These are two extract bottles from the Toiletine Company, in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The wintergreen extract label claims that the extract "is a reliable recognized remedy for the treatment of rheumatism and for heart & kidney troubles." First established in Hoosick Falls, New York, the company manufactured a medicated lotion named "Toiletine," and moved to Montague in 1895, where it began manufacturing a line of products including shampoos, lotions, and flavoring extracts vanilla, lemon, wintergreen, and cinnamon. In 1910, the company was purchased by William Ulrich who moved it to Greenfield, Massachusetts. The company disappeared in the early 1970's, probably due to the owner's failure to advertise in an attempt to keep the company small.
