A Triloids brand, triangular cobalt poison bottle, manufactured by William R. Warner & Co, likely between 1908 - 1920.

Triloids was a well-known brand of mercury bichloride/mercuric chloride, which was used at the time as a topical disinfectant (as well as a treatment for another far more delicate medical issue we won't list here). 

Mercury bichloride was known at the time to be fatal if ingested, hence its packaging in the mandated cobalt bottle, with hobnail ridges and poison notation. 

Condition: Good used.
