Back in April 2010, an interesting find occurred in Seattle, Washington. A fellow named Niel Smith found an extremely rare coloration of a Brown’s Indian Queen.
According to Niel in a email that was circulated, ‘This bottle was found at an estate sale the weekend of the Antioch show. It is mint, with an extremely crude top. The first picture is how I found it, complete with price tag, in a window at the sale!‘
Glass Works ended up Auctioning the bottle later in the year. The new owner is super figural bitters collector Bill Taylor from Grants Pass, Oregon.
I am trying to track down more information. I have posted the initial photographs that circulated in April last year.
Bill did mention that there was a second chip in the mouth while only one was reported by Glass Works. He said he almost sent it back. He is now glad he kept it. I would agree.
