Went back and found a few more pieces. The best is this very faintly embossed local pharmacy that I nearly mistook for a slick.

JW Harrigan / Graduate in Pharmacy / Philadelphia

Couldn't find much on Harrigan, other than that he graduated the College of Pharmacy in 1885 and opened his 1st location at 13th & Ritner in South Philly. A 2nd location followed in 1897-98 at 22nd & Wharton Sts.
Even with the lip chip, it's a keeper.

Went back for another look today and dug this Peterman's Discovery (bedbug killer)
Embossed: A Permanent Destroyer of Bed Bugs and Their Eggs / A Great Labor Saving Article / Wm Peterman Mfg. Chemist / New York and London

Blown, rolled lip, 1880s?
