Circa 1860-1865 Richardson's Bitters, South Reading, Mass.

This is a classic bitters from the Civil War era in a gem mint condition. This comes pontiled, but this is an early smooth based version. It's rectangular, but 6 sided. The embossing is crisp and old style. Nice character to the glass. Hand applied ring top.

Condition: Attic Mint - structurally perfect (no dings, chips, cracks), clean, only the lightest spotty trace wear. Nice one.
