Scarce SMITH’S GREEN MOUNTAIN RENOVATOR
Description: This scarce Green Mountain Renovator is from ST Albans Vermont and is in sparkling condition. Silas Smith of Georgia, Vermont, first put up this purely vegetable preparation for impurities of the blood and was warranted to cure scrofula, ulcers, fever, sores and salt rheum (from Bill & Betty Wilson – 19th Century Medicine in Glass).
Ransom A. Smith took over the company in 1884 and moved it to Saint Albans Vt (city compared to country side of Georgia Vt.) and the Company gained popularity. The early versions of the Renovator were made with Stoddard glass and are very expensive (thousands). Here you can own a very colorful, large and handsome Renovator; early Vermont Patent Medicine for a fraction of the cost.
