Description

Durkee is a mayonnaise-based salad dressing that is still sold today. E.R. Durkee & Co is from Buffalo, New York.

Bottom:
BOTT[missing, but would have said BOTTLE PATENTED]
[Diamond mark with 16 31 R L]
APRIL 17 1877

The diamond-shaped mark at the bottom of the bottle is actually a British-style registry mark, that would typically be used to indicate the month and year of manufacture, but in this case all Durkees bottles of this type have identical marks.
The Society for Historical Archeology dates this bottle variation to around 1908-1929.
