Offered is a 1913, wonderful, colorfully-designed, St Jacobs Oil Pharmacy Patent Medicine Bottle with box. The colorful image of the robed St. Jacob holding high a bottle of this liniment makes for great advertising!
This compound contains chloroform and claims to help relieve the pain of Rheumatism, Lumbago, Gout, and Headache, to name but a few. The box is in good condition and displays very well although it shows modest wear, surface staining, with some crimps as well as loss of the top flap. The 6.25 inch corked bottle is in fine condition and sports a complete label that is crimped just beneath the black "St Jacobs Oil" printing. Slight staining and loss near the base is also evident.
Overall, a very interesting, well-designed, patent medicine bottle and box which displays rather well and is worthy of any collection!
