Comment on “In Hoc Vinces” – Romaine’s Crimean Bitters by Ferdinand Meyer Vhttp://www.peachridgeglass.com/2014/11/in-hoc-vinces-romaines-crimean-bitters/#comment-7839 Wed, 12 Nov 2014 20:14:19 +0000 http://www.peachridgeglass.com/?p=62386#comment-7839 [from Marianne Dow] Wow – there is a lot of Freemason / Masonic symbolism here: the triangle = Pyramid; they used the ”In Hoc Vinces” motto; 110 has to do with Psalms 110:1 and is a Masonic reference – http://masonic.wikidot.com/adonai – and the RCB stands for the Rothschild & Cie Banque who were the high mucky muck powers behind so much history, including the Freemasons as well as financing the Crimean War.

Comment on Hyde & Gay – Hunk Dori Bitters by etmcguirehttp://www.peachridgeglass.com/2014/10/hyde-gay-hunk-dori-bitters/#comment-7731 Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:02:36 +0000 http://www.peachridgeglass.com/?p=61766#comment-7731 I completely agree with your observation that the missing letter “I” in HUNK is in the pictogram of an eye. Think about how difficult it would be to depict an object with a name that sounds like “eee” but actually represents the letter “I”. After very much pondering, the drawing of an eye leaps forward. There simply aren’t many objects that satisfies the requirements – and an eye may be the only one.
Perhaps the bigger question is, why would someone want to go in such an odd direction in order to sell bitters? Maybe Hyde & Bath were selling a “ripoff” product and changed their trademark just enough to hopefully avoid a lawsuit.
On the other hand it appears to be a good marketing tool, as the name tends to stick with you longer than if it were simply spelled out. Reading the label really ends up as a little game, just as you explained in your red colored text, Ferd. Really quite clever.

Comment on Coleman’s Tonic Bitters – Portsmouth, New Hampshire by Brandon DeWolfehttp://www.peachridgeglass.com/2014/10/colemans-tonic-bitters-portsmouth-new-hampshire/#comment-7718 Thu, 23 Oct 2014 12:24:54 +0000 http://www.peachridgeglass.com/?p=61676#comment-7718 I’ll be keeping an eye out for one for sure!

Although F.B. Coleman bought out J.H. Thatcher’s pharmacy on 51 Congress Street, J.H. Thatcher continued to run a second pharmacy at 12 Market Square until 1888, when he sold this second pharmacy to Benjamin Green.

Comment on A labeled Mett (or Alett) Stomach Bitters from Joliet by Ferdinand Meyer Vhttp://www.peachridgeglass.com/2014/10/a-labeled-mett-stomach-bitters-from-joliet/#comment-7674 Wed, 15 Oct 2014 01:12:54 +0000 http://www.peachridgeglass.com/?p=61438#comment-7674 Hi. looked at the label more I am starting to thinks it might be ALETT not METT since reading your post you talked about “Mett is probably a word-play with “Magen” and “Ett”linger. I think it is from the “AL” in Alexander & the “Ett” in Ettlinger. Also mett mean pork in German.

See what you make of it could go both ways. Lou
