Here we have a vintage Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup aqua glass bottles. Each is embossed with writing (detailed below). This type of bottle would have originally held "medicine" to settle a teething baby, which was really . Today, bottles like these are known as "baby killer bottles" containing opiates, laudanum, or like these bottles, morphine. Parents would give this to their babies to put them to sleep, and sometimes it would be forever if too high a dose was given. They are all in great vintage condition, with little to no chips or cracks, except for one bottle with a very minor chip (photo #9).
Bottles read: "Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup, Curtis Perkins Proprietors"
These bottles were dug from the ground where there are still treasures of the past to be found, and sometimes, as in these bottles, still intact and in great condition. However, because they were dug, they may have some flaws to the glass. We try to describe these to the best of our ability, but there may be something we miss. Please also look at the photos. Bottles like these make great additions to windowsills, bookshelves, or even putting them on display in a bottle collection.
This listing is for one bottle. You can choose how many you would like in the drop-down menu.
They all measure about 5 inches tall.
Our bottles have all been cleaned with water, but might be able to be shined up more if you so desire. We leave them as-is since some people like that just-dug look and there's not getting that back once it's gone! They have not been tumbled.
