This Bitters Bottle Is Super Scarce & Very Rare and is In Excellent Condition. This Lippman's Great German Bitters Bottle With New York and Savannah Embossed On It Is practically Impossible To Find. Lewis (born 1841), Jacob (1843 1908) and Lawrence Lippman (1846 1920) were sons of Joseph (born about 1808) and Barbette Lippman who were from Reichmansderf, Bavaria.
Joseph and Barbette arrived in Philadelphia from Germany in 1838. In 1850, the Lippmans were residing in Savannah, Georgia and are listed as merchants in the US Federal Census report for that year. What is curious and unknown to me, is why some of the Lipmanns go back to New York?The Lippman brothers, under the name Jacob Lippman & Bro. Advertising stated that the Bitters was prepared from the original German recipe now in possession of the proprietors and is the same preparation that was used in Germany upwards of a century ago. There are two different bottles with slightly different embossing. Savannah is noted on both bottles while New York is embossed on the earlier variant.
There are no chips, cracks, dings or anything of that nature. You may return this bottle if not as described, of course.
There are some bubbles that are shown for complete transparency, if that is a distraction for you. The item "The Great German Lippman Bitters, New York And Savannah, Geo.
