Awfully small for a brand.

Looks like a brand. If you know what state it came from
you could look into a brand directory.

The mark does resemble a miniature or reduced size livestock brand. In Texas back in the day some saddle makers were also cowboys. The successful one became ranchers. In some instances the evolution was reversed whereby successful leather craftsmen became ranchers. Hence the ranch brand would also be used as the makers mark. The most well known might be The King Ranch in South Texas with "w". hardcase60.

Same thought flashed through my mind when I first saw the thread title. Mysterious? That bottle is the easiest to identify of them all ...

That would explain the size.
