Late 19th/Early 20th century.

 

The F. W. Baker &Co was a distillery only, except for 1874, when the company included Wine & Liquors. They were located on Church Street in Nashville, Tennessee. Originally, Francis W. Baker was of german origin and an one of the owners of the famous Nashville Clay Pottery (around 1898) but he and his cousin Henry Baker also ran one of Nashville's better known wine and liquor dealerships.

Edwin:
Check in the "History" thread under "Jack Daniel's in Nashville, Tennessee" and you will see your Baker bottle.

Is your other cylinder bottle embossed or plain?

Nice bottles & hard to find!

The other is plain. These two bottles and also two Jack Daniels embossed cylinders are in transit to me at the moment. So fingers crossed they arrive safe and sound....

Nice Edwin.
I also have some unembossed cylinders. I have always liked them. They display good in anyone's collection.
Mine came from the Lynchburg area.
I have always thought they were made around 1895 during the time Jack Daniel was transitioning from the cylinders to the square bottles. They were meant to be embossed, but Jack himself decided to go with the square bottles and they were left plain. This is just my opinion.
Hope your embossed cylinders arrive safely. Can't wait to see the pictures.
