    Aluminum foil was invented in 1910 in Switzerland, so if it's aluminum and not tin, that limits its age. When you say "measurements" on the bottle - are they in ounces or are they metric? Is the cap plastic (Bakelite?) or metal? I suspect an a MP holster (or similar) of the WW I era, but a digital photo would go a long way in confirming/denying that.
