Rawleigh Corn Remedy:
W. T. Rawleigh Co., Freeport, Illinois
Early labled bottle with complete original label for Rawleigh’s Corn Remedy manufactured by The W. T. Rawleigh Co., Freeport, Illinois. Clear glass bottle stands 3.5” tall and is not embossed but does have a ribbed design on the lower portion of the neck. The glass is in good condition with numerous striations and lines in the glass that I believe are from when it was manufactured. These flaws in the glass look like cracks in the photos but I guarantee that they are not cracks or damage but rather flaws in the bottle when it was made (circa 1915). The glass is solid and displays very nicely. The contents have long ago evaporated leaving an unusual white crystalline residue on the bottom inside of the bottle. The label is complete and in very good condition with light soiling and minor darkening. The label states “Each Fl. Oz. Contains 307 Min. Ether, 71 Min. F.E. Canabis Indica, Alcohol, 29.8%.” Desirable early quack cure bottle that contained cannabis.
