    Tobias Venetian Horse Liniment variations

    I have a few variations on Venetian Horse Liniment...smooth base, hinge mold, open pontil, 'flint' glass. I am trying to find an iron pontil one, if there is one out there. Jim Holst's Liniment book lists it as a possibility. Anyone ever seen one?Click image for larger version.

    I've wanted one of those to go with my Collier's Remedy for ages. Now, I see why I can't find one. You've got 'em all! Beautiful grouping!

    Nice group! I have dug two oval Dr. Tobias Liniment bottles which are the newer 1880s-1890s variants.

    Yes, the oval ones are the human ones....containing the exact stuff :-) The Horse liniments show up on eBay regularly and usually for low prices. The smooth base, applied lip version is the most common.
