Description

A beautiful original 1925 Prohibition Prescription for Whiskey...Oi (pint)...as needed! This was the fourth issue during the Prohibition which is the largest and fanciest of all the issues. During the Prohibition Spirits Frumenti was prescribed much more often than Whiskey, so Whiskey scripts are not as prevalent. The patient's surname is "Mealy"; fun to display in a restaurant! A personal favorite! Please see photos!

Also a cool link about the pharmacist and drug store/fountain: http://jewishfoodexperience.com/when-pharmacies-had-soda-fountains/

From the days of Al Capone, flappers and moonshine this was the only legal way to drink liquor in the US!

This prescription has poppies on the top corners, fleur-de-lys on the bottom and spider-webbed borders!

The whiskey was prescribed for Mrs. M. Mealy, by Dr. S. B. Castell, December 14, 1925, and was filled the same day by Pharmacist, Irving Sirota, of Sirota's Drug Store, in Washington, DC.

It was issued by the Treasury Department and is printed on fancy, beautiful paper, that was also used for U.S. currency. In the center is the old Treasury Seal with the Latin inscription, "Thesaur. Amer. Septent. Sigil.". When you hold this prescription up to the light, PROHIBITION is watermarked, as with the metal strips that are used in U.S. bills today, the graphics are GREAT!

The prescription measures 6 1/2" x 5 3/4", has a light fold, a few splits on the file punches and light age toning (not pure white/1925), otherwise, condition is excellent...a beautiful Washington whiskey script!

This is a FANTASTIC piece of history and would be great to display in a pharmacy, doctor's office, museum, bar or office! I am happy to answer any questions, please feel free to email and thank you for your interest!

Pleased to combine shipping with other Prohibition Prescriptions, Liquor Licenses, Opium Forms & Pharmacy Labels. As always, many thanks to my regular customers for your continued patronage! :)

All items ship within 24 hours and I will contact you when I receive notification of any purchase, thank you! :)
