Here's another bottle out of my collection that I would like to share with you. It's a honey amber, non pontilled, larger bottle embossed, "Dr. A. S. Hopkins Union Stomach Biters Hartford Conn. BIM, Bubbles in the glass, 9 1/2 inches tall, seam only goes to where the tooled neck meets the shoulder. Plenty of Hostetter bottles out there but don't see any Hopkins bottles. Any info as to rarity, value etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking!
p.s. bottle stands straight up, doesn't lean like in pic.

The neck isn't tooled. The last picture clearly shows the mold line, or "seam" extending to the underside of the applied collar. Not terribly rare, but not nearly as common as Hostetters. Beautiful color and a great example. Thanks for sharing that one with us.

Of the CT bitters bottles this one is the most common, but like sandchip said not nearly as common as the Hostetter's. As far as value, one sold for $200 and another sold for only $35, so prices can vary.
