Rare WEEK’S MAGIC COMPOUND – ST. JOHNSBURY, VT.

weeks magic compound st johnsbury vermont early medicine antique bottle

Description:  This is a rare and desirable Vermont medicine from the Northeast Kingdom town of Saint Johnsbury. The Weeks Magic Compound can be found in a smaller size, however the larger sized “Magic Compound” is much more difficult to locate.   I have seen only a few of these larger examples turn up in the last 15 years. There is also a pontiled example, I saw one auctioned 30 years ago.
Digger Odell’s Pontiled Medicine encyclopedia provides this information, “Manufactured and sold by E.B. Magoon & Co. (1860) St. Johnsbury
Rectangular with indented panels, early smooth base, 7 ½"H, applied sloping collar, strongly embossed, rich aqua color.  American, C. 1865, rare.
