Circa 1860 Hinge Mold Medicine - Helmbold Genuine Extracts, Philadelphia
This a paneled medicine that was based on Buchu extract. It's an attic find with the original label. The top is an applied double collar. The base is hinge mold creased, and the snap case shape is so crude the bottle won't stand upright. The embossing strike is terrific.
