ITEM 7769. "MORSE &
CO'S /MAGNOLIA COMPOUND / CHARLESTOWN MASS - IT RECOMMENDS /
ITSELF," aquamarine, oval, tubular pontil scar, 7"H,
applied mouth, dug and lightly cleaned retaining some light scratches
and ground wear. American, C. 1850, extremely rare.
Likely one of less than a handful of known examples, this is
the only pontiled medicine (or any 19th century bottle for that
matter) we are aware of that features an embossed motto. It appears
to me that this is one of the two Magnolia Compounds owned by
Greer - our research indicates that no other example has since
come to light.
