    Honey amber monogrammed bottles. Local druggist?

    Found these while digging today and I need help to idenify them. One still has the cork. They are BIM and have only the monogram embossed. What is this company? Has anyone seen this bottle before?

    Some images:

    Thanks for the reply. They are nice! No markings on the base. I believe the letters could be D W M and H which could be representative of Dr. W.M. Hill the druggist in Noank, CT (A very small hamlet of Groton, CT that had less than 1,000 people in 1900). If they are from there they are the only Noank druggist bottles known to exist. If anyone else finds another match for the letters please tell me!

    I don't know much about the logo but feel like I've seen it somewhere before. Maybe on Ebay. Run a photo of the logo or bottle through Google images and see if you get any similar results.

    Interesting pair! Don't want to disappoint you but the monogram would be for a name only and would be very unlikely to include Dr. as part of it.

    I've dug one of these in Galveston, Texas, so I think they are from a big company. I haven't figured out what one yet though!

    Just a guess. Hope I will find a Noank druggist some day! There were at least three of them. I really wish I could figure out the company of these bottles!

    The monogram looks like thorns are part of the image. Strange

    Similar bottle with monogram is on E-bay . It's a Hyson Westcott Dunning from Baltimore MD.
