You are bidding on a beautiful golden-amber Victorian era PAINE'S CELERY COMPOUND bottle from Windsor, Vermont. Dating between 1875-1885, this (lighter colored) golden-amber beauty is rectangular in shape and stands 9-3/4" tall by 2-1/2" square. It is blown in mold with a tapered double collar, four fully recessed panels, beveled corners, entrapped air bubbles and a classic key mold base with mold #23 in the center. It is boldly embossed on two panels as follows:


Paine's Celery Compound

MRS. SENATOR WARREN. Why Paine's Celery Compound Is Famed in Washington Families.

The natural, unchecked course of disease is from bad to worse as the fall and winter wear on. It is not that rheumatism, neuralgia, insomnia and kidney troubles are hard to cure--Paine's celery compound has made a host of sufferers well--but people make themselves chronic invalids by neglecting the first symptoms of disease. Thousands of lives that are now fast wearing out would be prolonged if Paine's celery compound were in each instance used to stop those ominous pains over the kidneys, to build up the rundown nervous strength, and cure permanently those more and more frequently occuring attacks of headache and indigestion.

Here is a testimonial recently received from the wife of United States Senator E. F. Warren, of Wyoming, whose distinguished services for the country's best farming interests are so well known: "I was persuaded to try your Paine's celery compound in the early spring, when in a very run-down condition. The duties devolving upon the wife of an official in public life are naturally very exhausting, and I was tired out and nervous when I commenced using the remedy. I take pleasure in testifying to the great benefit I received from its use, and can truthfully say that I am in almost perfect health again. If I ever find myself running down again I shall certainly give it another trial, and will in the meantime recommend it to every one needing it." Birmingham State Herald, September 19, 1896

Milton K. Paine, a pharmacist as early as the 1840's in Windsor, Vermont, began bottling his “Celery Compound” in 1882. It contained celery seed, red cinchona, orange peel, coriander seed lemon peel, hydrochloric acid, glycerine, simple syrup, water and alcohol. There is one ad with testimonials from six members of the clergy, perhaps to assure the public that it had not been overly steeped in alcohol. Another ad states that “Celery Compound Cures Disease of the Nerves, Kidneys, Liver, Stomach, and Bowels, and acts as a Blood Purifier and Tonic to the Central System”. This very successful medicine was soon marketed by the Wells, Richardson and Company of Burlington, Vermont, and they became the sole proprietors in the late 1880's.

This bottle is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips or damage of any kind other than some internal haze and stain, otherwise fine.

You will receive the exact bottle shown in the auction if you are the successful bidder.

Buyer pays $8.97 postage & packaging with prompt, secure shipping.

As always, please review my feedback profile and bid with absolute confidence.
