Seller: clancy_kid (14,030) 99.8%, Location: Clancy, Montana, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 392436438281 Here is a 4.5" tall cylinder-shaped light TURQUOISE AQUA MARINE colored antique OPIUM based PAIN KILLING QUACK patent medicine bottle. What sets this example above the rest is the embossing, THIS EXAMPLE has unusually BOLD EMBOSSING as most of these, you can hardly even read the word OPIUM the lettering is so light. This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE hand Blown Into Mold bottle (BIM) with a tooled top, dating it well OVER 100 YEARS OLD, more than ONE CENTURY OLD. Bottle embossed: "Dr. McMunn's / Elixir of Opium". Condition: This bottle is in very nice condition. It has traces of aging; light stain and wear and for the record it has the tiniest nick in the lip, a pin-point flea bite size that many would not even notice or mention. Other than this, there is NO cracks, chips, dings, damage, etc. PLEASE see pictures to get a better idea of how the bottle looks. Age: An early hand-blown bottle (Blown-In-Mold = BIM) with a tooled-top, ca. late-1800's. Shipping: FREE domestic shipping, includes insurance. We do NOT insure International orders unless buyer specifically requests this and we are able to provide an insurance estimate. If an international shipping charge is much more than the actual shipping cost, we will refund the excess so what YOU pay for shipping/insurance is very close to, if not exactly, the ACTUAL shipping costs! This is important for foreign buyers to know as most of our foreign shipping charges are estimates. We do not falsify information on the Customs Form, such as a price other than what the actual purchase price is, so please do not request us to do so. We ship several times a week and your prompt payment will hasten the turn-around time. The really is the POSTER CHILD of antique QUACK MEDICINE bottles, as very few antique bottles actually have a narcotic ingredient embossed on them as this one does. And repetition for emphasis, this one has BOLD embossing, you can easily read the word 'OPIUM'. Many of these that you see have such light embossing that it is hard to make out the word 'OPIUM'. When these are found, they are often found in quantities, showing the addictive nature of the beast. I have heard more than one story about 100's of these little bottles being found in a cache, often broken up and buried in the ground! The one here is a great example of an original antique opium laced patent medicine bottle, check it out! Terms of Sale: Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction.
