QUERU'S COD LIVER OIL JELLY. Description - This odd cylinder shaped medicine was produced by Edward Queru of New York in the 1850s. The bottle is 5 1/2 tall with a wide outward rolled lip. The product was a medicinal emulsified and sweetened fish oil for feeding invalids who could not chew well. The bottle was sealed with a waxed paper lid.
This is the earlier version that has horizontal serifed embossing. This, I think, is the more attractive Queru variant. It is shorter and wider than the later versions with an earlier style lip finish. Condition - This bottle is very clean.
There are two open onion skin surface bubbles, one on the side of the lip front and one inside the bottle on the back side. There are no cracks or chips. The glass is very whittled.
