Rare Opium Tincture Bottle Dated 1879 Cobalt Laudanum With Stopper Hand Blown For Sale
Here's a very scarce museum quality original 125 year old cobalt blue Tincture of Opium, (or Laudanum as it was called), bottle dated 1879 on bottom with the glasshouse maker's mark and original cobalt ground glass stopper! If you collect early opium or narcotic bottles, here's your chance to acquire one of the finest authentic opium bottles I've ever seen
OPII DEODOR TINCT (in bold raised letters in sunken circle on front...all letters having ground surfaces)
MAR 25TH 1879 WHITALL TATUM & CO PHILA NEW YORK U.S.A. lightly emb on bottom.
Hand blown...hand tooled wide ring collar...ground inside neck....original ground glass stopper...round....cobalt blue...4 3/8"tall (5 3/8"to top of stopper)
Excellent condition with no chips, cracks or damage (except a tiny no harm nick on top surface of lip). A shiny clean bottle. There is a natural crease or thin open bubble on the inside surface of ground neck which cannot even be seen from the outside of the bottle. I looked at it closely with a magnifying glass and it is just a natural flaw on the inside surface of the glass only. There is also a tiny 1/8" natural cloud or white spot on the surface only of edge of lip. This also is NOT damage and was from when lip was finished...very common on older hand blown bottles.
This bottle contained Tincture of Opium Deodorized, also called Laudanum. I have had a lot of opium bottles over the years, but this is the first cobalt blue opium bottle I've seen. I guarantee it is authentic and over 120 years old. You wont find one any nicer than this.
