I have two versions of these from past diggings. On recent research, I am wondering about West Disinfecting Company, New York. https://baybottles.com/2018/07/17/cn-disinfectant-west-disinfecting-company-new-york/
The company started in the US in the late 1880s. The earlier version I have indicated Pat Pending and is embossed W.D. Co. Perhaps this is some type of early dispenser?
There is also a WDC mark listed for Doll Making - https://dollreference.com/composition_doll_marks.html. Maybe a porcelain company that also made dolls.
Also thought it could be some kind of tobacco processor for William Demuth Company, but their WDC trademark is in a triangle.
No luck on TESS Trademark searches
