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.
