Some times great things come in small packages. Offered is a graphically appealing 1920 patent medicine sporting a wonderful label. This unwrapped tonic bottle measures about 3.5 inches and like many patent medicines claims to treat more than one condition. If you need a blood and nerve or anemia remedy, this is it.

The label is complete, a bit faded in one area (red printed portion) but otherwise sports great lithography.

Measuring just 2 inches high, this rarely found, blown-in-mold, 19th century, clear glass bleeding or cupping glass is in excellent condition.

Extensively used in the 19th century and earlier, the cupping glass is a glass vessel from which the air has been exhausted by heat or suction creating a vacuum, and then applied to the skin to draw blood to the surface for therapeutic or curative purposes.

As each is priced separately (see photos for pricing), please email us stating the number of items you wish to purchase so that we can customize your order form.

Some History from the Derby Connecticut Historical Society:

ALBERT W. PHILLIPS, M. D. was born at Marcellus, N. Y., July 26, 1838, his early education having been secured in the common schools of his native town.

He graduated from the Hannemann Homoepathic College, Chicago, Ill., in 1861.

At the commencement of the Rebellion, he enlisted as a private in the 12th Regiment, New York State Volunteers, but was later appointed hospital steward of the same regiment, and later received the appointment of assistant surgeon of the 149th Regiment New York Volunteers. He served until the close of the war, when he moved to Birmingham. He held the office of registrar of vital statistics, and also was an influential member of the Board of Burgess for several years. He was the only follower of the school "similia similibus curantur" in the town, and had a large and lucrative practice.

Please enjoy this graphically-appealing, early 20th century, veterinary advertising poster.

ZULICH'S POWDER was a "Blood, Alternative and Tonic" used for the treatment of horses, cattle and swine, with the company taking pride in advertising its purity and reliability. In fact, the manufacturer stated that it even "contains nothing that will bloat, stiffen, or produce Dropsical affections"!

While I can't confirm or deny whether or not this vet medicine was effective, I can attest that the poster measures 14" high by 11" wide. There are 4 unobtrusive edge tears measuring approx. 1/2 inch, a minor crimp by the letter 'r' in sulphur, and minor losses to three corners, all commensurate with age and minimal use. The sign is made of a quality heavy paper sporting a small brass grommet in the top center for hanging. Framing will further enhance this interesting piece of vintage advertising.

Offered for your consideration is a fabulous, large size, 19th century apothecary bottle sporting a fancy gold & black lettered painted glass label marked “P. ALOE. et CAN.”!

This hand blown, 12 inch tall bottle has a deep pontilled base and is in fine condition. The ground glass stopper has a few unobtrusive interior edge chips.

The label under glass (LUG) applied label is in very good condition, complete and some minor ‘crackling’ of the painted surface.

When viewing the glass label "in person", it is quite appealing and displays beautifully. Please note that the elongated, reddish mark seen on the label is a function of poor photography - it is only a reflection of another object in the room- and not a stain!

Offered for consideration, is a wonderful and rarely found, 19th century American "DENTIST" sign in brass measuring 12 3/4ths inches wide x 7 inches high.

The sign advertises the office of "James H. Groom. Dentist.", and remains in fine condition with deep-toned, original patina and with some very minor warping due to its many years of age. The lettering is actually impressed into the surface and is painted black. Any white marks appearing on the front of the sign are due only to light/sun reflection---the sign has a very even-toned coloration.

The sign has a hole at each corner to facilitate hanging, or it may be easily displayed upon a shelf!

A fabulous , rich-looking display piece with great "eye appeal"!

Offered is a circa 1900, John Wyeth & Brother, amber-colored, 4 ounce, EUPHORBIA PILUIFERA extract bottle. (The other two bottles are sold) The EUPHORBIA PILUIFERA bottle is in fine condition, measuring 4.75 inches high and sporting good labels. Price: $20.00 for the EUPHORBIA PILUIFERA bottle.

Medicine history:

EUPHORBIA PILUIFERA - noted in an 1891 JAMA abstract: Quite recently, at the suggestion of my friend Dr. E. T. Sabal, of Jacksonville, Florida, I have used the remedy named, euphorbia pilulifera, for the relief of a most stubborn case of hereditary asthma, and the results are such that I feel warranted in calling the attention of the profession to it, and also making an effort to compile some statistics which will be of service to us in the future. It is a popular domestic remedy in Australia, and has been used for the relief of coughs, colds and other like disturbances of the air-passages, but more especially in the treatment of asthma.
