John R. Williams Stockton Druggist

The Williams Balsamic Cream of Roses bottle is a tough one to acquire. It was blown at the San Francisco and Pacific Glass Works circa late 1880's  as shown in the following picture:

It stands 5 1/4 inches tall with a tooled top and as far as I know only comes in this medium blue color. I acquired my example from Chuck Erickson several years ago at the Santa Rosa Bottle Show - Thanks Chuck!
As for the National Horse Liniment - I haven't, as of this date, seen an embossed example


  1. I really like the base embossing of the glassworks, pretty cool !

  2. I have only seen two or three of those bottles. very nice! Dale M.
