American Life Bitters
On display is one of the great figural cabin bitters that has a curved roof rather than an angular roof like most cabin bitters. The American Life Bitters is pretty tough to obtain in either the Tiffin, Ohio, or Omaha, Nebraska variants. Our Tiffin, Ohio museum example is one of a few examples.
