    Who collects cure & remedy bottles?

    Cure and remedy bottles -- that is, bottles with either of those two words embossed -- are abundant from the mid-1800s until the Pure Food & Drug Act of 1906 forced many brands off the market.

    Most diggers/collectors have some of these bottles on their shelf. Some collectors specialize in these bottles. Show us some of your bottles. Here's one to start:

    I'm not a really a collector but I'll show one of mine. I know these aren't super rare but they're such cool bottles! Nice Warner's Safe Diabetes Cure with a good looking, crude safe. Enjoy!

    Trojan Medicine Co. of Lyons, Michigan. History unknown. I found only a 1907 reference.

    Glad to see some cures! That is a good, strong strike on the Warner's bottle!

    Let's see some more. Here's an unlisted one from my shelf:

    I just bought the fan, because I have the wooden box the medicine came in, see pics.
    Box is 6 1/2" long X 2" wide X 1 1/2" deep.
    Thee was no bottle in the box so don't know if it was embossed or paper label, thanx, Doyle

    It's unlisted in Knapp's 2006 Guide. Good luck finding the bottle . . . let us see it when you find one!

    I found that Ague Cure bottle many years ago while scuba-diving a river.
