OURAGEOUS PINK AMETHYST TEBBETTS' HAIR BOTTLE

ITM 7553. "DR TEBBETTS' / PHYSIOLOGICAL / HAIR - REGENERATOR", light to medium pink amethyst, rectangular, smooth base, 7 5/8"H x 2 3/8"W x 1 5/8"D, hand-tooled double collar, a dug bottle in nearly perfect condition. American, 1865-1875, a scarce bottle in a rare color.

Collected in the 1950s by a couple with a superior eye for color, this truly exceptional Manchester, NH hair bottle has been out of the bottle collecting mainstream for more than fifty years. We have had a number of beautiful Tebbetts over the years, including some in lighter shades but this is in our opinion the prettiest of them all. There is no damage but careful inspection reveals some light overall scuffing that leads us to believe that the bottle was dug(!).
