A (4 1/16 tall) beautiful antique MILK GLASS colored COSMETIC bottle put out by the OWL DRUG Co. What makes this bottle spectacular is that it comes with its original ROSE WATER paper label! It is VERY RARE to find one of these bottles that still retains the original paper label!
This is a very early hand B lown I nto M old bottle (BIM) with a tooled top, dating it all the way back to very early 1900. Bottle embossed : The Owl Drug Co. , with embossed picture of an owl perched on a druggists' mortar, stirring a pestle. The mortar is embossed with " TODCO / TRADE MARK ". TODCo = The Owl Drug Co.
Condition : Bottle is in EXCELLENT CLEAN condition. It has some traces of wear and aging, nothing significant, NO cracks, chips, dings, damage, etc. The embossing is a little blurred as most of these milk glass owl bottles you see have the embossing like this, a little blurred, washed out, smudged looking as milk glass has a thicker consistency than clear glass so when blown into a mold, it doesn't fill a mold as well as clear glass does which is why most of these are smooth looking, weakly embossed owls.
The label is in good condition, PLEASE SEE PICTURE for overall idea how the label looks and reads. Age : A hand-blown bottle (Blown-In-Mold = BIM) with a tooled-top, ca. For years we wondered what came in these rarely seen white owl drug company bottles?
Here you have it: Rose Water. The label goes on to say in part, "Distilled Rose Water is very beneficial for the skin and an excellent eye water". So there you have it, a cosmetic medicinal product. It makes sense as the white milk glass does give the impression of cleanliness, purity, the unblemished look that would result from using this product.
