With shocking disbelief I share pictures of the legendary INDIAN HERB BITTERS – Prepared by Drs Dickerson & Stark Medical & Surgical Institute Kansas City, Missouri that walked in the door of the St. Joseph, Missouri Bottle & Insulator Show this past weekend.
Ladies & Gents…The Kansas City Queen
16 March 2012
I have a top 10 want list that I suppose others of you have also. Let me tell you. This wasn’t even on it because I doubted one existed. I had always heard rumors of one existing in a museum somewhere but my questions over the years have resulted in no confirmation. I am now hearing one exists in an Iowa museum that I will track along with the new find. I am going to hold back on the rest of the story because I have been asked to. I quite honestly am disappointed that this is not mine after an effort of some magnitude. Obviously not enough though.
Kudos to the buyer and thus quick seller. Someone has a great bottle.
