Cardboard box containing one dozen (12) dose packets from the Dr. Claris Veterinary Hospital in Buffalo, New York. 4”x 3”x 1 ¾”. Paper label on the top of the box has some edge wear. Boxes dated to c1910 and was originally priced at 19 cents according to the grease pencil numbers on the label. Only the third example to ever be recorded. Terry McMurray sold an example in 2004 for $425. There are lots of Claris collectors out there looking to fill their Claris’ cabinet but not sure we can reach that 2004 number. Bid as you see fit.
Unopened, lithographed quart tin with contents from the Dr. Claris Veterinary Hospital in Buffalo, New York. 6 ½”x 3 ½”x 3”. “THE BEST REMEDY KNOWN FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE GROWTH OF HORSES FEET.” No illustrations on the tin. Possibly a unique survivor as I have never seen, heard of, or recorded a single example of the Claris medicine. If you like Dr. Claris medicines and who doesn’t, this auction will have some examples you may never see at auction again. Sold to the high bidder with no reserve.
Embossed bottle with paper labels on the front and back. Embossed: JOHN T. CLARIS, V. S. / 625, 627, 629 CLINTON ST. BUFFALO, N. Y. // DR. CLARIS / VETERINARY HOSPITAL. 7 ½”x 2 ½”x 2”.

I have recorded twenty-two (22) Kronkine bottles selling over the years but this is THE FIRST AND ONLY KRONKINE POWDERS I HAVE EVER SEEN. Unopened cardboard box with wrap around paper label on all sides and containing the original contents from the Dr. Claris Veterinary Hospital in Buffalo, New York. The contents have hardened over time and the red printing has unfortunately faded. 6”x 3 ½”x 2 ½”. The Claris ambulance is illustrated on the front and his hospital is on the reverse. Not the sexiest Claris medicine ever offered but I bet it is unique as I have never seen another in 40 years of hunting.
Unopened bottle with paper label, contents, folded paper insert and box from the Dr. George Clayton Company of Chicago. Used for impure conditions of the blood. 3”x 1 ¼”x 1 ¼”. A cat is illustrated on the front of the box. Bottle and label are near mint, bright and clean. The box has all the top flaps, but they are detached. This is a scarce Cat & Kitten medicine.
Unopened bottle with original contents, paper label, folded paper insert and box from Dr. G. W. Clayton of Chicago. 2 ½”x ¾”x ¾”. Scarce CAT ONLY medicine to treat seizures in cats and kittens. Bottle is in excellent condition. Box is complete but has a small archival tape repair to top left side.

Bottle with paper label and box from the S. A. Crisp Canine Company of Blacksburg, South Carolina. 8 ½”x 3”x 1 ½”. Label is excellent with very light foxing. Box is missing all the top flaps but displays great. A large, impressive dog medicine. Black Tongue Remedies are extremely rare as I believe only Glover’s also produced one for dogs. This is it first example from this company to be recorded at auction. This is from a tiny town on the border with North Carolina. I have personally driven through this town and attempted to find anyone or anything related to this company. No luck at all. No trace or any information could be found. A rare canine medicine from a rare canine medicine company.

Excellent condition with no damage, just the minor handling wear of age. You will not be disappointed. Another scarce Daniels’ remedy worth your consideration.
Late variation of this medicine originally named Cough Cold & Fever Drops (CC&F). Probably produced right as cork bottles were being phased out and the company was using up their supply of cork bottles.

Original price sticker is $1.30. Excellent condition.

This is currently the only example to be recorded, this selling in our auction in 2001 for $160. Since that time, no other example has come to auction. This Dr. Daniels’ example sold at a time when there were several collectors chasing Dog Soaps quite aggressively. The market has calmed down somewhat, but this is still a very desirable soap box and Dr. Daniels’ collectible.

Early, lithographed tin with contents. This one sold for 50 cents and does have the Drug Act disclaimer of 1906 on the lid. 3”x 2 ½”. This contained TINCTURE OF OPIUM 5 gr. per ounce. You mixed up the powder to make your own liniment in any strength you desired. Very minor wear along the edge of the lid. Very good overall. This early variation is scarce.
Unopened bottle with paper label, contents, and box. 6”x 2 ½”x 1 ¾”. “An internal lubricant for Hair Accumulation in Cats and Kittens—particularly recommended for Persians and Angoras.” I’ll assume the H. & B. in the name stand for Hair Ball. Not sure what the “O” stands for. The box has significant stain and is slightly mushed on the right side. This is the second example of this Dr. Daniels’ Cat and kitten remedy that I have ever recorded in my price guide. Very scarce.

Could probably use a little cleaning.
