Seller: wenmo-24 (65) 100%, Location: Big Rapids, Michigan, Ships to: US, Item: 401880294891 Wizard Oil was created in 1861 in Chicago by a former magician, John Hamlin and his brother, and used in traveling medicine shows, according to Wikipedia. It contained 65% alcohol. Research by Grinnell College found that the Hamlins "claimed efficacy for Wizard Oil on not only human beings but also horses and cattle, one poster displaying an elephant drinking the stuff by lifting the bottle with the trunk." After the Pure Food and Drug Act, the company was fined $200 in 1916 for falsely claiming Wizard Oil could "check the growth and permanently kill cancer." The clear glass bottle is 6 x 2 x 1 inches. It had a cork top. The paper label is complete and entirely legible. Embossed on the opposite side in bold and clear letters is "Hamlin's Wizard Oil," and on the side panels "Chicago, Ill." and "U.S.A." 12.00 Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4
