ITEM 9515. "U.S.A / HOSP.
DEPT" WITH ORIGINAL "VINUM ALBUM / U.S. ARMY LABORATORY
/ ASTORIA, L.I." LABEL, clear olive amber, cylindrical,
smooth base, 9 ¼"H, applied double collar, mint.
Our current offerings include numerous USA Hospital Department
bottles collected over several decades. This collection is arguably
the most comprehensive ever assembled and we are proud to promote
what we believe to be the finest examples in this large and impressive
Another of the stars from the
collection is this wonderful labeled example. Over the years
we have seen a few Hospital bottles with labels but they have
been later additions. To my knowledge this is one of very few
(if not the only) known example with a label specifically denoting
the original contents and including the wording "U.S. Army
Laboratory." The bottle itself is a gem as well and decidedly
lighter than most in this general color range. The bottle and
label make for a great package and an important addition to a
comprehensive collection of Hospital bottles.
