RESEARCH: "Cures" are another desirable medicine bottle category. To qualify for this category the bottle must have the word "cure" embossed in the glass.
Very few cure collectors want bottles which say cure only on the label. There are over 1,500 known bottles embossed with the word "cure" produced from the 1850s to the early 1900s. Most cures are either clear or aqua and sell from only a few dollars to seventy-five dollars or more. Amber cures frequently are more salable and cures in other colors may bring hundreds of dollars. Cures with original labels will bring a premium price compared with an unlabeled specimen.
Estimate as "cure" bottle value $65.00
