    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?

    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.
