EXTREMELY RARE LANGLEY'S ROOT & HERB BITTERS - BRIGHT YELLOW GREEN WITH OLIVE TONE

BC27. "DR LANGLEY'S / ROOT & HERB / BITTERS / 99 UNION STREET / BOSTON", (Ring# L21), bright yellow green with an olive tone, cylindrical, smooth base, 8 5/8"H x 3"D, applied square collar, a shallow ¾" base edge sliver chip has been filled with epoxy. American, 1865-1875, extremely rare and possibly unique in this color.

I know of only one other Langley's in this color and that is the half-size L22 that sold in an April 1995 Glass Works sale for $2640. This bottle appears to have been blown using the same batch of glass and it is a staggeringly beautiful piece that is loaded with bubbles and impurities. As noted, a shallow sliver chip at the base edge has been "patched" - this is the bottle's only flaw and it is not noticeable upon display. The piece is otherwise perfect and the bottle remains a rare, important and BEAUTIFUL bitters!

SOLD!
