In the last half of the 19th century, barbers filled their own bottle with hair tonic, hair oil, water, witch hazel, bay rum, shampoo and rose water. The bottle came in distinctive colors and shapes so the barber could identify what was in each one.
These bottles stopped being made after the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act made it illegal to refill non-labeled bottles.
This vintage crisp clear and white hobnail milk glass vanity/barber bottle came from the estate of an older woman that remembers it in her bathroom growing up filled with shampoo.
It measures 4 3/4" x 4 1/4" with no chips or cracks.
The original stopper is missing
