ITEM 9541. "GREELEY'S BOURBON / BITTERS," WITH 80% ORIGINAL LABELS, light, smoky olive topaz, figural barrel, smooth base, 9 ¼"H, applied collar, a mint, attic type bottle retaining a few spots of washable content residue. American, 1860-1870. Rarely found with the original label.

This spectacular barrel bitters excels in all regards, exhibiting pleasing glass crudity, offering transparent color and retaining a good portion of the original, colorful label. Though falling into the broad category of "green" Greeley's the bottle's color is best described as "olive topaz," a tone softer and more pleasing than many others of its general type. Though not 100% complete, the label is a handsome and colorful addition to this to this exceedingly attractive figural barrel.

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