Thread: from Illinois

    from Illinois

    Hi. I'm new here, from Galena, IL. I found this bottle is the ground behind our old house, along with 3 other small clear bottles. Can anyone tell me about it? It's only 3.75" tall and it's 5-sided. It reads: Flagg's Good Samaritan Immediate Relief Cincinnati. It's not broken or chipped, just a little dirty with soil. Thank you!

    With the pontil mark on the bottom, it's pretty much pre-1860. It's in Matt's medicine nexus but only a picture of it, no information on Flagg out of Cincinnati.

    A VERY nice little medicine bottle. Perhaps some mid--west medicine expert can give you more info on Flagg. There are some serious Cincinnati collectors out there.

    Thank you both for your replies. I'm going to photograph the other three bottles I found with this one. Maybe they'll be familiar to you or to someone.
    Thanks again!

    They pop up from time to time but definitely a $125-$150 bottle based on what I have seen in the past.

    Nice find! I think you need to keep digging. I know I would if I found something like that in my backyard!

    Thanks, all. I think I'll put the bottle on the For Sale section of the Forum. (My main collection is actually antique bookends.)
