ITEM 7556. "I. COVERT'S - BALM OF LIFE," forest/emerald green, rectangular with beveled edges, pontil scar, 6 1/8"H, crudely applied sloping collar with ring, a mint bottle with some manufacturer's neck crazing. Blown at the Mount Vernon Glass Works, Vernon, NY, C. 1840. A scarce bottle in an extremely rare color.

Purchased in the 1950s and not offered for sale until now, this is far and away the finest example of this bottle we know of. Unsurpassed in color and overall crudity this bottle is also more boldly embossed than most Covert's and in pristine condition without even a hint of wear. If you are looking for the ultimate example of this hard-to-find colored pontiled medicine you have found it!
