Rare! Full Set of Three Vintage Rexall Drug Apothecary Inverted Pharmacy Show Globe Dome Display Bottles Labeled in Latin
Rare to find this full set of 3 vintage Rexall Drug (RD) apothecary inverted pharmacy display dome bottles labeled in Latin. This is a fantastic example of vintage Drug Store Pharmacy displays, & especially a Rexall Display. In the fall of 1902, a group of drugstore owners and other investors met in Chicago. Forty of them, including Liggett, agreed to purchase stock in the amount of $4,000, creating $160,000 capital to launch the new company. The organization was chartered as United Drug Company, and “Rexall,” signifying “King of all,” was registered as the primary trademark. A small factory building in the Roxbury district of Boston was leased, production and printing machinery installed, and amazingly, the first orders of Rexall proprietary medicines were shipped in mid-March 1903. The 3 Inverted domed glass bottles measure approximately 8" high & a tad over 2.5" wide. The paper labels are in Latin. The Green Bottle is labeled: RD (for Rexall Drug) with Cappile Verdae (Green Capsule) Prescription (Rexall) Department. The Red Bottle is labeled: RD (for Rexall Drug) with Tabelle Rubrae (Red Tablet). The rest of the label is discolored from age. The Orange Bottle is labeled: RD (for Rexall Drug) Pilulae Aurantiae (Orange Pill). the rest of the label is discolored from age. There are no chips or cracks. The Bottle with orange pills does have a bubble in the glass from the time when it was made. Each bottle has it's original wooden cork stopper, There is old tape over the corks, but it most likely can be removed if so desired. The bottle with green capsules does have a piece of it's cork missing, but not all of the way through. This doesn't affect it's display. There are a couple of orange pills, and red tablets that are a bit faded, but again, this does not distract from the amazing display of this rare grouping.
