Schlesinger & Bender Inc. in San Francisco? : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I am trying to date a bottle I have. It is a rock and rye bottle made by Schlesinger and Bender, Inc. They were located in San Francisco and I know they were established in 1879 according to their label. Are they still in business and if not, when did they go out of business? Patsy

Here's a place to start looking. It's a collectibles chat page I got off Yahoo.

I tried googling with "schlesinger & bender" + "rock and rye" and got nothing. Rock and rye on its own gets a lot of input on candy and novelty beverages. So start hunting in forums that discuss collecting medicine bottles.
