"Solitop" is stated as Registered U.S. Patent Office. The word is likely to be a contraction of "solid top."

Top end of box is the only place where Hoboken is found: "Guaranteed and Manufactured by S. Fisher & Co., Inc., Hoboken, N.J., U.S.A."

Company founded in 1895. Principals included Sol Fisher, Asher C. Fisher, Louis A. Fisher, Zachara Shapiro. Produced wholesale products under brand "S.F.& C." Located at Clinton, 11th and Grand Streets; street address from a 1926 directory: 1039 Clinton St.

While undated, the typography for "Solitop" and the border frame are in an Art Nouveau style and suggests that the box was issued nearer 1900 than later.
