There was'nt really anything for my collection at the flea market except a couple Ms druggists that were a little over priced.I've got a table reserved at the Vicksburg bottle show so I started looking for anything I thought I could make a small profit on.Got this one for $6.

Why would they have put ice cream on a milk bottle?Just advertising their other products?

Exactly Carobran. Trying to sell more to a captive audience. Hopefully, someone enjoying your product with nothing else around to read.

Says MIDWEST on the base and a 36 beneath that,would 36 be the date?

From what I see quickly it was organized in 1926 and was all the way from Illinois to Louisiana. so anywhere along the river and beyond could be a guess. I may have even floated there.[:D]
The 36, yes probably the date.

Oops, sorry, 36 and a pyro is not so likely. Possible but...
It looks more 50's ish to me. I think I see some heel embossing. What's that if anything?

I was thinking that was a little early for pyro.The heel embossing is SEALED 52 L-G

I don't know much, but I would think the 52 is the date.

After seacrhing ebay it seem that there are several versions of this bottle with different things on the back,none with ice cream on ebay though,maybe its a little harder to find.

If you go HERE (http://dairyantiques.com/Milk_Bottle_Makers.html) and down to Lamb then Liberty it looks as though 52 was a common thing. I'm not sure why but it may not be the year. Definitely closer than '36 though.[:D]
