N.O means New Orleans
Tim Henson forwarded me an email and pictures of an interesting bottle that I have not seen before. I love the ‘Rheumatism & Gout Annihilator’ part. New Orleans bottles are always fun to look at. There is a fantastic example of a DR. HYDE’S SOUTHERN STOMACH BITTERS from New Orleans in the current American Glass Gallery | Auction #8. The Hyde’s reminds me of the famous New Orleans DR. DE ANDRIES SARSAPARILLA BITTERS. Both the Hyde’s and the De Andres are pictured further below. All three of these bottles have similarities. Tim’s email…
Here is a very interesting amber square that so far I haven’t seen or heard of another. I was wondering if possibly you or any other collectors have seen this particular bottle before? A great southern medicine in a bitters or tonic form and from New Orleans. Embossed in three sunken panels N. Jenkins N.O Rheumatism & Gout Annihilator. Nice applied top and the panel is sunken in considerably on the N. Jenkins N.O side. There is no period after the O in the New Orleans abbreviation. The base has a cool embossed star that is slightly sunken and wavy too. I’d love to know more about this bottle if anyone had any information!
