I popped quick for $5 on Saturday for 32 amber bottles. I didnt do bad on the bulk amber bottles purchase, I pulled this 1910's bottle, with air bubble imperfections, seams and interesting korknseal cap top from the midst of "junk" bottles. I had never heard of Red Raven Splits or Red Raven Aperient Water so I did a bit of research on the internet. I found reference to it in a book titled: "Symptomatic and Regional Therapeutics" by George Howard Hoxie and published in 1910. Apparently it was used to treat indigestion in the late 1800's and early 1900's.....maybe later than that - I don't know.
