White Seal Whiskey

After ripping down some siding and prepping the house for new cedar shingles, I headed back home for a little lunch. And, after gobbling up some leftovers, I decided to hit eBay for a couple of minutes before heading back to the house.

And, interestingly enough, there was an 1897 Williamson Bottle Roundlet listed with a buy it now. At first, I thought it was a Dewars Whiskey roundlet, and felt the price was a bit high.

However, after looking more closely at the listing, I clicked the buy it now button, as this is not a Dewars, it instead carries an advertisement for White Seal Whiskey.

The badge on the little bottle reads, “COMPLIMENTS OF EDWIN LARRABEE, HEADQUARTERS FOR WHITE SEAL WHISKEY, LAFAYETTE AVE, DETROIT.”

Interestingly, after snapping the piece up, I checked Don Bull’s website where he put together a list of various bottle and bullet roundlets… White Seal doesn’t appear on the list!

I am sure there are other White Seal roundlets out there, do you have one in your collection???
