Found this guy at a bottle dump yesterday... all I can determine is that Papillon Mfg. Co. became insolvent in 1888 from some Illinois Circuit Court documents.
Does anyone know any any more about...
Thanks guys. The recessed embossed panel, single-threaded screw top, and thick glass had me hoping it's closer to 1927 than 1950.
Leon The dig site is now off limits. That and most of my heavy digging days are behind me. Im kind of a scratcher NOW.
I agree. More than likely the company's first mold.
It's certainly not a particularly late example. I can't tell much about specifics but I'd be pretty surprised if it's post-1940s. Could definitely be from the late 20s, I don't know any specifics...
Those are nice, I like them, I'd go back & dig for more if you can. Nice Finds. LEON.
By protecting do you mean preventing them from fading? Keep them in a room that doesn't get sunlight, for example using blackout curtains. Or if there is sunlight don't let it be direct. Low humidity...
