This unusually colored bitters bottle is not a true "puce"
but it is not the typical shade of amber either and it displays
a distinct "red" cast in most any lighting situation.
The bottle's color is akin to that of a C.A. Richards and with
that in mind, it seems likely that it too (as with the Richards)
is a product of the Lyndeboro Glass Works.
