ITEM 7023. "J.R. STAFFORD'S - OLIVE TAR," (similar to Greer #1601), aquamarine, rectangular, pontil scar, 6 1/16"H, unusually formed applied mouth, mint. American, C, 1840, scarce.

It is this bottle's delightfully long neck, highly whittled glass and unusual mouth treatment that make it a particularly appealing example of its type. Apparently the contents were not meant to be "taken" but rather applied and or placed in hot water to relieve nose and throat complaints.
