Thank you.  I suspected that might be the pupose of the bottle, but at the time I started researching a few years back, I couldn't locate any photo of the exact item. There still seems to be some doubt as to it's usage, but at least this supports my theory. I saw the estimate, but could not find the actual selling price. Appreciate your help!! I am new to this site and already love it!
