Selling a Beautiful Example of a Antique Dr. Hobson's Baby Cough Syrup Bottle & Original Retail Box & Full Original contents as well!
Made by the Pfeiffer Chemical Company, NY, NY and St. Louis, MO
This 1920's Cough Syrup Bottle set is in impeccable condition through and through. There is just one tiny side flap missing at the top of the box opening.
I am asking $60.00 for this Set due to its impeccable complete condition.

The retail box is in lovely shape with no stains or discoloration often found on these boxes. Just a side flap missing.
The 2 1/2" Fluid ounce Bottle is full and in mint condition. There are no chips or cracks. The Label on the bottle is near perfect if not perfect.

It also comes with the original wad of stuffing to keep the bottle secure in the box.

Check out the ingredients:
- 1 1/2% Alcohol ( That will sure make the baby sleep hehe).
- White Pine
- Wild Cherry
- Sassafras
- Bloodroot
- Balm Gilead Buds
- Spikenard
- Squill
- Tolu
- Senega
- Rochelle Salt
- Senna
- Tartar Emetic
- Pumpkin seed
- Wormseed
(What on earth were half of these things? Most likely all natural I suspect)?

Fun Fact:
The Pfeiffer Chemical Company (Gustavus Pfeiffer) gained control of William R. Warner and Company.
William R. Warner & Co., Inc. (Became Warner-Lambert, Now Pfizer Drug company.
