EXTREMELY RARE CHARLESTOWN MASS PONTILED MEDICINE WITH EMBOSSED MOTTO

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.
