Tiny Cobalt Blue Vick’s Nose Drops Bottle with Screw Cap.
This miniature bottle is a beautiful cobalt blue color and it has the brand Vick’s embossed on one side and Va-Tro-Nol on the other. The tin screw cap is painted a ‘medicine green’ color, which adds a nice contrast to the bottle.
It originally held a “Test Sample” of nose drops, which were marketed as an aid in preventing colds in the early 1930’s.
The bottle measures almost 1 ¾” tall and ¾” across the bottom.
Condition: no cracks, chips or glass sickness; the cap has minor scratches and paint loss, but no bends, cracks or breaks; it fits securely.
What a great example of this tiny piece of history! It would be a terrific addition to an advertising or medical memorabilia collection, not to mention a cobalt glass collection.
