RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

Hi Charlie .... handsome looking Clevenger !
Out of curiosity ...... Can you see a ghosted Simon's Centennial Bitters , or maybe where it was slug plated or peened from the mold ????
I have heard of several Clevenger Simon's having ghosted letters.
Thanks , Brian

RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

I had intended this thread to be mainly about Clevenger, but I seem to have taken it into other categories as well...as it seemed easier at the time to just continue on this one...hmmmm.
Maybe I can get the title changed?

Anyways: ever go in Ebay and in the Search bar ,type Bitters? I did recently and most of the "bitters" were either Wheaton or repos.[:eek:]

EXample:these are a couple of "Fantasy Bitters". I have seen these before with TCW embossed upon the base..indicating it is a Wheaton bottle.

Here's a Crownford China Co. marked bottle with label, that is a repo of the Warner's Safe Kidney & Liver Cure, but in green!

ORIGINAL Simon's Centennial Bitters/Bust of Washington. Last time I looked it was over $800.00 on Ebay.



Lots of differences between this authentic one and the Clevenger Bros. example above, huh...yep.

Hey Charlie ,
Yeah I saw that one ! It was under 300.00 for awhile.....I thought I might bid on it.
It's over 1300.00 now , if I remember correctly. That's still darn cheap for an original !

BRIAN...I don't know if $1300 is cheap or not. Been a while since I "saw" any sold. To tell the truth: I'd rather have a Queen tho ...LOL.


Clevenger Bros. Eagle/Grapes flasks. The one on the left is a Historical Bottle Collectors of Va Commemorative.

RE: CLEVENGER BROS.

Heard the Knoxville show is no more...seems the place increased the rent 15% this year and were going up another 15% next year. Larry Acuff reportedly said "no way" and gave it up...[&:]

This could be just a rumor but I got it from a relaible source. Maybe by next June Larry will have changed his mind...who knows?


Clevenger Bros. Stoddard type decanters and one appears to be a botched attempt at a pitcher.
