    H.J. Heinz Bottle

    Here's a ketchup? H.J. Heinz bottle. It's about little over 7 inches tall.

    On the bottom, it says H.J. Heinz Co. 186 Pat.

    Could someone please give me some background history about this bottle? How much it could be worth? Thank you!

    Cody,

    That is not a ketchup bottle. The form is called a "Club Sauce"

    "#186-woozy sauce-1913-1945" From.

    Henry J. introduced his "Worcester sauce" in late 1876 to avoid a lawsuit from Lea & Perrins for infringing on their trademark name. More Here.

    I don't believe it has very much worth in the dollars & cents department.

    RE: H.J. Heinz Bottle

    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. <bottlemysteries@yahoo.com>

    RE: H.J. Heinz Bottle

    i recently found a similar bottle in that 40's dump i've been digging up , it said heinz on bottom and i was pretty sure it wasn't for ketchup and for some sort of sauce . think there pretty common as i'd imagine alot of worchester sauce was sold although not as common as ketchup bottles . i seem to dig up a couple of those each dump .

    Hello RED,

    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.

    I found this old thread: http://www.antique-bottles.net/forum...-/tm.htm#94604
