Antique 1876 Drugstore Bottle Fairchild Pepsine Original Labels Junket And Whey For Sale
WHAT a COOL old Bottle! LOTS of bubbles in the blue tinted glass. This bottle most SURELY spent many years on a drug store shelf. But the WONDERFUL Thing about this bottle is that it still has MOST of its' original OLD Labels (one of which reads: " Originated by Fairchild in 1879). And it Still has the directions on the back labels on how to make JUNKET AND WHEY with it!!!
So this bottle HAS to date to the late 1800's/VERY early 1900's. Because back then.....when you went to the drug store...THEY would use the contents of these kind of bottles to mix up whatever preparation of medicine you needed. Embossed into the base are the letters CCW & the number 272.
It Measures 12 3/4" Tall, 4 1/4" wide & SIXTEEN INCHES AROUND the belly! Would make a WONDERFUL stand alone conversation piece in any decor.
Because the words are very small on some of the labels I'm going to write them out for you below. you can read it or skip over this part, however you might get a kick out of reading the below recipes for preparing Junket and Whey that are found on the labels.
Here is what the label reads:FRONT LABEL: "FIVE PINTS TRADE PEPSENCIA- MARK Registered in U.S. Patent Office ESSENCE OF PEPSINE Fairchild.....AN EXTRACT OF THE GASTRIC JUICE PREPARED DIRECTLY FROM THE FRESH PEPTIC GLANDS, CONTAINING ALCOHOL BY VOLUME 18.5% By Weight 15%. Fairchild (can't read...label missing.....Essence presents the esential organic principles......gastric juice with the entire soluble gland constituents in their normal association. It therefore differs radically from the ordinary, fluid preparations made from ......pepsin"---the essense, elixir and wine which are essentially variable, often feeble and sometimes inert. Fairchild's Essence contains, in an aromatised and sterilised medium, the gastric enzymes, pepsin and milk-curdling, coagulable nucleo-proteids, inorganic matter and hydrochloric acid in the peculiar organic combination. It is a highly agreeable, stable and rigidly standardised product. As peculiarly an actual gastric juice extract, Fairchild's Essence has been for many years a most effective and approved resource in disorders of stomach digestion, as a means of promoting the administration and tolerance of drugs, and in the preparation of various foods for the invalid and infant. One (I think it would read "tea") spoonful, or more, is the usual dose. Originated and made by FAIRCHILD BROTHERS & FOSTER New York....Keep in a cool place....protect from strong light.
THE BACK TOP LABEL READS: "ATTENTION IS CALLED TO THE FACTS STATED ON THE LABEL OF Trade PEPSENCIA Mark....ESSENCE OF PEPSINE, FAIRCHILD. Namely, that it is prepared by direct extraction from stomach glands and contains the essential enzymes of the gastric juice in solution as thus obtained. It differs therefore, from essence of pepsin of the Formulas---N. F. and others, which are mixtures of pepsin and other ingredients in solution. Originated by FAIRCHILD in 1879.
THE BACK BOTTOM LABEL READS: "DIRECTIONS FOR USING PEPSENCIA....Trademark Reg. in U.S. Pat Office. FAIRCHILD'S ESSENCE OF PEPSINE To Make Junket and Whey..
JUNKET--Into a small clean bowl put one teaspoonful of Pepsencia andadd one-half pint of fresh cool milk; stir gently to mix thoroughly. Place the bowl containing the milk and pepsin in a dish or pan of larger size and pour into the larger dish or pan boiling water sufficient to come to the level of the mixture. Let the bowl stand in the hot water for two minutes. Then remove and let stand until the milk is finely jellied, when the junket is ready for use just as it is, or with sugar, grated nutmeg, etc. May be placed on ice and taken cold.
WHEY: Prepare junket by formula above, when firmly jellied beat with a fork until finely divided; then strain, and the whey (liquid part) is ready for use. Keep in a bottle on ice or in a very cold place. If the whey is to be used in a milk-and-whey mixture for an infant, it should be heated to at least 150 degree F as soon as strained; if not thus heated it will curdle the mild. Whey contains the soluble albuminoids, sugar and saline constituents of the milk and (in suspension) the particles of casein and fat (which may pass through the strainer). Whey is excellent as a means of varying the diet of the sick, often of special service in fevers, allaying thirst, refreshing, nourishing; proves a valuable resource as a food for infants in cases of difficult feeding and under conditions where "rest feeding" is indicated.
