Dr Langley's Root & Herb






Circa 1860 Dr. Langley's Root & Herb Bitters - Boston

This is the shorter version of this bottle. It appears to have just missed being pontiled, or it's possible that it was iron pontiled and the evidence is unclear. Either way, I'm selling it as smooth-based. It has lots of character in the glass and much better embossing than is usually seen on this bottle. The ring top was crudely applied, having a big sag of glass down one side of the neck.
