Jackson’s Stonewall Bitters – St. Louis
14 July 2011
With the latest pictures and talk about Civil War bottles and blogs on Facebook, I thought it might be time to post a picture of one of my favorite Bitters Bottles paying homage to the Civil War. The Jacksons Stonewall Bitters probably is the best example out there of just a few Stonewalls, Ex: Carlyn Ring and Jeff Burkhardt. Picked it up in a private transaction at the Baltimore Show in 2008. Great bottle! Look at the stone wall motif!
The Carlyn Ring and W.C. Ham listing in Bitters Bottles is as follows:
