ITEM 6975. "BROWN'S / CELEBRATED
/ INDIAN HERB BITTERS - PATENTED / 1868", (Ring# B225),
bright yellow amber, figural Indian maiden, smooth base, 12 1/4"H
x 3 1/4"D, inwardly rolled mouth, a true attic bottle presented
in as found condition with some remnants of the original paint
and some interior haze and residue. American, C. 1870.
This fresh to the market find is presented exactly as it was
found with no attempts made to clean or polish. It appears that
much of the interior residue would wash with soap and water but
it is possible that some would prefer to have the interior cleaned
professionally. The exterior would most certainly clean with
a little elbow grease but the piece is left "as is"
for those who would prefer to keep the attic surface. As is often
the case, the bottle is lightest in the upper third (lots of
yellow!) and darker towards the base. The embossed lettering
and mold detailing is as crisp as any Queen we have sold and
the mouth, though crude, is free of damage.
