1800s Ozomulsion Quack Medicine Bottle Victorian Consumption- Tb Cure:
This is a late 1800s era quack remedy bottle embossed "Ozomulsion". The deep amber to brown medicine bottle was found by my father, an avid bottle digger, more than 40 years ago in the ruins of an old southern plantation home in Virginia. A seam stops at the bottom of the neck, indicating it was blown/ molded prior to 1900. The bottle has age related bubbles and quite a bit of sediment deposit from long term exposure to the elements. There are a couple of scars on the back but otherwise it is in nice shape, free from breaks or cracks. The embossing is still strong. The vintage medicine bottle measures about 5.5" tall x 2' wide x 1.25" deep.Ozomulsion was a Victorian era "cure" for Consumption (Tuberculois). Introduced in the 1880s by D. M. Donald Flaufox and manufactured in London and New York, it was advertised as a non-alcoholic Emulsion Food Medicine that prevented disease, preserved health and prolonged life. It was touted to have "wonderful blood-making, tissue building and strength producing elements making it the Monarch of all Spring Medicines".
