Found this one diving yesterday and it cleaned up nicely, so I am inclined to think it is not too old.
The Front says "Milk of Magnesia" with a trademark symbol in the middle. On the lower half of the front it says "The Chas H. Phillips Chemical Co." and on the very bottom of the front it says "Glennbrook Conn."
The bottom of the bottle says "Made in the USA."
Is this from the 50s, or more modern? I love the blue color.
Baltimore to Oakland/San Francisco, now Baltimore again!
RE: Blue Milk of Magnesia bottle
Since nobody has replied to you yet, I will confirm that those were produced for a long time and yours appears to be 1950's to 1960's but you can look on the bottom of the bottle and look for two digits on the right side that can usually indicate that year it was produced......................example digits 62 can indicate 1962.
And yes everybody likes the color blue in glass bottles!
Thanks Doug. I checked out the bottom of the bottle and in the center of the bottom it said "Made in U.S.A." On one side of the bottom it had the number "7" and on the other it looks like the letter "V".
They do not bring much , but make a nice display item . I remember selling just plain cobalt screw top bottles back in the sevenities for three and four dollars each . Don't think they will bring that any more .
I put a box of them out in my auction last October . There was about twenty five of them from small to large . I think the while box brought three or four dollars . I did not have any corkers in the box though .
A GREAT DEAL L. C. FOR BEGINNER,COBLT COLLECTOR OR SOMEBODY THAT JUST LIKES THEM! DIGGERS USED TO LEAVE THEM AND BROMO SELZERS AT THE DUMP IN THE 70S,BUT NO MORE ,WHICH SHOWS THEY HAVE COME UP IN THE WORLD. NOW THEY LEAVE "SLICKS". I USED TO GO AND GATHER THEM UP IN A 5 GALLON BUCKET AND SELL THE BUCKET OF BOTTLES FOR $5. THEY MIGHT HAVE JUST WANTED THE BUCKET THOUGH AND THE BOTTLES WERE JUST A BONUS![:)]
This final bottle I found is probably the least oldest (I am guessing late 1800s) because it is not as dark, the pontil is not as deep, and it is a different shape. By the way, all are free blown as...
Thanks for the response. Here is another that I found on the same trip and this is more true "black glass" with and applied top, but I think its not as old as the first one... because the area where...
