Prohibition bottle found. Need info!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

We found this prohibition era bottle of rye when cleaning out my parents house. I couldn’t find any information about it online so I figured I would ask the experts and see if anyone on the forum knows anything further about it. Unopened. 

 

Thank you in advance.

Never seen nor heard of this brand (no shock there, I guess); but, I'll make one observation:

The printing on this label is VERY poor.    ...Though the label does seem to be in remarkably good condition.

Is there any information with the name of a company or address?  I don't see the proof or volume either?  We don't see the top of the bottle.  The paper of the label seems in perfect condition.  I think 1920 era paper and ink would have degraded a bit even in the best storage.

 We try and be as helpful as we can with information and such, but we aren't an appraisal site. And just in case you're trolling for a sale or trade, the buying, selling or trading of alcohol without a license is illegal for all intensive purposes. That's why we don't allow it here. Even the mentioning or hinting of such is frowned upon. Not trying to be a wise guy, but I'm guessing you didn't read the site rules, or helpful hints for new members threads. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself or any of the other staff members.

It's of course possible that the label was printed on low acid paper, but that would be unlikely. Notice the text tracking on the word "RYE" as well. Looks kinda like a software job of paragraph justification to me, but WTF do I know?

Another thought because the label on the bottle says "TRADE     MARK" on it - Search the US Patent and Trademark Office database for registered TMs similar to, for example, "Old Reserve" "Old Reserve Fine Rye Whiskey" etc. as well as for catch phrases on the label like "numerous and injurious imitations" and "celebrated Brand" and similar stuff.  Even expired TMs sometimes pop up.  Also, there are myriad "free" and "fee based" commercial search sites out there.

Just curious as to why you are calling this a "prohibition era" bottle. I so no indication on the label as to when it was produced.

The verbiage about being 'recommended for Medicinal Use'...?   

Maybe; but the prohibition era bottles I've seen have all been "pint" bottles.   

My understanding is that Doctors could 'prescribe' a pint of whiskey per some period (a week?), per patient, and that all the whiskey was so packaged...no?
