DESCRIPTION - I have for sale what I believe is an EXTREMELY RARE pre-prohibition whiskey liquor bottle or flask. The bottle says on it – Father Time Rye Whiskey Phil Freiler Elgin, ILL. The bottle is made of clear glass and stands about 7 inches tall. It is about 3 ½ inches wide. The bottle has a ground lip and I would date it around 1900 – 1910. I have searched the web over and cannot even find a picture of this bottle.
FYI – Regarding Phil Freiler - Listed first (1884-1887) as Phil. Freiler, redistiller & wholesale wine & liquor mechant and Prop. of Elgin Boss Sample Room. Later listings show him as Philip Freiler, Wholesale & Retail Liquors.
Elgin was the home of the world-reknowned Elgin Nation Watch. Their symbol was Father Time which is where the name of Freiler's famous whiskey comes from. Philip Freiler, was a respected, community-minded Elgin businessman despite whiskey being the source of his wealth. Elgin went dry in 1914 and the business was closed. Freiler died in 1916.
CONDITION - This item is in what I would consider to be VERY GOOD condition. There is a ding in the threads of the lip of the bottle that is noticeable. Other than that, there are NO other chips, cracks, or dings. There is also some light but noticeable stain in the interior of the bottle.
