Rare Clear Indian Bitters Bottle Up For Auction

Jeff Wichmann's auctionhouse has another batch of incredible bottles in their currently-running auction, which ends Nov. 9  -- Just look at this clear Indian figural bottle!

From the American Bottle Auctions press release:

A trove of 375 rare and vintage bottles will be sold to the highest bidders in an Internet and catalog auction slated for Oct. 29-Nov. 9 by American Bottle Auctions (http://www.americanbottle.com/). It will be the 51st sale for the firm. Most of the bottles date to 1850-1900, the period desired by collectors, when superior embossing techniques were used.

“We’re looking forward to what could be the largest auction American Bottle Auctions has ever conducted,” said Jeff Wichmann of American Bottle Auctions. “We have some very rare and desirable figural bitters and a good selection of historical flasks. There will also be some other terrific offerings, among them Western whiskey bottles, sodas, medicine bottles and more.”

The expected top lot of the auction is a Brown’s Celebrated Indian Herb bitters bottle, patented Feb. 11, 1868 (Ring-B 226). It is likely to bring $10,000 to $20,000. “This is the first pure, clear example of this bottle ever offered,” said Wichmann.
