    1. Two have repairs, to set record straight.

  2. Pretty rare examples, definitely the kind of bottles that never come up for sale on the top of sales tables at bottle shows. I miss those days.

  3. Repaired or not, try finding even a piece of one of those bottles.

  5. That bottle has the initials ATR embossed on the shoulder, the bulge in the neck has a distinctive feature being multi-flatsided. I'm aware of two examples in collections.

  6. The Lady's Leg in the center is a paper label California Wine Bitters.

  8. I believe this line up represents all of the actual western blown lady's leg bitters.With the possible exception of the Cusparia Bitters. The ATR is a western bitters in my opinion although I do not know what the initials represent. Dale M.

  10. Never thought of the ladys leg connection. I do know that that laid on ring top style is one of my favorites on any bottle. Repaired does not matter to me. having an example of those rare bottles in any condition is quite an accomplishment. cal49er
