C. & F. Hohmann

Company Names, addresses, dates1:
  Hohmann & Co, 221 H SW, Washington DC (1894)
  Charles F. Hohmann & Co, 1029 4th NE, Washington DC (1896-1897)
  C. & F. Hohmann, 1101 4th NE, Washington DC (1899)

The 1897 city directory lists the company as being run by "Charles F and Frederick Hohmann".
I assume the "HB" monogram that appears on both of the bottles below stood for "Hohmann Brothers".
