Description

A very nice old bottle, McElree's Wine of Cardui, said to have been used for female complaints.  The Chattanooga Medicine Co. was started in 1879 by Rev. R. I. McElree.  His tonic became successful instantly. The front and back of the bottle are blank, one side reads McElree's Wine Of Cardoui, the other Chattanooga Medicine Co.

This bottle does have a purple tint, many bubbles, and some lines in the glass around the top.  These are not chips or cracks.  It stands approx. 8 1/2 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches across the front.  There is some light fogginess inside.
