Here's the "Last of the Mohicans" applied top Hotaling Sole Agent Cutter. Like the late Rodney Dangerfield they don't get no respect, but these bottles are part of the Cutter story in the American West. Widely distributed, they have been found in great numbers in just about every state west of the Rockies., This example was recently wrenched from it's 125 year resting place in a small Sacramento privy. The body of the bottle displays zero crudity, and, of course, the crown has no jewels, but the top is right of an earlier time. It is very crudely applied and has some serious spillover. That alone makes it a keeper and not relegated to the low end sales box.
