The bitters business gained strength from several periods of temperance in America during the latter 19th century and in some ways was a refinement of the patent medicine trade.The horseshoe case shown below is an earlier example, probably dating from the beginning of the twentieth century.The spare horseshoe case was only one very small piece of equipment carried by mounted troops.Like the patent medicines, bitters took a big hit after the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 which effectively ended the business of products which were alcohol and/or opiate based.Today, the market for bitters bottles is strong, especially for rare examples.
