    Piso's Cure

    Here are some of my Piso Cure bottles. I collect anything related to the Piso company(Hazeltine & Co Warren PA). Trade Cards, postcards, bottles, advertising items. I have a paperweight that is embossed just like the Piso Cure bottles. I know they are nothing special but I like the pursuit of looking for different colors in them. I have crystal clear which is tough, different shades of aqua, different shades of greens, yellows which are really tough. I am especially looking for a dark dark one that would be black, is there such a thing as a cobalt blue one??? Enjoy the pic. Sorry it's not a little better, it's an old pic. Best regards! idigjars [:)]

    Very nice, Paul. Was Piso's Cure a patent medicine? Just curious. [;)]

    RE: Piso's Cure

    Yes, diggerboy it was a patent medicine. The company started around the late 1860's early seventies. I've never seen a pontiled example but do have hinge mould varieties so at least 1870's. They started making their calendars I think in 1879. I have all the examples from 1882 on. Take care. [:)]

    RE: Piso's Cure

    Thank you for thinking of me Matt! Hey Matt I was wondering if you got that dose glass from awhile back?

    If you won it and haven't tried cleaning it yet I would be more than happy to clean it for you for free. After all, you gave me and a whole bunch of folks here a Christmas present of your Medicine info. I would even pay the shipping back to you. Let me know if I can help and again, thanks for thinking of me.
    Paul

    RE: Piso's Cure

    Nice set, Paul. The yellows, the clear and especially the cornflower blue are awesome. I keep every Piso's I get my hands on from our digs. They're a cool bottle with all the color variants. I also have an aqua one with very crude embossing. It almost looks like a kid did it with a crayon [:D]. My other common aquas have the standard fairly neat letters. I thought the crude one was neat. ~Jim

    RE: Piso's Cure

    Hi Jim, can you post the pic of your bottle or send it to me through email? I would love to see it.

    Thanks all for looking at the Piso's. I really like them. I have a kind of neat go-with. It is a big hunk of glass slag that has the Piso embossing on it. Kind of wonder if it wasn't glass put into a mold to warm the mold and instead of throwing the glass back into the pot to make more bottles it got tossed? Anyway, I can post a pic of that if anybody is interested.

    Again, Thanks for looking at the post and good luck everybody with your collecting, digging, and finding items for your collections. Paul

    RE: Piso's Cure

    Hi Paul, I'll get a picture of the crude aqua Piso up soon. Your heavy piece that resembles a Piso bottle was probably a mold warmer piece. I've never seen one of a Piso bottle before, that's a great go-with. I have seen some of other bottles that were found near old glass plant sites. ~Jim

    RE: Piso's Cure

    Here are a few Piso pics for you. First, my limited color run of Pisos. We usually just find the aquas, so any shade of green is a treat. The amber 30s junker adds another color.
