Walker's Kilmarnock Whisky Bottle 1798

This aqua-greenish botltle stands about 9 1/2" and is in the famous squared shape.  The squared bottle is supposed to have been easier to ship as there was less space wasted.  This bottle was made probably between 1890 and 1910, according to the information I have found.  Its a nice crude bottle full of bubbles in the glass and very pronounced seam lines.  Walker's Kilmarnock Whisky was made by the famous John (Johnnie) Walker, and was produced prior to his son and grandson using his name on later whiskey bottles.
