Turner Brothers Bitters on ebay

One of our western collectors is offering a beautiful Turner Brothers Bitters on ebay.

 The description reads:
Here is a strong example of a rare western square. This big and nasty bottle dates from the late 1850s to early 1860s. The contents were "Forest Wine Bitters" and likely other products put out by the five Turner Brothers. Embossing reads " Turner Brothers, New York, Buffalo, NY & San Francisco" The color is a medium olive green and lighter than the photos depict on this cloudy day. The top is crudely applied and it has an early smooth base. This one has never been cleaned and other than a teeny pinhead open bubble or nick on the right shoulder ( no collateral radiation) it is mint. This pinhead is too tiny to show in the photos, and I doubt anyone would ever notice it...just trying to be extremely accurate
Nice bottle, interesting history check it out on ebay..... here
