Item: 406  Description: Dr. Jayne’s Fart Preventer. Well, the good doctor used more polite language, calling this product “Carminative Balsam”. Carminatives are a group of herbs with the medicinal benefit of providing relief from flatulence. Dr. Jayne was a leader in the “patent medicine” field and his company produced an annual almanac. One website says the company distributed 500,000,000 (500-Million) almanacs in a ninety year period starting in 1843. This bottle is of 1880’s style of manufacture. The aqua glass is so light in color that I used a black background for two of the pictures.  Grade B-Plus: Tiny nick on the lip as visible in View 2.
Estimate: $30 - $40  Open: $15
