This set contains three beautifully hand-blown, mid-to-late 1800's cure bottles with wonderful raised lettering. Fact: Many 19th Century bottles were made by hand by blowing air through a long tube and into molten glass that was within an iron mold. If a vintage bottle is found to have a highly-raised embossed pattern, this means that the person who made the bottle was blowing extra-hard!
