McCabe Kraft & Co

Company Names, addresses, dates:
  McCabe Kraft & Co, Wheeling VA/WV

I haven't found evidence that "McCabe Kraft & Co" existed prior to West Virginia breaking off from Virginia in 1863... except for the fact that the bottle below says "WHEELING" with a space after it. I surmise that maybe the original mold for the bottle said "WHEELING VA", and that it was later modified to remove the "VA", but I have no proof of that.
(more information will be added when I get around to researching this druggist)


mccabe_02 mccabe_03 mccabe_01 This is an aqua 5.1" bottle with a "key mold" base. The base of the bottle has a diagonal line with a half-circle, which is the mark of a key mold. The bottle is embossed:
vertical on left side panel: McCABE KRAFT & CO
vertical on right side panel: WHEELING
base: (key mold mark)
