Subject: glass measuring bottle

Hi, I have a number of clear green glass bottles. They have, down the side, measurements. Some have table spoon embossed on them and some have teaspoon embossed on them They are rectangular in shape and measure approx 6 1/2 inches (tablespoon one) and 5 1/2 inches (teaspoon one). It has no markings on it. I was wondering if you could give me any idea of age, use, value, etc. Thank you -- --

Below is a picture of a 1941 Prescription Bottle. These were common and most with the markings like yours were made around or after 1900.  Digger

Here is another example: a 1913 Prescription bottle

Bottle designers have been adding graduated markings to druggist bottles for a long time.  Here's an example patented in 1866
