ITEM 6712. LOT OF TWO EXTREMELY
RARE PONTILED MEDICINE BOTTLES INCLUDING "JEWETT'S - LINIMENT
/ FOR - COUCHS & CONSUMPTIONS" AND "JEWETT'S -
LINIMENT - FOR / RHEUMATISM," (not listed by Greer), brilliant
bluish aquamarine, rectangular, 3 5/8"H, tubular pontil
scars, mint. New England, probably blown at the Keene Marlboro
Street Glass Works, C. 1840, extremely rare.
Of the seven various wide-mouthed bottles embossed with Jewett's
name, these are believed to be the rarest. Our research finds
the Consumption bottle to be one of two documented examples and
the Rheumatism bottle to be unique. Both bottles are significantly
larger and gutsier than the commonly found "Jewett's Stimulating
Liniment." This rare and important pair of Rindge New Hampshire
bottles is fresh to the market, having recently been "picked"
at a show in Richmaond, Indiana. Both bottles are attic perfect
and the word "coughs" is misspelled as "couchs"
on the Consumption bottle.
