Back in the day when this bottle was in circulation, the Native American Indian was looked upon with much mystique. Many early-day patent medicine men used them as a symbol to sell their medicines and suggested that their medicines had secret age-old formulas that had been concocted over the centuries by the Native American. This is one of them, Modoc Indian Oil, that supposedly had some kind of miraculous healing powers from the ingredients that were extracted from different roots and herbs that the Native American Indians had used for centuries to treat such things, plus a little Indian spiritism added to the allure. Though the Modoc Indians are a Native American tribe who originally lived in an area out west, which is now northeastern California and central Southern Oregon, this product was probably bottled by a shyster in some eastern industrial center and was composed of little more than a medicinal based liquid with flavoring, alcohol, and quite possibly a narcotic ingredient. Then there is the beautiful dark amethyst color. You hear about old bottles turning purple from the sun. This bottle was exposed to a light source to enrich the purple color that would naturally occur if exposed to the ultra violet rays of the sun for a prolonged period of time. Note that with a clear glass bottle you hold it up to the light to see through it and read the embossing, 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 glass but right AT the embossing, which accentuates it and makes it much more visible! 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, check it out!Terms of Sale: Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction.
