Medicine bottles

Three glass bottles originally used to hold medicine and carried in a saddlebag.  The bottles were used in the 1860s by Dr. B.B. Moore for his medical work in Iowa and Ohio.  The two smaller bottles, colored yellow and orange, respectively, are impressed with the words, “Glovers / Imperial distemper remedy / H. Clay Glover / New York.”
