According to the newspaper article, with the same image engraved on the bottle's label, this was a wildly popular product. The article is actually a couple sections spliced together by me for a general view (as it went on and on) on their product, plus a partial section for another CW member to see that fire insurance did exist 'back in the day'.
Anyway, I found references to this product in only 1853 and 1854. The Physician's Sure Relief, or Universal Pain Killer. Likely just a bottle of opium. LOL.
Open pontil on bottom over snap-case seam, like last pontiled bottle I showed. This is my smallest pontiled bottle with label still attached. See modern Bic pen-cap for comparison (pic 3).
An adorable addition, with pictorial of a bedridden lady reaching out for the Sure Relief as all other products had failed her!
