A McCamus Bobcaygeon Ontario medicine chemical bottle circa 1900. This 2-3/4" high (with lid) medicine or chemical bottle with the original paper label has a turned wooden mushroom cap. Thomas McCamus (b.1860) was the son of Wm. McCamus, a druggist in Bobcaygeon, Ontario, Canada (in the 1881 census, he was listed as a clerk, presumably in his father's druggist and chemist store, which he must have later taken over as indicated by his name on the label). The printed label states: T. McCAMUS, CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST, BOBCAYGEON, ONTARIO. and it has BISMUTH SUB. (illegible). The turned wooden cap is cork lined and it has a fragmented black paper lining. The bottle is two-molded with the expected flaws. This early Canadian medicinal bottle is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks, losses, damage or repairs other than some minor staining and fading to the label and some cracking and loss to the lid liner. Please note that the pictures are darker than the actual label, and it looks much better condition-wise in person. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use.
