Dollard's Herbaniium Extract

<< >>
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 probably dates around 1920. The alcohol content is listed to comply with the 1906 Food and Drugs Act. Claims that the product is a valuable remedy for headache, which were present on early packaging, have been omitted from the label.
