Early Labeled Quack Cure Bottle, Helmbold’s Fluid Extract Buchu, C. 1870's For Sale
Unusual and very early (circa 1870’s) patent medicine bottle for Helmbold’s Highly Concentrated Fluid Extract of Buchu, Philadelphia. Pale aqua bottle is very crude with lots of bubbles and stretch marks in the neck. The applied top lip is also quite crude, with several areas of unevenness and indentations as applied. The bottle stands 6” tall and is clean and damage free. The sides are embossed “H.T. Helmbold/Genuine Fluid Extract/Philadelphia”. The front panel has the original label which features a finely detailed view of the Helmbold Chemical Warehouse and an early street scene – great label. The label is in fair condition with wear, soiling, roughness along the edges and a small portion missing at bottom right. The label also has had a light clear coating applied at some point in the past. Still displays quite well and is one of the best labels found on any early quack medicine bottle. Please note that you are offerding only on the Helmbold’s Buchu bottle, the other bottles shown in the last photo are being saleed separately.
