(more information will be added when I get around to researching this druggist)
Clear 4.3" bottle embossed:
vertical: MARSHALL ST. PHARMACY / H. M. SHEILD, MGR. / COR 5TH & MARSHALL STS.
base: 2 / PAT ? 89 / C L G CO
There seems to be a double-stamping on the base, so I can't make out the patent date, but from the shape of the bottle (symmetrical ellipse) I presume the date was June 25th, 1889.
Clear 3.7" bottle embossed:
vertical: H. M. SHEILD & CO. / DRUGGISTS / RICHMOND, VA.
