Antique NITRATE SILVER Bottle NEWARK NJ COOPER LabelDescription :
Up for sale is a rare large 9 1/2 antique dark brown (amber?) glass bottle with its original Charles Cooper & Company, 194 Worth St., New York - Works at Newark, NJ paper label still attached. Glass is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks; paper label does have some wear and spots of missing paper and what was probably the residual from a drip along the left hand side of the upper and lower label. Paper towel stuffed inside because t might have been some residual nitrate silver in the bottle (some brown spots on the paper towel). No stopper.
Label really makes the bottle - great for anyone with an interest in these types of apothecary / chemist bottles - or anyone who is interested in Newark NJ history and these old turn of the century (late 1800s/early 1900s) industrial revolution factories.
