We have enjoyed shipping our items all over the world and are happy to offer most of our items to international buyers. Yet insuring International parcels is very expensive so PLEASE NOTE; we do NOT insure International orders unless winning buyer specifically requests this and we are able to provide an insurance quote. 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 send payment acknowledgments and shipping confirmations. Your prompt payment will assure a very quick turn-around time. IMPORTANT NOTE: If our 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 especially important for foreign buyers to know as most of our foreign shipping charges are rough estimates. This is just a great example of an antique patent medicine bottle. With the "LINIMENT ... KILLS PAIN" embossing, it is the kind of product that America grew up on! Hard working farmer's, logger's, mill worker's and miner's, this is what they saturated themselves with at the end of the day. Sloan's Liniment was one of the great ones as it survived all of the pure food and drug laws and outlived all of the competitors! Like so many of these early-day patent medicines, there was something about this liniment that was genuinely genuine. Though so many of the old patent medicine bottles held alcohol-drenched narcotic-laced quack medicines, some of them were really time tested old-world recipes handed down through the ages that were effective at helping and even curing certain sickness. I believe this to be one of them. Of all the Sloan's Liniment bottle's we've dug and seen over the decades, this is by far the largest and cleanest one of them. Yes, just a great looking bottle, climaxed by the deep purple color. You hear about old glass turning purple ... 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. But here's the best part ... with a clear glass embossed bottle you see through it, and the embossing reflects what ever patterns and colors are in the background. Yet with this deep purple color, you are looking, NOT through the embossing but AT the embossing, which accentuates it and makes every detail stand out / jump right out at you. It doesn't matter whether an old glass object has turned purple by the sun or UV rays in a controlled environment, they turn the same purple color as it is the same chemical reaction taking place. What is important is the age of the bottle, a bottle has to be old enough to turn purple. 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. And then, last but not least, the impressive large 18 oz (OVER a full pint) size of this bottle gives it all of the right stuff to make it a great bottle, check it out!Terms of Sale: Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction.
