Crown of Science

... more on the Prof. Tilton's

Here is an ad from the Salt Lake Tribune -  Feb 21, 1875

Utah diggers have found 5 or 6 of these very cool San Francisco hair bottles over the years in and around SLC and in the mining camps.   Another small mining district "Copper Mtn",  right on the Nevada/Utah border has produced 4 additional  intact examples.    One cabin of miners must have had a hair problem...


  1. Broken and whole examples of the Tilton bottle have been recovered from the Comstock area of Nevada as well.

  2. Great ad Sole Agent. Thanks for posting it ! Love the fact that the miners were into this product !!

  3. Also Napa and Vallejo.
