Check out this great grouping of Western square bitters!(and one rare beer). From left to right- Jacob Denzler San Francisco;N.B. Jacobs San Francisco;Alex Von Humboldts Stomach Bitters;Dr. J. Hostetters Stomach Bitters;Dr. Renz's Herb Bitters;Rosenbaums Bitters, San Francisco;E.G. Lyons; "Star of the Union";Cundurango Bitters. Notice how the tops are applied so crooked, they almost appear to be ready to slide off! Collectors love crudely made bottles, and for some reason, Western squares exhibit this characteristic more than other bottles. Each of these examples are top specimens. Thank You to Dennis Eastley for displaying these in a "Ken Edwards" custom cabinet. Western glass does not get much better than this.
Thanks to Oregon Trail Antique Bottles and Glass for this post
