EXTREMELY RARE BRIGHT GREEN DR. ROGER'S LIVERWORT

ITEM PM05. "DR. A. ROGERS / LIVERWORT TAR & / CANCHALAGUA - A.L. SCOVILLE & CO - NEW YORK," bright medium green, rectangular tubular pontil scar, 7 9/16"H, applied tapered collar, about mint (small scrape on top edge of the lip and some minor exterior scuffing). American, C. 1850, extremely rare.

We first encountered this exciting bottle more than twenty years ago and we are quite pleased to again be offering this fine colored pontil medicine. Originally discovered by a bottle digger in the early 1970s, this richly toned Dr. Rogers is one of only two known examples (the other having a large crack) in color. Definitely green and not simply a rich shade of aquamarine, the bottle is very boldly embossed and topped by an appealing applied collar.
