Offered is a patented, Civil War era, clear glass, hand-blown apothecary bottle sporting an appealing label under glass label that is marked 'ACID SULPH. DIL.'.
The base, ground glass stopper, and stunning gold gilt label make this bottle very desirable!
The condition of this 8 inch tall bottle is excellent. The glass label is undamaged with mild unobtrusive paint flecking around the edge. The ground glass stopper is fine and fits perfectly. As seen in the photos, the label appears very nice visually, despite what I would consider minimal manufacturers imperfections as noted. The bottle sports a few tin air bubbles, a 1/2 inch surface bubble on the top back and mild glass imperfection on the lower back of bottle. The base is boldly embossed with the following: "W N WALTON PATd SEP 23 1862".
An early bottle that displays beautifully!
