HB3. "NATIONAL / BITTERS - PATENT
/ 1867", (Ring# N8), medium to deep burgundy, figural ear
of corn, smooth base, 12 1/4"H x 2 3/4"D, crudely applied
mouth with ring, 1/16" lip flake and a shallow 3/8"
base edge bruise. American, 1875-1885, very scarce.

when held to the sky, the glass burns a deep red with purple

one, a perfect example of this bottle would command well in excess
