Contrasting colors of Western Squares

I noticed over on the Western Glob Top Whiskies blogsite they had been posting several examples showing the various hues of amber those cylinders come in. I thought our followers on this blogsite might enjoy seeing some western squares in some contrasting colors. The photograph below shows a orange-amber colored Bennet's Wild Cherry Stomach Bitters / Chenery, Souther & Co Sole Agents San Francisco, Cal. (I've also owned this bottle in an olive-amber coloration as well). Next to it is a Dr. Henley's Wild Grape Root IXL Bitters in yellow w/slight amber hue. Quite the contrast between these two squares in color.

The photograph to the right shows the two variants of the Hibernia Bitters in contrasting colors also. On the left is the later variant with Hibernia Bitters embossed horizontally across the front panel in a yellow color with slight amber hue. On the right is the Hibernia Bitters Braunschweiger & Bumsted San Francisco, Cal. variant in a reddish orange amber.
