Collected: Cure For Human Flesh

In Appreciation of Bottles

One of the oddest antique medicine bottles I've collected yet, this multi-sided (10) bottle features a great inscription Kendall's Spavin Cure for Human Flesh. Not sure what the "Spavin" references but the ingredients were alcohol and ether, taking the whole bottle wouldn’t have been a very good idea.

The bottom is clad with Enosburg Falls VT and the remains of a shrivelled up cork jingles about in the empty bottle.
