- Shipping: All DOMESTIC shipping charges INCLUDE insurance. We have enjoyed shipping our items all over the world and are happy to offer most of our items to international buyers. Yet insuring International parcels is very expensive so PLEASE NOTE; we do NOT insure International orders unless winning buyer specifically requests this and we are able to provide an insurance quote. We do not falsify information on the Customs Form, such as a price other than what the actual purchase price is, so please do not request us to do so. We ship several times a week and send payment acknowledgments and shipping confirmations. Your prompt payment will assure a very quick turn-around time. IMPORTANT NOTE: If our shipping charge is much more than the actual shipping cost, we will refund the excess so what YOU pay for shipping/insurance is very close to, if not exactly, the ACTUAL shipping costs! This is especially important for foreign buyers to know as most of our foreign shipping charges are rough estimates.
The Owl Drug Co. was originally a western concern, opening their very first store in San Francisco, Cal., ca. 1892. They had quite a large selection of medicinal related products that came in an incredibly large assortment of different sized, shaped, and colored vessels, making them a prime target for bottle collector's today. Besides their regular line of bottled prepared products, they also operated a prescription drug department that filled prescriptions using a fairly standard clear glass rectangular shaped bottles. Possibly these little dose glasses were given out when a prescription was filled. There are also Owl Drug Co. dose glasses that just have the words, "The Owl Drug Co.", etched on them, not embossed. The etched ones do NOT have a picture of an owl on them. These embossed ones with the picture of the owl on them are the great ones, and we cannot stress enough how detailed and boldly embossed the little owl is, check it out!
