Well it has been a while! I must apologize for the hiatus, I was busy going out and digging for bottles, and in my state of bliss neglected this wonderful blog. I guess it's time to play catch up! Let's get to it, shall we?
At a club meeting I picked up a United States Bottling Co. Providence, RI blob. Normally sporting a nice embossed eagle on the shoulder, this example had no eagle, and surprise! That was unlisted.
Also from the meeting was a beautiful John E. Potter Pharmacist Providence, RI medicine. This was a rather ornate example, with embossing in a ribbon, a scale and a mortar and pestle. Add that all together and presto! An undocumented variant.
A collector of RI bottles from a certain city recently found a box of bottles he forgot he had, and boy was it a jackpot! Almost all of the bottles were unlisted. A John E. Good Importer Providence, RI quart whiskey was the first one to surface. This bottle is only listed in smaller sizes.
A familiar face was a Wm. Boardman Pharmacist Lonsdale, RI. It was yet another unlisted size at 4-7/8".
Another familiar bottle was an S.W. Himes & Co. Pharmacists Phenix, RI. At 4-1/2" it was also an unlisted size.
