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.
