    Any information on this bottle would be much appreciated! 10.5 Inches tall, 4 Inches wide at widest point. Beautiful dark olive glass, very rough hewn, textured glass, bubbles, indentations. Drip lines near neck. A square made of 9 dots is on the base with an asterisk in the middle. Bottle sealed with portion of contents evaporated or having leaked. Main Label: "Genuine Holland, GENEVA J.D.K & Z. John De Kuyper & Son, Rotterdam". Lower Label: "Renauld & Neiderstadt, New York. Formerly Renauld Francois & Co. Sole Agents for the United States". Top of seal has De Kuyper & Son w/ an anchor like the label. I don't think its pontiled. Gin? Age? Faint red stamp on main label indicate it was imported from Holland.

      My guess would be 1900-1919. I found one reference to this exact bottle stating that the trademark was registered with the Secretary of State for the State of New Hampshire on Feb. 14, 1907. So safe to assume sometime around 1907-1919 (when Prohibition took effect).
