This earlier to mid 1800’s bottle stands approximately 7 1/2 inches high and remains in excellent condition with no chips, cracks but with a minor bit of staining to the inside as evidence of period use. (Could be easily removed and cleaned but we would leave it as is.) 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! :
