Just wanting to know if the H.E. Bucklen Co. & the M.H. Malalka Co. both made TOC Dr. King's Bottles. Thanks!

Long read but well worth it.

All of the M.H. Malalka examples I have seen have been reproductions...not to say there are not real ones, but the Malalka versions in strange colors are Italy from the 1970's.

All of the colored Dr Kings are reproductions? I have a cobalt one that says Dr Kings new discovery for coughs and colds. On the side it says MH malalka & Co. on the bottom in the Illinois diamond mark with no I in the middle. I bought it at the Saratoga bottle show the first time I went back in 2011, I believe I payed $60 for it. I really hope it's not a repro, I would expect that from flea markets to be misled like that, but not a bottle show.

This is a no knowledge to the King's bottles post, just an it's always a buyer beware post.

thanks for the info anyway I know what to look for, at least with Dr. Kings bottles, not that I think I'll be buying anymore of that bottle since I've dug a few aqua ones since than. It's still a pretty bottle, but not 60 dollars pretty, live and learn I guess.
