I RECENTLY ACQUIRED THIS BOTTLE. IT IS EMBOSSED "C.O. BIGELOW INC. APOTHOCARIES 6TH AVE & 9TH ST N.Y." THIS IS NOT GENERALLY THE TYPE OF BOTTLE I COLLECT BUT I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS TOO COOL TO PASS UP. IT HAS A BLOB TOP BUT IT HAS THE DESIGNS ALONG THE SIDES OF THE EMBOSSING LIKE YOU WOULD SEE ON A CITRATE BOTTLE. I TRIED DOING A LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT THIS COMPANY STILL EXISTS TO THIS DAY AND ADVERTISES AS THE "OLDEST APOTHECARY IN AMERICA". THIS IS A LINK TO THEIR "HISTORY" PAGE ON THEIR WEBSITE. IT IS PRETTY INTERESTING. https://www.bigelowchemists.com/our-history I WAS HOPING TO FIND MORE ABOUT THIS BOTTLE IN PARTICULAR BUT I COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING ON OR ANOTHER EXAMPLE SHOWN. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS BOTTLE IS CONSIDERED RARE OR AM I JUST NOT LOOKING HARD ENOUGH!?!

Well, it's what we do this hobby for, to drive ourselves into a foamy froth at the mouth researching every angle. Nice example to have in your collection.
