A Very Rare D. Mortimores Great American Fever & Ague Tonic St. Louis Mo.
D. MORTIMORES GREAT AMERICAN FEVER & AGUE TONIC
Hi Ferdinand…Here’s one you might not see listed in the pontiled medicine books. A very rare D. MORTIMORES GREAT AMERICAN FEVER & AGUE TONIC ST. LOUIS MO. How can you not love a name like that! A beautiful whittled and crude, 10 sided, open pontiled midwestern medicine.
How can you not love a name like that!
I acquired this fine sparkling example from a guy who dug it in St. Louis, and was very happy to be able to add it. Amazingly, it’s a bottle that not even was in the incredible Greer collection. Mike Dolcini mentioned to me that he dug one many years ago in Sacramento, California of all places. That one was a long ways from home! I thought you might enjoy some photos. Keep up the great work, we love your informative and exceptional website. Tim Henson
[PRG] Thanks for sending the pictures and info Tim! This bottle is simply fantastic. Great find and addition to your collection.

The one I dug in Sacramento was the only one the I had ever seen or knew of until recently. I asked about the bottle and examples and info showed up on the Antique Bottle Forum. Gotta love the net. Very interesting bottle that was purloined away years ago.
