Season's Greetings All -
Does anyone out there have any info., comments or background on this cutie I picked up a little while ago? It's just shy of 5" tall and inside a fancy oval is embossed: HEALY & FRY in arc over PHARMACISTS then 1901 ARCH ST., PHILA. in reverse arc. The base or bottom has W.T. & Co. over 1 then U.S.A. I am familiar with the company base marking, but couldn't come up with any info on the oval embossing. I thank anyone in advance that may help with this some.

It's not my type of bottle to collect, but once again, I fell in love with it and thought that I'd give it a home for a while.

Howdy tncgal -
THANK YOU! I'll keep an eye on that one for comparison, but the color can make the difference in most cases, as we all know.

Haven't seen you around lately, but I haven't been to the other forums in some time and really don't plan to. Where have you been hiding Whiskey? Have you seen him? I just may have to drop him a line. He emails me 'things' often, but not lately.

Hey Mike -
I knew that I'd seen that bottle before, the Llewellyn one. The tops on these are different from the one I picked up, but basically the same. You got the best deal out of the three, 'cause you dug yours (nice find). Below is a link for the one Downeast bought. He got a deal (I think) because it was listed wrong.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, as well!

Matt - GuntherHess - Thanks for the tip.
