"SWETT'S" TYPE STODDARD, NH MEDICINE BOTTLE

ITEM 9919. MEDICINE BOTTLE, golden olive amber, rectangular with wide beveled edges, sand chip pontil scar, 8 1/8"H, applied sloping collar, an attic quality bottle with a faint bruise on the interior of the applied mouth. Blown at a Stoddard Glass House, Stoddard, NH, C. 1850, very scarce. Ex. Paul Tremblay and David Ellis.

Big, bold and gutsy, this unembossed "Swett's Panacea" type medicine bottle is arguably the finest extant example. The noted bruise in the mouth is VERY faint (in fact, I can't find it today) and mentioned solely for accuracy. The bottle is otherwise attic perfect, brightly colored (in the context of Stoddard glass) and absolutely filled with bubbles. Previous owners of this bottle include Paul Tremblay and David Ellis, collectors known for their discretion and taste when choosing bottles for their shelves.
