I know this bottle is a repro but, I can not find an exact match of the description of the maker of this reproduction. I would like to know if anyone can point me in the right direction for this information. Thanks for the help.

Hello bottlepoor; No wonder I couldn't use that name. I have enough bottles that my daughter thinks I am bottle-poor! Look carefully for the C B under the front door. I would look at it as a deeper. RED Matthews

I changed the zoom level on my screen fom 100 to 400%. It looks to me as if there may be some initials under the front door or between the front door and right window.I can`t make out what or if the letters might be, but it does look like there may be some.[8|]

I would guess it is an asian repro or one of the "decorator" american one, its a poor quality repro due to color, lip, etc.

Hey everybody, thanks for the replies, sorry you couldn`t use that name Red but, I am bottlepoor just ask my wife !!! Anyway I re-examined this bottle and even used a jewelers loop for magnification and found no initials of any type ! All the information is appreciated.

Being as it has the St with 2 dots below the t, I'm thinking Clevenger Bros...between 1943 & 1955...1955 is when they began adding the CB....1943 or so is when they went from applied collar to a tooled lip...

It's probably just from handling it for the pictures, but it almost looks like a fingerprint on the neck area...(Impressed into the glass)....[;)]
