Summary Fair

Assessor Ben Locke

Notes The acid that used to occupy this bottle appears to have stained/etched into the glass over time. Glass was cleaned somewhat but is not perfectly clear. Glass stoper still intact, minor chip at the bottom of it. Carbolic Acid label is cracked and somewhat worn.
