Super cool find though!

Spanish medical bottle
by: David

It does help that both Lin and I are fluent in Spanish! A quick Google search turned up a page you might have found saying "Callicida Escriva para
extraer los callos y dureza de los pies" which translated means "Callicida Escriva to remove the calluses and hardness from feet."

There is a reference to a newspaper advertisement for this medicine in a 1905 magazine called "Blanco y Negro" which would date this bottle to around that time: https://books.google.com/books?id=EbNHAQAAIAAJ&pg=PP640&lpg=PP640&dq=botella+%22escriva%22+callecida&source=bl&ots=eueHEeqYiX&sig=ACfU3U2AQwCQDtdOfb5-kBJIL7WHoOTLKA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjF9q-0o7TtAhWtrVkKHcFtD-MQ6AEwAHoECAYQAg#v=onepage&q=1905&f=false

More research might produce a photo of the exact bottle:
