Old washer bottle.

Would this washer bottle be consistent with a '40s  Caddy? It is on Ebay .

It's hard to get a good look at the very small thumbnail you're providing.

Here is a link to the eBay auction this photo comes from:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/234010123159

From looking at the other photos in the auction, this is a round jar.  Cadillac washer jars at least through 1947 were square and not round.  I believe this to be true for 1948 and 1949, as well.  Perhaps Jay F or Art C can confirm?

HTH,

Here is a photo of what I think is a correct jar from another eBay auction that ended earlier this week.

Poncholover,
 Are you looking for a good glass jar for your car, or do you need the whole assembly?  I have several extra glass jars, all of which are the more square shaped ones, and I would be willing to sell one if you are interested. Please PM me if so and we can discuss it further.

The 48 and 49 jar is square.  I'm not sure which year during the '50s the bottles were changed to round.

Poncholover,
 I just double checked my washer jars and I was mistaken. Mine are all round glass jars, but the brackets are square. I apologize for the mistake.
