I've got this neat early pint milk embossed Cloverdale Farm/C.H. Shannon...can't figure out where it is from. Dug it in New Hampshire when I was a kid...I found some stuff on a farm run by Charles H. Shannon in Franklin, New Hampshire, but can't figure if this is from there. Any ideas?

I knew the name was familiar, I have no clue as to where it's from though, hopefully these are the only 2 known examples and a family member sees them and offers us each millions...[;)]

Jim,

That's crazy you have one too! Millions would sure be nice. I've looked everywhere and there are a ton of Cloverdale Farms but I can't find one with this proprietor. For now it is going back on the mystery shelf in my closet.

I'm going to resurrect this thread...still looking for any information on this milk bottle. Anyone have any idea where it is from?

I know it must be from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, or Vermont due to the "Mass. Seal T" embossing. Looks like just in New Hampshire around 1910 there were Cloverdale Farms in Contoocook, Farmington, and Webster.

For what it's worth, Tutton lists a Cloverdale Dairy Co. 7800 Detroit Ave. in Cleveland Ohio.

Sadly it seems like there were hundreds of dairies named this. The key is going to be to connect Shannon to one of them. I know it is a northeastern bottle because of the Mass. (Massachusetts) seal on it, which I think NH, ME, and VT also used.
