Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; strong scent of vanilla in bottle, which could mean this was a bottle for food products instead of medecine, as Henri Jonas & Co. also sold alimentary products
