Sulphate of Quinia Bottle-Powers & Weightman
Item #: NEW-0013695

Click image to enlarge
Vintage bottle which measures three and a half inches tall.  Hair line fracture running from the right bottom edge of the paper label to the mid back of the bottle.  See second scan. I can see some imperfections in the bottle which may mean it was hand blown.  Bottles are not an area of expertise to me.  I was told that it was a Civil War era bottle.  There is a history on the web about  Weightman, who was a prominent chemical manufacturer.  Powers joined him in 1814. This concoction was used to treat "typhus" fever. This would be a nice item for a medical collector.
