VINTAGE GREEN WILDROOT HAIR OIL TONIC BARBER BOTTLE - NICE ACL LABEL CORK TOP
Description

Up for your consideration is this very nice looking, older vintage, “Wildroot with Oil for the Hair 3-Action” dark green bottle with applied color label (ACL) lettering and decoration. This bottle stands just about 8 ½ inches tall and is in the classic hair tonic bottle style. It was found with a cork stopper, which we are leaving in place. The ACL decoration is in white and red, which stands out well against the dark green glass. We believe this is a 1930’s - 1940’s era bottle, but you may know how to date it better than we can. The pebbled base has markings which are hard to read. It appears to be an old Owings Illinois logo over the number 12. There are numbers to the left and right, which appear to be a “3” and “0”, but we cannot make them out well. A nice display piece.

CONDITION: Very Good. Complete and intact with no cracks or chips. The ACL “paint” is all legible, with only light wear. There is a spot of soiling on the inside of the bottle to the right of the front labeling which we did not attempt to clean. We’ll leave that decision up to the winning bidder. Please We always pack securely and ship promptly. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed. Should there be any problems at all, just let us know. No hassles here.
