This spectacular Bryant's Stomach Bitters is one of the best
known examples of this desirable Western bottle. The bottle is
boldly embossed and blown in a clear shade of crude olive green
glass. Fresh to the market from an old-time collection, this
bottle was dug in the West many years ago and recently tumbled
to near perfection. The bottle retains a pleasing exterior luster
and it so far exceeds the appearance of the shipwreck examples
as to make any comparison a moot point. If you are looking to
buy the best, this is it!
