Hey, Montreal! That was a long way for a local druggist bottle to travel back in those days. I've got a different Bryson's Medical Dispensary bottle but haven't seen one like yours before.
Yeah, there's a fancier type with a banner. Is that the one you have?

Those are some nice finds! I've never seen a pharmacy bottle shaped like that before, is that a shape that you often get in Philly? I like that tiny plate shard too, looks like it's probably from Asia. Wonder what it what it was meant to be used for.

You don't stop surprising me. Amazing finds in great condition. The glass stopper is really wonderful.
Tell me the Lea & Perrins has embossed on the base A C B Co ?
Thx. I had to keep the stopper—the embossed aquas are cool, and I keep anything with a patent date.
The L&P base:

Sorry it's not a UK bottle. It's some variant of the Duncan.

The only other bottle I've dug that shape was an ant poison.
The Morgan is definitely an odd one for an Rx.

Far away South: Argentina
You surprise me again never seen that mark. Now I realize that your bottle was made by John Ducan & Sons. New York? NY. between 1880 and 1900.
My older ones came from England (I am in Argentina. South America ) in the same period. Al
