Bovril was a very salty meat based product that became popular in the late 1800's  for family use and also for use by the military  as a food supplement for soldiers.  It was a thick syrupy mixture that could  be used as a spread on bread and crackers; it could be mixed with water to make a broth; or it could be used as a seasoning and flavoring addition in various soups and stews.  It came in dark amber bottles in several sizes including 1/2,  1,  2,  4,  8,  and 16 ounces.  A set of these odd shaped bottles makes an interesting display and appears to be a measuring set.  These bottles date from about 1920.
