Confederate Hospital & Dispensary site - S.C. APOTHECARY BOTTLE

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

This earlier to mid-1800’s bottle stands approximately 7 3/4 inches high and remains in excellent shape with no chips, cracks or other condition issues. A nice example of a period bottle with applied top and nice bubbly aqua colored glass. One of a very small number acquired years ago when such treasures popped up from time to time, the face of this attractive pharmaceutical bottle sports the period label of G. W. AIMAR/CHARLESTOWN, S. C. identifying the bottle’s content as ‘OXALIC ACID’. Used in solution for cauterization to stop bleeding, this strong oxidant had many applications applicable to the Civil War era hospital ward to include a 6% solution in sugar syrup as an insecticide. Of special note is the fact that during the Civil War George W. Aimar’s apothecary housed the Confederate dispensary in Charleston and on the second floor, provided space for a hospital. Like so many others of all walks of life, Druggist G. W. Aimar stepped forward in a military way serving as senior 2nd Lieutenant, Kanapaux's Battery, Lafayette's Artillery, South Carolina Volunteers. A really nice Medical / Apothecary item with Confederate association. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
