One of the things I’ve always wanted to do, but have never done is to dig a Warner’s Safe Cure. A garden variety Kidney & Liver Cure would do. I’m not picky. Just the thrill of seeing that profile of a safe emerge from a trash pit would pretty much do me in. Truly buried treasure. Recently, I discovered a website that I recommend to you called The Australian Antique Bottle Forum. This great site brings together all manner of bottle collectors from down under. Needless to say, I had to check out the Warner’s collectors and, to my delight, I found quite a few.
One of the posts that immediately caught me eye was on Warner’s Safe Cures that had been recently dug. Feast your eyes on these beauties from the Melbourne and Dundein (4-Cities) Offices. Did I happen to mention that all of these came out of one hole? I need to go digging with Steve.
Okay, let’s see. Melboure and 4-Cities Safe Cures in various shades, two Melboure Safe Medicines, two 4-Cities Diabetes Cures (rare), two Melbourne and one 4-Cities Rheumatic Cures (really rare), a Melbourne Safe Nervine and a Safe Remedies and three H. H. Warner & Co. Ltd. bottles. What else do you need? If I had been in that hole, I would have passed out. Really nice stuff. Keep those great Warner’s coming!
