    The A. Colburn Co went out of business around 1931 so that makes it within 14 years of being a true antique. The company began in 1856 so this could be over 100 years old already.
    A sad story is that the founder of the company drowned in 1901 when his yacht sank. The good news is he had a good life before that as he had a 85 foot long yacht so he did have many good years before his passing at 67 years of age.
    I find this to be an especially attractive bottle with the ribs along the top.
    The bottle is still about 1/3rd of the way full. I wonder what the expiration date is on this.
