Antique bottle

Antique Bottle from my watercolour sketch book. Just a doodle. I have a nice little collection of antique bottles from my mother. Interesting that we have so many plastic bottles available today, yet something about these little bottles endure.

I think this one was originally used for Minard's Liniment, for soothing penetrating pain relief from arthritis and muscular aches. From their website, it appears they no longer use these delightful bottles. I wonder how old this bottle might be?

Count my blessings that I don't need to use it but good to know about it in the event that I ever do.

Private Collection: River John, Nova Scotia
