1848 Advertisement - James Wilson Prop.

Here is a bottle I saw on eBay that has everything going for it. The HADLOCK’S VEGETABLE SYRUP with an iron pontil. The name, glass crudity, bottle shape, aqua coloration and seller photographs were off the charts. I dropped a square bid of 1k before I went to bed and awoke this AM to see that it sold for $1,025.00. Oh well. It is not a Bitters but wow! Congratulations to the buyer.
