Found this one at the back of bottom shelf in an antique shop. Was coated inside with dried clay and dirt. Ayer's Ague Cure was 1870's-80's treatment for malaria. An old one for sure--7 in tall.

Hi GP Dave, & Community,
You cleaned it up real nice... I'm currently cleaning an Ayer Hair Vigor about a decade older. I believe it was made in NH (and later at Lowell.) Mine has a little bluing like stain in it. I'm wondering if that's from the original content? Slightly conflicted about removing ALL of it from an other wise great aqua bot. Anywho, congrats on a nice find and restoration. :cool:

Hey GP Dave,
I looked up on Worthpoint your bot. There was one this March that sold for $25. like yours. It seemed to be about the going price for them.

Hey Len,
Good luck on your bottle clean up--sometimes they are tough.
