Guest Book
Offered is a wonderful fancy John Wyeth apothecary bottle sporting a fancy shield shaped foil label. Decorative stock bottles such as this beauty were meant to be refilled and were the pride of the pharmacy staff. Decorative and reflective medicine bottles also served as a form of advertising since they stood out from their competitors.

This 8.5 inch amber wide mouth example has ground glass construction and dates to the 1920 - 1930 era.

The bottle condition is excellent with no damage. The label shows light wear and staining commensurate with age and use. The small label on back has minor loss and wear. Although the photos of the label appear silver, it is more of a GOLD toned foil.

According to the back label, ETHOBRAL is a preparation of CARBROMAL and in some states must be dispensed only upon prescription. Additional research notes that this medicine demonstrates the potency of barbituates and is classified as a HYPNOTIC and SEDATIVE.

Sorry if this verbose description is putting you to sleep!

Hard to find with labels in this very nice condition.
