Dollard's Herbanium Extract or Vegetable Hair Wash

<< >>
Description
Dollard’s Herbanium Extract was produced by Dollard and Company of Philadelphia, Pa. The product label claims that the company had been in business since 1838. Early advertisements for the Herbanium Extract date back to at least the mid-1840s. R. Dollard appears to have been a Philadelphia wigmaker.
This bottle dates to just after 1906, and the box bears the statement, "guaranteed under the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act." The label also claims that the product is a valuable remedy for headache.
