We have to admit the provenance of this antique amber glass bottle is a bit of a mystery to us. Why would the Ford Motor Co. have citronella oil bottled especially for them? Our best guess is this was part of a camping outfit that would have been sold to help convert a Model T or other Ford vehicle into a comfortable place to spend the night outdoors (as shown in the vintage advertisement below). As a known mosquito repellant, the citronella oil would have been a natural camping accessory. Again, we're just guessing on this, but we do estimate the bottle to be pre-1920's.

At nearly 100 years old, this is a truly rare bottle and perfect for collectors of Ford Motor memorabilia, automobilia, and unique antiquities.
