Description

A very nice old amber bottle, with an unusual stopper.  Embossed on the side is Methyl Orange.  The bottle is marked on the bottom T.C. W. Co. for T.C. Wheaton Glass Co. of N.J.  They made bottles beginning in 1888 especially laboratory, chemical, and drug bottles.

There are two indented lines in the stopper, I believe these are to be lined up with the notches on the neck of the bottle, to control the amount of liquid used.  One line on the stopper is larger than the other.

This bottle is in very good condition, no chips or cracks, several very tiny nicks on the inner edge of the opening.  The pointed area on the stopper may look to be broken off, but I think it is made that way due to the seam showing.  This bottle is approx. 4 inches tall, and 1 1/2 inches across the bottom.
