Description

A 32cl bottle of Fernet Pastene from Italy. This was distributed in the United States by Pastene & Co. Inc. We estimate this was bottled in the 1940s to 1950s.

The label reads:

Pastene Fernet is a special medicinal preparation manufactured according to our own formula. It is a stimulant to the appetite and a laxative.

Active Ingredients: Aloes, extractions from gentian, rhubarb, yellow cinchona bark, white agaric, sweet marjoram, myrhh, scammony, chamomile and peppermint leaves.

Dose: For adults, a tablespoonful; for children, a teaspoonful. It may be taken in water, coffee or straight.

Frequent or continued use may result in the establishment of a laxative habit.

Not to be taken when use of a laxative might prove harmful, such as in the case of appendicitis.

This Fernet Pastene sold at our online auction for £65
