Speaking of colors....

One of the benefits of collecting western bitters bottles over categories such as whiskies, sodas, & medicines is the ability to not only collect a varied spectrum of color, but also shapes. We are blessed here on the West coast to have had a few enterprising individuals back a century and a half ago that either believed in the marketing of a product in a fancy container led to better sales or were convinced by the glassworks that such a vessel was necessary or needed, to promote their product above their competition. I for one, am glad for whatever the reason, that they did! (left to right) Lacour's , A T & Co , V. Squarza
