Elixir Vitae - Dexsal - Work in Progress

Lovely old amber "Dexsal" bottle. 
In the progress of making a niche for it in a nice red book on economics.
Playing with gold leaf (as gold is money).
According to a label found on another old Dexsal bottle the contents were: "An effervescent preparation of medicinal glucose for the relief of nausea and sick headache and the treatment of all conditions involving acidosis.  Particularly effective in cases of billiousness and vomiting especially in children." 
Thought the play of antacid relief and the subject of economy might be relative at this present time.
