BEST KNOWN DAVID ANDREWS' BITTERS PROVIDENCE, RI

 

ITEM 7357. "DAVID ANDREWS' / VEGETABLE / JAUNDICE / BITTERS / PROVIDENCE / R.I.," brilliant aquamarine, tombstone shaped rectangle, pontil scar, 8 ¼"H, applied sloping collar with ring, an attic quality bottle with a pinpoint sized radiating stone. American, C. 1850, very rare.

It is this bottle's spectacularly bold embossing (in our experience the strongest documented) and heavily whittled surface that make it the ultimate example of a David Andrews' Bitters. The noted potstone is mentioned solely for accuracy - it is located on the back panel near the base and noticeable only upon very careful scrutiny. In spite of this tiny flaw the bottle remains one of (if not THE) best of the few known examples.

SOLD!
