I’m unsure of when in the timeline of Dr Craig bottles this one falls, but a few interesting parts…
Label is 100%
It’s been double labeled
The trademark and logo don’t match any I can find (word trademark in the globe)
It’s not embossed
Still has the cork and residue inside
I’ve had this bottle stored away for over 35 years. I found it when I was a kid.

That is incredible! Are you considering parting with it?

Craig started his business in 1871 with a clear paper labeled bottle. Around 1875 he contracted with an outside firm to market his product and actually had two different paper labels for the bottle you show. So it was made from 1875 -1878 or so. In 1879 Craig sold the rights to H.H.Warner and Warner also bought the rights from other companies Craig had sold rights to. Craig was not a business man. Nice bottle and an excellent example. If you decide to sell it let me know. Michael

Here is a picture of Craig's first product label on a clear unembossed bottle.

Those are great bottles too. It's amazing the difference a little marketing experience can do to a product...
