I have that exact same - and I mean exact same - olive oil bottle, except mine is Lewis M. Reitz & Co., Hulle d'olive superfine, Baltimore. Hard to believe they were not made by the same manufacturer. Nice find!

That'd be something. Could there have been some "generic" olive oil mold capable of being slug-plated w/ the name of the brand? Was that a thing back in 1880?

I like that slugplate blob bottle, is it a beer or soda? Leon.

I found near zero about "R. Williard" online. The area (now part of Chinatown) had a few bottlers during the blob era. I'm gonna try a few more searches.

Updated to add: There was a spring water bottler in Philly called Williard & Mountain.

Here's a picture of my olive oil. If it wasn't the same manufacturer, it was someone copying someone else - closely.IMG_20171002_202102186.jpg
