Rheinstrom Bros and “Good Luck” Bottles - 1890’s

There are two different styles of bottles made for Rheinstrom Bros of Cincinnati, OH

One style is the Creme de Menthe Claw bottle. Not to be confused with the miniature claw bottles made by Wheaten. Bottle has a Eagle and is embossed “Creme de Menthe”. The bottle is full sized and from the 1890s.

The second style of Rheinstrom Bros bottles are the “Eagle Liqueurs”. Bottle has embossing of a Eagle landing on a Shield with the RB logo. On the back it is embossed “Rheinstrom Bros. / Cincinnati, USA”. They come in 3 sizes.

In a similar style as the “Eagle Liqueurs” bottles, there are ones embossed with a Horse shoe with “Good Luck” Not sure if these are made for Rheinstrom Bros or not but shards of these also have been recovered from the Hemingray dump.
