Pristine perfect condition, good glass whittle, plenty of seed bubbles and no trace of wear! This is the very rare variant with the misspelled Nerwich instead of Norwich embossing.

 
21 $ 13,000
 

2. “PIKE & OSGOOD / BOSTON, MASS - ALTERATIVE SYRUP”, (Odell, pg. 280), Massachusetts, ca. 1845 - 1860, yellowish ‘old’ amber, 8 1/2”h, pontil scarred base, applied tapered collar mouth.

About perfect, (a very faint in making internal hairline fissure is at a panel edge). Pristine nicely whittled glass, lots of seed bubbles, no trace of wear and you will need just the right light to find the insignificant flaw.

 
7 $ 4,000
 

3. “BEEKMAN’S - PULMONIC - SYRUP - NEW YORK”, (Odell, pg. 29), New York, ca. 1845 - 1855, olive green, 8-sided, 7 1/4”h, pontil scarred base, applied double collar mouth.

A tiny area of roughness is on the outer edge of the lip, and an internal bubble has some content discoloration. Both of these very minor flaws are strictly in the making and mentioned only for accuracy. A highly sought after New England medicine bottle that has a great impression and a number of seed bubbles. Of the known examples most are smooth base with only a few, like this one, being pontiled

 
1 $ 3,500
