CLEAR OLIVE GREEN GREELEY'S BARREL BITTERS

 

ITEM 9534. "GREELEY'S BOURBON / BITTERS," clear olive green with a slight topaz tone, figural barrel, smooth base, 9 ¼"H, applied collar, about mint (several pinhead sized lip edge flakes and some manufacturer's neck crazing). American, 1860-1870. Rare color.

This fine Greeley's is decidedly "green" in tone and as shown, it passes light with ease and offers even top to bottom color saturation. Though not technically perfect the noted condition issues are minor, especially when considering a piece of this color and overall quality. This is a desirable bottle that offers pleasing overall whittle, crisply embossed lettering and in oh so beautiful color.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: We have had several requests to add photos showing a comparison between the two olive barrels. Please find that image below.

SOLD!
