GOLDEN SHEAF WHISKEY
Here is an interesting labeled square with a familiar name represented on the label.
You may recall that the Wormser Bros. filed for a trademark of the Golden Sheaf brand in California in Oct. of 1867.
See Wormsers posts of Feb. 2009.
I'm not sure of the relationship, if any, of Wormser and C.A. Richards. The square Richards bottle is found fairly often in the west, I seen a couple of extreme "backward N" versions over the years. Normally the bottle is quite ordinary.
This example is currently listed in the Glassworks Auction beginning July 11.
