    Elliman's Embrocation look-a-likes

    My new veterinary embrocation bottle arrived while I was in Texas getting my youngest settled in for her 2nd year of college. I had not realize until the last few years that there was a sort of embrocation shape. Elliman's is a very common bottle, not only in England but here in the US as well. There are a few others that are the same shape and much harder to find, especially here in the States. I don't know if this was just a popular shape or if they were trying to ride the coat tails of a very successful Elliman's. If you see a bottle of this shape you may want to check the name...anything other than Elliman's may be worth trading off to a veterinary collector. By the way, only the Elliman's Royal Embrocation was for horses. The smaller Elliman's Embrocation was in a different shaped bottle and meant for humans....though it was probably the same stuff!
    The picture is not too good. I have a terrible time trying to get a good bottle picture.

    Here's the "humans'" embrocation, sometimes embossed Elliman's Universal Embrocation.
    Melinda, I'm sure many humans used the Horse Embrocation, thinking it must be stronger ![;)]

    RE: Elliman's Embrocation look-a-likes

    I am sure they did! I wonder if it was cheaper to buy the horse embrocation?
    I would love to know what was in some of these liniments. They were probably pretty much the same.
    They put out a great book: "Horses, Dogs, Birds, Cattle. Accident and Ailments First Aid" It is pretty common...they must have printed a lot of them.
    They show the Royal and Universal embrocations in 4 different sizes and in wraps. I only have two sizes.

    It is hard to tell from the picture if the horse embrocation was cheaper as there are no volume measurements shown.

    There are also some great pictures in the book. I am not sure if these are copies of posters they issued. If so I would love to get my hands on one or two.

    Since they advertise both I guess one was for the horse and one for the rider after a day of hunting. I know I would need it!

    I was not very clear in my first post...The Elliman's I have had since the 70's. My newest is the "Stud" Company. I have some other "Stud" Company bottles but none in the "embrocation" shape.

    I found this on the web in a chat about embrocations for cycling:
    "My Grandmother used an Embrocation called 'Ellimans' BUT she used the one formulated for animals. Her saying was "if it's good enough for t' cows, it's good enough for me"! "
