was made after 1900. Anything before the lip was made according to were the seam stops. (Dates May Defer). And i know for sure it's a beer bottle. A very nice Aqua. Thanks for showin

    I am always amazed at the number of pre-prohibition breweries existed. But I guess there were more bakers, butchers and grocers at the time also because the neighborhood residents did not have the means nor desire to travel far for these items, and were also limited by loyalties to local and ethnic suppliers.

    Not many of these pre prohibition brewers survived to be post prohibition brewers, which puts nice ones like this one very high on the coolness scale. Good Find!
