    Papillon Mfg. Co.

    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 this company?

    It was definitely a patent medicine, they had several different medicines for different things, according to this 1887 ad:

    Interesting.... it’s not too often I find an embossed bottle that only has the company name and not the product. I don’t believe they existed for very long based on the information I’ve seen. The company isn’t even listed in the Embossed Medicine Bottles book.
