I found this bottle in my dad's house after he passed away so I don't know anything about it. The cardboard box it was in referred to it as a whiskey bottle so that's why I think it may be. The stopper is also a shot glass, which I find interesting. My great grandfather owned a bar so it could have been from there.
If any one has any idea the age or where it was manufactured, I would appreciate knowing.
Thanks for looking.

    I think what you have is a Backbar Bottle. 1890'S -1900'S, when saloons bought whiskey in kegs or barrels, the whiskey companies provided these bottles for the whiskey to be tranfered into. then they would dispaly on the back bar and pour out of them, then refill them as needed.

    Thanks rocker-sd. That makes sense being as my great grandfather owned a bar. I actually have 2 of these. One has a pour spout(pic 1) the other doesn't(pic 2), otherwise they look exactly the same.

    Awesome bottle from a small, pre=pro distiller.
