The Indian Queen Bitters bottles were from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and thought to be from Neail N. Brown. These Indian Queen Bitters bottles are quite collectable with advance bitters bottle collectors trying to achieve color runs. These bottle in the color amber is quite common. Buts other color like aquas, greens, yellows and clear and even original painted queens are very scarce to rare and command big dollars. Painted examples were most likely to have a ground top.

Below are photos of a common amber color queen. The embossing reads BROWN'S / CELEBRATED / INDIAN HERB BITTERS //PATENT 1867.
