    Hello Theo, Is it weakly embossed? "ISAAC N MORTONIsaac N Morton an old time druggist of Milwaukee, Wis., and founder of the business now conducted by the Wright Drug Company, died recently at the age of 83 years in Tampa, Florida. Mr Morton had been prominently identified with the retail and wholesale drug trade of Wisconsin for a number of years. After retiring from that field, he became a member of the Chicago Board of Trade, and later on conducted a drug business in Tampa. He retired from active business in 1905." http://books.google.com/books?id=0c3...waukee&f=false See: http://www.mrbottles.com/galleryimage.asp?ID=3714

    Thanks for the info. The embossing is about the same as the one in the picture you added, it is a little weak I just did not take a good picture and the stain that is on it. It should clean up real good. Do you know the rarity or value?

    Hey Stlouis. It's a great bottle. There are very few early medicines from Wisconsin. I believe some of those early Mortons are pontilled. Almost any Wisconsin collector would like one. It's early, it has a neat shape, and it's quite rare. There are also some cobalt examples but they are a shaped differently. Nice find.
