These medicinal bottles were recovered from the dump at the Security Benefit Home and Hospital Association in Shawnee County. All four bottles have a small mouth external thread finish (the top of the bottle). The bottle on the far left has no bottle maker's mark, but the cobalt blue bottle next to it has the mark of the Maryland Glass Corporation of Baltimore, Maryland, who manufactured cobalt blue bottles exclusively for their subsidiary, the Emerson Drug Company. The other two brown bottles were both manufactured by the Owens Illinois Glass Company of Toledo, Ohio. The smallest bottle still retains most of its metal screw-on cap.

Date: 1919-1950
