three pharmacal glass bottles

three pharmacal glass bottles

Description:

Three pharmacal glass bottles that were found in the Tenquille Cabin area by Stew McNolty. a) is a medium Listerine clear glass bottle with a cork screwed on top (as well as a metal ring split on one side on top of the cork) and also has the names inscribed with "Lambert Pharmacal Company" below the other inscription of "Listerine". The company, Lambert Pharmacal, was found in 1885 by Jordan W. Lambert in St. Louis, Missouri. Their products mainly consisted of pharmaceuticals and the company still remained in the same area. In 1926, it was set up as a holding company until in 1955 when it merged with another company of Warner-Hudnut Inc. It then dissolved in the year of 2000 when Pfizer Inc. took over Warner's position. Stew says that when Pioneers worked in the mines the air was so dry in the high alpine that they often took listerine with them to soothe their sore throats. b) is the second clear glass bottle that is smaller and wider in size with a rusted metal lid and has the inscriptions of "Trade Mark- Vaseline"on the top and "Chesebrough - New-York" below. The company Chesebrough was found in 1859 by Robert Augustus Chesebrough. He was a chemist who had an interest making oil products for medical needs and thus created the first petroleum jelly by refining rod wax. The company merged with Pond's Cream in 1955 and along with in 1987 Chesebrough was brought by Unilever (Anglo-Dutch Company). c) is medium sized with a metal cap and the glass is brown in colour. The bottle is unknown of where it came from and what type it is, as there is no inscribed brand name, although by assumption with the other two bottles, it may be related to pharmaceutical products.

The identical bottles a) and b) on the back reads the slogans "Seven-Up - You Like It, It Likes You" on top and "fresh up- with 7 UP" while ingredients are listed in the middle. The company was first found in 1920 by Charles Leiper Grigg when it was originally named the Howdy Corporation and the product name was later shortened to "7 UP Lithiated Lemon Soda" to presently "7 UP" in 1936. d) is a Mountain Dew green glass bottle with illustrations of a farmer and a pig on the bottom and on the top a profile of the farmer painted with the colours red and white. On the front below "Mountain Dew" reads "Filled By Bill And Dot" and on the right side describes what the soda is made out of. On the back has the slogan of "It'll Tickle yore innards!" with another portrait of the farmer lined with white paint. The company Mountain Dew was found in 1940 by Barney and Ally Hartman and is now a shared brand with PepsiCo. The formula of Mountain Dew was changed a few times, from such years of 1958 to 1961 and had the production rights bought by the company Pepsi-Cola in 1964. e) is a Pepsi-Cola clear glass bottle with both printed labels on the top with one reading the same name and the other with "Pepsi". It is a merged company with Pepsi-Cola and Frito Lay Inc. back in 1965 but has since gained independence from distributing other food/beverage products. f) is a brown-orange coloured glass bottle reading "Orange Crush" on the front and the back reads "This Special Bottle Protects The Delicate Fruit Flavour And Fresh Taste". It was discovered in 1906-1911 by Neil Ward and Clayton Howell when it was formerly called "Ward's Orange Crush". g), h), and i) are unknown branded bottles, although i) on the bottom reads "Heinz", in which it may have been a condiment bottle.
