Vintage 1800s Patent Medicine Bottle - J.E. Combault's Caustic Balm


Only 1 available

Vintage 1800s Patent Medicine Bottle - J.E. Combault's Caustic Balm. 6.5" tall by 2.5" wide. A fantastic specimen of Patent Medicine cures from the pre-FDA ban on Medicine Show Men selling potentially Toxic concoctions as miracle "cure-alls" for the masses. This bottle is a lovely Aqua blue, with no chips or cracks and is very clean. Not a dug bottle, this was plucked from a drug store going out of business years ago. Now I offer it to you here on etsy. Put it your window sill, in the boudoir shelves, or on your home bar for endless conversations about what was in this curious mixture.

Front of the bottle is embossed with:

J.E. Combault's
Caustic Balm

Sides are embossed with:

The Lawrence - William Co.
Sole Props. for U.S. AND CANADA
