I have this bottle listed on eBay and it has attracted a lot of attention. I am new to this hobby and am wondering what the most desired trait of this bottle is. I really like the wavyness of the glass. Aesthetically pleasing. Or would it be the type of medicine? Life root seemed to be used to reduce labor pains, but now is known to cause cancer among other things.

Just trying to get a handle on good traits to look for.

I saw that. The embossing, size, crudity, condition, pontil all make it desirable. The only thing that would make it any better, and it would be exponential, would be for it to be in a color like olive green, yellow amber, sapphire blue, or a medium puce. A boy can dream, can't he?

Great bottle. Best of luck.

The word Pontil will get anybody's attention more then anything. It's gotta be old if it's pontiled. LEON.
