Comments

My daughter and son-in-law recently bought a farm established in 1783. While preparing to renovate the house, we found 2 bottles. Both had the name "Dr August Koenigs" on the side. One had the name "hamburger tropfen" on the other side. Dr. Koenigs practiced in Philadelphia in the early 1900's. The bottle was not packaged like yours pictured.
