This is a family heirloom called Haller's Pain Paralyzer, bottled between 1906 (opium was required to be listed on the label in 1906) and 1914 when Opium was outlawed in the USA. The next 2 pictures are of the 1912 Haller Heath Guide and an ad for Haller's Pain Paralyzer. The next 2 pictures are a 1912 picture postcard of a Haller traveling medicine buggy, and the writing on the postcard by Geo Olsen who's pictured on the postcard. The next 2 pictures are of a Victorian Puzzle Trading Card, and the ad on the back (I'm not sure about the date, but probably between 1900 and 1914).

This picture is of a Haller's Pain Paralyzer bottle made before 1906 (I do not own this bottle). The Haller Proprietary Company ran from 1888 to 1921, when it was sold to a previous employee, and it's name changed to the Haller Company.

The next picture is of a purple Pain Paralyzer bottle. The Pain Paralyzer bottles have a ring on the neck, unlike all the other Haller Proprietary Company bottles, like this next picture of a Horse Colic bottle.

Mods, somehow I accidentally posted this in the wrong area. I meant to post it under General Chat About Bottles.

Sorry about that.
