Hi there! I am new here but have been reading helpful posts for a long time on this site. I am excited to have a community of bottle enthusiasts to run questions by and share finds with! Does anyone have information on how rare this Provo's Sasparilla bottle made by Witch City Bottling Works in Salem, MA is? Given the association with the original owner, Ephriam Provo, bottle details and found location, I believe it to be produced around 1900. I have found other bottles from this company, but never a seafoam sasparilla. There aren't many on the Internet and info on the company is scant. Thanks in advance for any info!

I wouldn't think that it's worth too much. If the witch was embossed on the side it would help.

Maybe $5-20 for a local collector if it's rare.

Nice witch

Thanks very much! I'm actually wondering how rare the bottle is. I guess that conributes to monetary value, but I am not looking to sell. More curious how common it is.
