That's a shame it's a reproduction, but it's still a beautiful bottle. Apparently Clevenger Bros were making reproductions of these in the early-mid 30s, so that's pretty close to being 100 years old by now.

Yes it's a 1930's repro, very early

Interesting comments, I have heard of the Clevenger reproduction but was uncertain about the date. Unfortunately my grandfather had passed away before I took an interest in the bottles. My father always believed it to be genuine. A few more of my favorites.

An amazing group of bottles, that blue poison is killer, as is everything else

I am 78 and the 3rd generation and current caretaker of a fairly extensive collection of bottles. This bottle has been in our family for over 100 years and was acquired by my Grandfather. I believe it to be original; however, thought I would put it out for discussion.
The EG Booz figural cabin bottle is one of the best known and desired bottles by collectors. The Clevenger brothers of Clayton NJ started making reproductions of erarly American glass in 1930 and were the first to reproduce early mold blown glass, the Booz bottle being one of their most popular reproductions. It's an example of a reproduction being a desirable collectible. I have one and it's a valued part of my collection of antique bottles.

Your family has some excellent taste in bottle collecting. Some of the great figural bitters there.
