Final Bid
 

97. “BERKSHIRE BITTERS - AMANN & CO / CINCINNATI, O.”, (Ring/Ham, B-81), Ohio, ca. 1865 - 1875, deep olive amber shading to a yellow amber in the feet and snout, 10” long, smooth base, sheared and ground lip.

Very crude pebbly glass, perfect condition. One of the nicer ones! This is the long fat variant. Purchased from Jim Mitchell in 2008.

 
14 $ 3,250
 

98. “BOURBON WHISKEY / BITTERS”, (Ring/Ham, B-171), Massachusetts, ca. 1865 - 1875, copper puce barrel, 9 1/2”h, smooth base, applied mouth.

Perfect condition and having a considerable amount of wavy glass surface swirls throughout. Purchased from Jan Seneker in 1972.

 
5 $ 500
 

99. “BROWN’S / CELEBRATED / INDIAN HERB BITTERS - PATENTED / 1868”, (Ring/Ham, B-225), Pennsylvania, ca. 1868 - 1875, medium yellow green (citron) Indian Princess, 12 1/8”h, smooth base, inward rolled lip.

A tiny chip, about 1/8” in size is off the top edge of the lip, otherwise in pristine condition. A very pleasing to the eye and important color! Most all bitters collectors want one, but very few do! Purchased from Mike Henness at the 2008 Reno Bottle Show.

 
4 $ 9,000
 

100. “CHAS. NICHOLS JR & CO. PROPS / LOWELL, MASS. / DR. CHANDLER’S / JAMAICA GINGER / ROOT / BITTERS”, (Ring/Ham, C-127), Massachusetts, ca. 1875 - 1885, medium yellowish amber barrel, 9 3/4”h, smooth base, applied double collar mouth.

An early trade card accompanies the bottle. Some light internal haze and light scratches, mostly away from the embossing. Of all the Lowell, Massachusetts bottles, (and there are many), most collectors consider the Dr. Chandler’s Bitters to be the most desirable. Purchased from Gary Koltookian in 2004.

 
9 $ 9,500
 

101. “THE / FISH BITTERS - W.H. WARE / PATENTED 1866”, (Ring/Ham, F-46), Pennsylvania, ca. 1866 - 1875, medium yellow green fish, 11 5/8”h, “W.H. WARE / PATENT 1866” on smooth base, applied ring mouth.

Perfect condition, one of the greener ones! Purchased from Dave Sidelinger from an eBay auction.

 
6 $ 7,500
 

102. “THE / FISH BITTERS - W.H. WARE / PATENTED 1866”, (Ring/Ham, F-46), Pennsylvania, ca. 1866 - 1875, deep amber fish, 11 3/4”h, “W.H. WARE / PATENT 1866” on smooth base, applied ring mouth.

A tiny flake is off the edge of the base and the impression is weak. Considerably deeper color than most.

 
6 $ 200
 

103. “GREELEY’S / BOURBON WHISKEY / BITTERS / GREELEY’S”, (Ring/Ham G-102), Massachusetts, ca. 1865 - 1875, medium copper puce barrel, 9 3/8”h, smooth base, applied mouth.

A tiny flake is off the outer edge of the lip. Nice medium color density that displays perfectly in any lighting. Purchased from Cobweb Bottles in 1970.

 
1 $ 450
 

104. Unembossed Pig Bottle, (similar to Ring/Ham, S-217), American, ca. 1880 - 1890, clear glass with amethyst tint, 9 1/4” long, smooth base, tooled lip.

Perfect condition. Purchased in 2005 from a Bottles & More auction.

 
19 $ 325
 

105. Unembossed Barrel, American, ca. 1865 - 1875, light to medium yellowish olive color, 9 3/4”h, smooth base, applied mouth.

A flat 1/8” chip is off the top of the lip, otherwise perfect. Wow, this would be a great one if it were embossed!

 
14 $ 1,100
 

106. “E.E. HALL NEW HAVEN / E.E. HALL’S / BITTERS / ESTABLISHED 1842”, (Ring/Ham, H-10), Connecticut, ca. 1865 - 1875, yellowish olive amber barrel, 9 1/4”h, smooth base, applied lip.

It appears that the top of the lip has been textured, possibly to remove minor chipping. This is a different color for an E.E. Hall’s, it’s not amber and it’s not yellow green.

 
4 $ 210
