Jackson’s Stonewall Bitters – St. Louis

14 July 2011

Apple-Touch-IconAWith 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:

motif stonewall on 2/3 of side // motif of stonewall on 2/3 side // f // JACKSON’S upper 1/3 of panel / STONEWALL word within assorted stones of wall / word BITTERS is within assorted stones of wall // // s // QUINLIN // BROS & CO // ST. LOUIS // MO // counter clockwise starting over unlettered panel with stonewall,
9 1/2 x 2 3/4 (5 3/4) 1/4,
Square, Amber, LTC, Applied mouth, Very rare

    When I first began collecting bitters bottles from all over the U.S. I was attracted to these semi-cabin shaped containers, this bottle along with the Martin’s Bermuda Bitters and all the others were my all time favorites! Your very lucky to have landed an example.
