1859 Dated, Fat Variant Pine Tree Tar Cordial

As Wishart collectors know, there are many size, embossing and color variants, some much rarer. This one is a fatter-than-usual, large sized variant. It's the larger size anyway, so it's very chunky. Also, this is the earlier 1859 dated one. Note the difference in the tree and embossing from the others.

The base appears to have just missed pontil, so smooth based. Applied tapered top. Circa 1860-65, Civil War period.

To show the size and fatness, several of the pics below show this bottle in the middle. This sale is for just one bottle, the one in the middle.
