However, there are definitive trends in shapes that mark a bottle as very likely to have been used primarily or originally as a container for high alcohol spirits intended for internal consumption, "medicinal" or otherwise.

To be fair, ethyl alcohol was (and is) one of the better preservatives for products intended for internal consumption or external use.

These examples help point out the vague line that existed between liquor/spirits and medicinal products during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Bottles known to date as late as 1974 still had that inscription on them; click 1970s liquor bottle to see an example which is also covered later on this page.: Canada followed a similar trend as the U. in the gradual implementation of alcohol prohibition with the various Province's going "dry" between 19, though there was never a "national prohibition" passed in Canada.

By time National Prohibition was fully implemented in the U. in January of 1920, the only area north of Mexico that was not totally "dry" was the Province of Quebec (Unitt 1972).) The push for individual State and eventually National Prohibition came right at the time (1910s) that bottle makers were making the transition from mouth-blown to fully machine-made bottles.

It is an almost absolute fact that if an American made liquor bottle is mouth-blown it pre-dates National Prohibition.

It is largely true, though not nearly absolute, that if a liquor bottle is machine-made it dates from or after Prohibition.
