Unlisted 2-Headed Indian Queen Found!
“A find that has certainly set the figural and bitters world ‘upside down’ rocks the airwaves this morning. I mean, “was it meant to be drunk from two people at once” as Bill Ham questioned? Bitters figural king Bill Taylor from Oregon thinks he might lay the queen on its side if he was fortunate enough to obtain this beauty for his shelves (possibly causing arm base wear). I myself, might start a color run of these two headed queens. Noted bitters collector Jeff Burkhardt seemed puzzled and somewhat worried about the stability of this possibly sitting in his favorite window, even though the lips seemed full and rolled perfect. Bob Ferraro from Boulder City said he might just ‘carry it with him’ or roll it up in a towel. Wow what a find!”
