“NEWTON’S – PANACEA – PURIFIER – OF THE – BLOOD – NERWICH, VT”, bright yellow olive, cylindrical with indented panels, pontil scar, 7 ½”H, applied sloping collar with ring, an attic quality example with a clean, shallow 3/16” base edge flake.  Blown at a Stoddard Glass House, Stoddard, NH, C. 1845, an extremely rare bottle in an unrecorded color.

A strong contender for Vermont’s “best bottle,” this Newton’s Panacea is the stuff that dreams are made of.  Light, bright and truly “olive” in color, this is the only known example that is not blown in amber colored glass.  (Please see comparison photos for verification).  Not only olive but also a transparent olive, the glass passes light with ease, revealing a bevy of bubbles and waves of whittle.  The embossed lettering is very bold, including the mis-spelling of the word “Nerwich” (correctly spelled as “Norwich” on the more often seen variation).  The shorter than normal neck and fat top add further appeal to this heart-stoppingly beautiful pontiled medicine.

Want to work out a payment plan?  We can do that.  Just send me a PM and we can figure something out.  Oh, and as always, your satisfaction with the piece is unconditionally guaranteed.  We’re not happy unless you’re happy.

Marked at 12,500, this one of a kind Vermont bottle can be sold for 10,500.  It is going to be hard to see this one go!!!!
