Thankyou Surface one for your links - I couldn't red them or even copy them on this old NY computer. Send me an email with them please.
I have an old Heinz jar that has a square tooled lip of about 1-1/2 " x 1/4" on a 1-1/2"neck. The bottle is about 8" high and has some partial labeling on it.
The bottom is embossed with "/ HEINZ \" curved over "/ BROS & CO. \" over "/ NO 52 \" which is also curved.
The label shows ONION over HEINZ BROS & CO. over a center trademark and then the address OFFICE 145 FIRST AVE. over PITTSBURG PA.
That about covers it. I look forward to hour comments. < firstname.lastname@example.org>
I think this may be a very interesting bottle. I'd love to see some photos if you have the opportunity. Does the trade mark include a Maltese Cross?
I've dug dozens of H.J. Heinz bottles, even an F&J Heinz, but I've never dug a Heinz Bros. anything.
