Nice rare large pontiled medicine embossed HALSEYS / FOREST / WINE in a unique panel. This is a New York bottle ca. 1840 - 1860, aqua, 8 1/4h x 3 3/8 x 2 35/8, iron pontil, applied tapered collar mouth. There is another version that has additional embossing on the sides G.
HALSEY - NEW YORK which is more common but also rare. This one is offered with no reserve. The bottle is mint except for the in the making elongated bubble that is a 1/3 open on the chamfered corner in the back. That being said it displays mint and is not a distraction. Very crude, nicely whittled with bubbles, seeds and some partially melted sand globules.
So I would characterize this bottle as near mint. This is a sparkling example of a very difficult medicine with some major shelf presence. The photos do not show how nice it is. Do not hesitate ask questions. Good luck and thanks for looking.
