C.W. HERWIG

Another classic side panel pictorial gin from C.W. HERWIG. The panel depicts the embossing displayed on opposite sides of the Prize Medal awarded in the town of Altona in 1869. The wording " STREBE VORWARTS "  translates to " MARCHING FORWARD "

The picture on the left shows " as found " condition, while the picture on the right shows the bottle when cleaned by its new owner Larry Chipman. Larry has been aware of the existence of this particular bottle for about 10 years, so perseverance has paid off.

The Prize Medal, also acquired by Larry, is pictured below with the corresponding embossing on the side panel.
