I have a medical bottle from Marshall Medical Co. in Lawrence, Kan., and I was wondering how old it might be?

Documents at the Douglas County Historical Society show that a Marshall Chemical Manufacturing Co. existed in Lawrence between 1890 and 1892. The company did manufacture some medicines, and the bottle is most likely from this company and time period.

To verify the bottle and its value, check with the historical society or local antique dealers.
