    and that was 4 years ago. Not much info about this one on the net.

    Re: Got a new F .RAHTER. ZINCARI BITTERS BOTTLE

    I found one under an old house that relatives lived in. It was dark amber and embossed Zincari Bitters. Also found 3 more just like it but were unembossed. Two were green and one was amber. There was a Warners Safe Kidney and Liver Cure but it was broken in 3 pcs. All total there was 32 nice old bottles in the crawl space of the house and they were all in pristine shape from being in the dry dirt all those years.....Nice find and 5 bucks well spent....

    what color exactly is gasoline puce I never heard of that color... If I would have to guess it would be a puce color with a slight rainbow like gasoline gets when in a puddle of water......

    creeper71 "gasoline" puce describes the lighter shades of puce. It's all just a rough description. When I use the term gasoline puce, or just "gasoline" colored, I tend to mean the very light shades of puce. Very light. I will try to find an example.

    Thank you for your help... Now with that being said isn't the bottle in question a puce color? I am asking cause in the pics with light shining thru there looks to be a pinkish/purple to it... or am I getting colors confused? One thing for me to learn is colors... it's very diffcult sometimes to determine the color.

    Re: Got a new F .RAHTER. ZINCARI BITTERS BOTTLE

    Puce is like the blue/green/sapphire teal of the purple/pink/reddish world. It's there, but its hard to describe. But don't sweat it, teal is teal, and puce is puce. Just play it safe and call the Zincari puce. Once you have nailed that you can start qualifying specific pieces as amber puce, strawberry puce, purple puce, gasoline, a very light amber strawberry puce, etc. on and on. Hope this helps you creeper71.

    Yes Gleaner1 this does help... Now what color would you say this bottle is? I thought it was puce since the second I seen it..cause there is reddish pink tint to it... I'm curious to what color you would call it... Thanks again for all your help...

    If I had to make a description, I would say dark amber puce, but computer screens and opinions always differ.
