Big Bill Best Bitter - Nice amber Big Bill. 12" tall and 4 1/2" at the widest point. Blown in a mold with an applied and tooled lip. This is a relatively rare bitters and as such would command a high price. Very nice bitters and a great figural.

There is some controversy over the name of this bottle. With further searching I have found it listed as "John Bull". This name is the British equivelent of the Americans "Uncle Sam". I'm not sure what this bottle contained, although bitters is still a possibility. May well be that both names are correct, just a variance in locations. When I find out more I will post it. Still a nice looking bottle. Dan.
