    We found this miniature bottle in the grounds of our property, which is an old cottage circa mid C17th, in Buckinghamshire, England. It has what appears to be a crown embossed on the base, but not sure of its date or use. We do know that adjoining our property once stood a chapel, so wondered if it could be of religious use. Any help in this would be greatly appreciated.

      Sorry, it's only a regular medicine ("physick") vial. I don't have any info on the stamp. Perhaps the apothecary who put up the meds also officially served the crown's physician?
