Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound made its commercial appearance in Lynn, Massachusetts, in 1875 for $1 a bottle. She wrote handbills for her sons to distribute with slogans such as “Only a woman can understand a woman’s ills.” It was her son Daniel who, in 1879, had the idea of using his mother’s picture in newspaper advertisements to emphasize the homemade quality of the compound. His strategy succeeded, and continued heavy advertising made the face of the “savior of her sex,” as the ads described her, one of the best known in the country. Although medical proof was never found to substantiate the claimed therapeutic effects of the compound, it quickly gained acceptance with women, many of whom were hesitant to consult male physicians about “female problems.” During Pinkham’s life, the business expanded from a cellar kitchen, in which she mixed the formula herself, to a laboratory that brewed, bottled, and shipped enough compound to gross just under $300,000 a year." There are some bubbles in the Glass indicating it was made prior to the 30's. The bottle is Exquisite, very Beautiful!! Condition: Bottle is in FANTASTIC condition! Quick rinse and you are ready to showcase.
