Description

The Chas. H. Phillips Chemical Co. New York , Clear Cork Top Blown Glass Medicine bottles. I estimate these to be from late 1800s early 1900s based on it's history. They measure: the rectangular one is 2.23 inches by 1.78ths, it is 7.25 inches tall. The square older bottle is 2.58ths by 2.58ths it is approximately 8 inches tall. The rectangular bottle is approximately 12 ounces in weight, and the other one is approximately 14 ounces.

HISTORY:
Phillips' Milk of Magnesia began embossing its trademark on its bottles beginning in 1906 when it was patented. Bottles manufactured before this year are often seen with differing Phillips logos. For example, in an earlier rendition of the Phillips' Milk of Magnesia bottle, the logo appears as "C.H. PHILLIPS / NEW YORK" surrounding the double circled monogram in the center, followed by the text "PATENTED / APRIL 29th & JULY 22nd / 1873" below the logo. Also, it should be noted that some of the earliest Milk of Magnesia bottles had no embossments at all and made do with paper labels only

Chas. H. Phillips invented the original Phillips’ formula in 1873, manufacturing it through the Chas. H. Phillips Chemical Company. This organization dates back to 1819, when Charles H. Phillips entered the pharmaceutical manufacturing business.

To operate his company, Phillips acquired a tract of land in Glenbrook, Connecticut, in 1849, where Phillips’Milk of Magnesia was manufactured until 1976. Chas. H. Phillips ran the company until his death in 1882. The company was incorporated in 1885 as the Chas. H. Phillips Chemical Company and was
then operated by his four sons, A. N. Phillips, C. E. H. Phillips,W. D. Phillips, and J. B. Phillips. In 1923, Sterling Products acquired the Chas. H. Phillips Chemical Company. Sterling created three Phillips’ products: Phillips’ Milk of Magnesia Toothpaste (1924), Phillips’ Dental Magnesia & Tooth Powder (1925), and Phillips’ Milk of Magnesia Tablets (1931). An important early figure in Phillips’ history is Forde Morgan, MD. Morgan became associated with the Chas. H. Phillips Chemical Company in 1897 in the capacity of detail man — interviewing doctors, dentists, hospitals, and druggists and promoting the company’s products, particularly Milk of Magnesia. He demonstrated products at medical and dental conventions and prepared and revised labels and literature. When Sterling acquired the company, Dr. Morgan was selected as medical director and manager of detail men. He held this position until his death in 1938. Bayer HealthCare, one of the largest marketers of over-the-counter medications, acquired the North American operations of Sterling Products in 1995, primarily to reclaim the U.S. trademark rights to its name (“Bayer”) and flagship aspirin product, which the American government auctioned off to Sterling during the First World War. Since then, the Phillips’ franchise has become an important part of Bayer’s personal nature of the service that the product offers. While “Raymond and Maureen” was a successful approach to marketing the Phillips’ line, the brand departed from those characters following the untimely death of Gail Neely (“Maureen”). Instead, the brand introduced its similarly lighthearted “Librarian” commercial, which continues to drive success for Phillips’ Caplets and the franchise. With its latest product introduction, Phillips’ Colon Health, advertising has evolved into a more direct, tongue-in-cheek approach when discussing colon health and the symptoms associated with it. It’s about having an open discussion with a friend about an important issue that should not be considered taboo.

In 2006, the Phillips’ brand name celebrated its 100-year anniversary of trademark registration.

The bottles are in great condition and have the original lids.
