Mostly you see the Dr. Miles New Heart Cure, and there is also the Dr. Kilmer's Ocean Heart Weed bottle, it is not a cure but a remedy. There are also later bottles embossed Dr. Agnew's REMEDY for the heart, with the word CURE blotted out and replaced by 'REMEDY', to conform to tougher FDA regulations. We did see an advertisement for this product and in the ad it claimed that Dr. Agnew's Heart Cure will relieve heart disease in thirty minutes ... so no wonder the FDA cracked down on them. It is not only the embossing that makes it a great looking bottle, but also the larger size, the sunken panel filled with embossing, and the deep purple color. You hear about old glass turning purple in the sunlight ... The beautiful purple amethyst color of this bottle is the result of being made with manganese in the glass, a mineral that was pulverized and added to vats of liquid glass that acted as a decolorizing agent to turn the natural aqua-tinted glass into a pure crystal clear colorless glass. Exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun or other sources of UV rays, triggers a chemical reaction and the manganese oxidizes and turns a wonderful amethyst color. This bottle has been exposed to a high heat/light source to enrich the purple color that would naturally occur if exposed to sun light for a prolonged period of time. With few exceptions, only clear glass from before 1914 will turn sun-colored-amethyst. Not only does this deep purple/amethyst color make it a great looking bottle, but it also authenticates it as being truly antique! The purple color of this bottle just sets this one on fire when the sun passes through it, no lie. It is not a commonly seen bottle and in this larger size and HEART CURE embossing, it is a tough act to follow, check it out! Terms of Sale: Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction.
