Twiaba Warranted. Aqua patent medicine style bottle, elongated hexagon, applied top, full of sea bubbles, semi crude, never professionally curated. See Holabird, Vol. 2, p377-383. The Twiaba bottle dates from about 1872, when it was distributed from Elko and Eureka, Nevada. The Twiaba product was patented in March 1871. It contained a hair restorative of white sage. The Holabird article, which shows three different shades of aqua, discusses white sage around the Elko and Eureka areas in some detail. There is a remote chance that the white sage used for this cure was a special white sage known to the Shoshone to grow up to 12 feet high and have exceptional flowering during blooming season. There are thought to be about a half a dozen of these cares known today. City: Elko/Eureka State: Nevada Inventory Number: 38177
