|Vintage Syrup of Black Draught Laxative Bottle|
So one day I spied a bunch of these bottles, and took one for my very own. I think I paid ten cents for it, but can't remember for sure. The bottle is about 6 inches tall, but only about 3/4 inch thick, and the opening is about 1/2 inch across. The edge of the bottle says 'Syrup of Black Draught', which I had always thought was cough syrup, but after investigating a bit I found out it was actually a laxative!
Back last fall I stopped back by to visit with Mr. B. and get some more of the bottles ... I thought a grouping would be pretty ... but he had sold the rest of them!
My moral to this story is ... don't be afraid to get something unusual to add to your collection! Unique and unusual are often also lovely! Oh, and by the way, the pink flowers are actually camellias from my garden. Thanks for visiting today! Blessings,
