WELCOME and thanks for stopping by. Rather than split these up, I have decided it's best to let them remain together and list these as a lot. These rare Kumysgen bottles do not come up for sale very often and they can be considered a quadruple threat for collectors; as they are a cross-collectible and can be placed into 3 specific categories. MILK and BLUE / COBALT glass.These bottles definitely have a unique look about them with their very wide mouth openings and beefy lips. No damage on either one and I'll mention that the larger one had a little hazing and I had it lightly tumbled. I don't believe that the Physician's Sample was ever cleaned; although I can't be positive.
It's certainly looking "attic" to me. If you're interested in purchasing this lot of two rare antique medicine / food / milk bottles, then you might also be interested in this advertising / trade card pictured below.
The larger size is a medium cobalt blue and there's just a bit of VERY light wear along with a small pot stone in the lower, thickest part of the lip that has an in making, "butterfly" or "bug" radiation (opposite the embossing on the display side) and because of the location (the thickest glass of the lower lip), I'd be confident in saying that it's not in any danger of traveling. The larger example is also nicely whittled; displays as virtually attic mint; and measures in at 8 3/8 inches. No issues whatsoever on the sample and the depth of color might be considered by some to be more of a midnight blue. Just barely a hint of a little wear. The sample is 6 1/4 inches.
Please be sure to view all 12 photos carefully; as they too, are considered as being part of the description. Which I STILL have to pay for (TWICE, because of these being listed in two different categories) even if these don't sell.
If you have time, please have a look at my other listings and remember to keep checking back for more SWEET antique glass to come in the near future. THANKS and have a great day!
