Description: I.N. Thorn was an established druggist in Brattleboro, Vt., in the mid-1850s and compounded his extract of hops in the early 1870’s. His son, I.B. Thorn, joined him in business a few years later. By the 1890’s the firm was styled as Thorn’s Medicine Co. and was also selling a Vegetable Cough Cure - a very scarce Vermont Cure (Courtesy of Bill & Betty Wilson). Other products included the "Hop and Burdock Plaster” the "Hop and Burdock Pill" and "Thorn's Sarsaparilla.”
Note: I have included a photo showing both size variants as well as colors variation.
