A commercial container of a quantity of nose drops. An item like this would often be kept in a household's medicine cabinet, and used when someone had a cold. The bottle is only about 2 inches long (so it would also be handy to tuck into someone's purse or pocket for portability). This product has been seen in some 1940s advertisements.
