Dexter Loveridge’s Wahoo Bitters – The Traveller’s Friend Flask

04 February 2016

Apple-Touch-IconAJust received some great pictures the other day while boarding a flight from Tampa to Houston. Knocked my socks off, I think, as I had boots on. Look at these spectacular images that I prepped in Photoshop. From a prominent anonymous collector who has the best of best eyes for obtaining great bottles. I have never seen this embossed Loveridge flask before from Buffalo, New York. Dig the pewter cap, tax stamp, label and form. Off-the-chart killer. The US revenue proprietary tax stamp is Scott rb12b – 2 cent Washington issue, and is surprinted with a “W” for Wahoo, I believe.

No one should travel without it.

    Wow, what a bottle! The word “killer” is probably over-used, but that’s exactly what this bottle is!
