WOODEN CYLINDERS PILL BOTTLES
There were many medical companies that used wooden tube like cylinders along with a wooden cap. These wooded containers were a cheaper alternative to glass bottles. The medical companies would fill the wooden tubes with either small pills or powers . Then put the wooden cap on and wrap there label around the tube. This would act like a tamper proof seal. You would have to break the seal to remove the cap. Just like glass bottle they would offer different sizes of there products. Below are just a few of these examples.
