Seller: oldlodgecolo (4,143) 100%, Location: Denver, Colorado, Ships to: US, CA, GB, AU, Item: 223679978991 Early and unusual quack cure bottle for Radium Radia manufactured by the Radium Radia Co., Los Angeles, CA. Applied top bottle stands 5.5” tall and has its original multi-color graphic label in very good condition with just a small portion mission on one side. Label shows the trademark image of a bent over frail-looking man leaning on his cane on the left who is then magically transformed into a dapper-looking gent with hat and no need for his cane on the right side with the words “Never Known to Fail”. One of the best “before and after” trademarks ever devised. Label states “The World’s Greatest Remedy for the Cure of Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Sciatica, Lumbago, Sprains, Backache, Headache, Gout, and all Pains in the Limbs, Chest, and Throat.” The back of the bottle is boldly embossed “Radium Radia”. The bottle is corked and about 70% of the original contents remain (not to be consumed). Bottle comes with the original box which is complete and in very good condition with a few dark spots on the non-graphic back side. The box does state “Sure Cure for Rheumatism, Sciatica, Lumbago, Sprains, Bruises, Cold on Chest, Sore Throat, Swollen Joints, Neuralgia.” Inside the box are three original advertising flyers with outlandish claims, early testimonials, and directions for use. Sold for collectible purposes only, clearly not intended for consumption. Note that there is paraffin tape over the top and cork to prevent leakage – this tape can easily be removed by the new owner if desired. Weird early medicine, back from the turn of the century when unscrupulous companies would tout radium as a cure-all for almost any ailment. Complete example that would be hard to improve upon. Bid with confidence--all items guaranteed to be old and original and come with a 14-day return if not satisfied. Buyer to pay $12.00 shipping in the U.S. I will also ship to Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom – please inquire about shipping costs outside of the United States. Please see my other auctions for more labeled patent medicine bottles, advertising tins, general store items, and quack medicines -- all offered with no reserve. Please save me as a seller as I will be listing over a hundred scarce advertising tins, labeled patent bottles, drug store, and apothecary items in the coming months from two private collections – virtually all with low starting bids and no reserve. I am happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases. I usually run auctions on two consecutive days mid-week -- if you win an item on the first day and are interested in an item or items that close on the second day, please wait to pay until the auctions end on day two. I will send an invoice after all auctions have closed.
