    The product is still around today. It's a bit hard to date as 99% of it is not in English, and if the bottle was made out of the U.S. then that it is hand-blown cannot help me much.

    But, we have an embossed and labeled bottle, still full of U-I-Oil, in its box with original pamphlet.

    The oil is a liniment. It's a very small sample bottle.

      "53" as a number appears to show up twice in the document, so I am assuming it is of some importance. I think the last four characters, on the bottom line, say something about the country of China. The first character after the 3, is country, I think. Google Translate may be able to translate the page with a good enough picture, but I am just going on my limited knowledge of Chinese.

      Thank you, Nutfield History. I saw that one can draw in a character on a translation service, and it pops out with the English word. At work, a man came to our store and spoke nothing but Chinese. He attempted to use his phone to translate, but it was very difficult to try and sell him a brand new toilet. The only person who speaks a non-European language at work, happens to speak Japanese, so that wasn't of help. LOL.
