Historically, purple glass was primarily used for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals because the purple color significantly prolonged the content's shelf life. This bottle looks like a so-called  'flacon' for perfumed body lotion, body oil etc. I'd date it to the 1920ies or 1930ies

This bottle is from England, and frequents the bathroom cabinets of women in their 70's and 80's. It is otherwise know as the 'blue rinse' bottle, although often the settling of the fluid can give it a purple appearance. Hope this helps Ed?

I love all these different stories about bottles......
Contacted the seller and told me the following: "The little purple one is from 1900, it's was BF first mini pre pro, those are extremely hard to find. They usually go for around $150-$200 if you can find them. I have only seen one other one. When I posted pic of it of it on Facebook I had a lot of offers on it"

Well, you can go for all stories :)

The bottom line Edwin is that nobody knows for sure.
I definitely believe it is not a Brown Foreman bottle.
It could possibly be a Lem apple or peach brandy mini.
That's what I would go with until someone proved me wrong. :)
