ITEM 6723. "JELLY OF / POMEGANATE / PREPARATE - BY / DR. GORDAK / ONLY," (Greer #949), greenish aquamarine, rectangular with concave beveled edges, pontil scar, 7 "H, flared lip and expanded mouth, an undamaged bottle exhibiting some minor exterior wear. American, C. 1830, a scarce bottle that is rarely found without some degree of lip damage.

Of the few undamaged Dr. Gordak bottles that we have encountered this is the example with the strongest embossed lettering. The bottle's wide mouth, concave beveled edges and delicately flared lip make it unique among bottles in the pontiled medicine category. The bottle's construction and finely embossed lettering are suggestive of a very early manufacture date.
