Unlisted Morning Call Bitters
30 July 2011
By now, I suppose many of you have heard about the unlisted Morning Call Bitters that I was fortunate enough to win at the FOHBC live auction at the 2011 FOHBC Memphis National Bottle Show & Sale. After much promotion, fanfare and advance publicity (which is not the way to get a bottle cheap!) the bottle was finally auctioned on 25 June 2011. After rather spirited on-line and floor bidding, the eventual hammer price was $5,460.00. Ouch.
I possess quite a few unlisted and/or extremely rare bitters bottles and this is one I will cherish with the rest.
