Fox bank bottles were used as containers for a grape or orange flavored fruit flavored syrup which could be mixed with water to make a drink.  The bottles are 8 3/4 inches tall and contain 12 fluid ounces.  Graduation marks and numbers from 1 to 12 indicate the amount of the syrup (one ounce)  to mix with 6 to 7 ounces of water to make the drink.  The label indicates that the syrup could be poured on ice cream, pudding, or pancakes to make a tasty treat.  After the bottle was empty, the liner in the cap could be removed to allow coins to be passed through the cap and into the bank.  Each side of the bottle has the image of a fox wearing bowtie and a jacket with buttons and pockets.  On the bottom of the bottle, in raised letters is "H. Fox & Co.", the letter M in a hexagon, a number,  and "Des. Pat. Pend."  Based  on the brochure in one of the cases the bottles were packed in, these bottles date from the early 1950's.
