This is a classic bitters from the Civil War era in a gem mint condition. This comes pontiled, but this is an early smooth based version. It's rectangular, but 6 sided. The embossing is crisp and old style. Nice character to the glass. Hand applied ring top.
Embossed: S. O. / RICHARDSON'S // BITTERS // SOUTH / READING //MASS.
Height: 7 1/4 "
Condition: Attic Mint - structurally perfect (no dings, chips, cracks), clean, only the lightest spotty trace wear. Nice one.
Reference Number: M231
