A Tonic that Promotes Digestion, Improves the Appetite, Invigorates the Nervous System and Purifies the Blood.
E. H. B U R N S,
I have taken a renewed and heightened interest in labeled bottles of late following posts from John Hinkle, Jack Stecher, John Panella and many others. These folks love their labeled bottles. With this said, I post about a bottle now on eBay called an Emerson’s Excelsior Botonic Bitters. This bottle is an excellent example that has a really nice label and applied top that prompts closer inspection. The photographs are also rather nice. The eBay listing is as follows:
