Wishart's Pine Tree






1859 Dated Wishart's Pine Tree Tar Cordial, Philly

This is a nice looking example of this classic Philly picture medicine in a deeper shade of true green than most. It's the larger size version with the fern-like evergreen tree leaves. It has a bold mold impression and an applied taper top. A classic Civil War colored medicine, priced down due to a small chip.
