View Full Version : Eagle Creamery Co?

07-22-2012, 12:07 PM
I have tried to find info on this bottle and only heard of it being referenced here:

Embossed "Eagle Creamery Co Phone Richmond 703"
Can't figure out if it is local Richmond CA or Richmond VA
I guess it is a "paneled" design and seems to be unusual.
I found it at a garage sale, and it was full of cool vintage marbles!

Any ideas? Value?

Hey likemesome,

Welcome back. You may wanna do some reading up On Re-Sizing. (https://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/Re%2Dsizing-a-photo/m-384935/tm.htm)

There was also this: "Bottle ID#: 076
This is one of the best-embossed eagle bottles from California. The eagle has spread wings and a dropped tail. The bottle is ribbed all the way around and the front is embossed "One Quart, Eagle Creamery Co., and Phone Richmond 703." The eagle is embossed inside the lettering. The base of the bottle reads "E-4,2." Essex Glass Company, Mt. Vernon, Ohio manufactured the bottle in the 1910s." From. (http://drinc.ucdavis.edu/milkbottle/text/076.htm)


"Rather than being smooth glass, the milk bottles pictured above are a ribbed or paneled design. These bottles are not as common as the smooth glass milk bottles. Early Borden's milk bottles were like this. These bottles are usually composed of 22 or 24 flat panels that form the bottle. These bottles are only found embossed since pyroglazing requires a smooth surface. The second and third bottles are the only two California bottles with an embossed eagle and interestingly both are panel designs.

Milk bottles left to right:
Suburban Dairy, L. McGugin & Sons, quart, Fresno, California, Illinois Pacific Glass Company, 1922
Eagle Creamery Co., quart, Richmond, California, Essex Glass Company, pre-1920
Eagle Dairy, A. Borba, pint, Woodland, California, maker and date unknown
Paradise Dairy Co., half pint, Los Banos, California, Pacific Coast Glass Company, 1931" From. (http://dairyantiques.com/Unusual_Shaped_Milk_Bottles.html)

Thanks, yeah I spaced on the CA thing, after reading many different pages. And I did resize my pic to under 200k and about 6"x8", but I guess they were still large.

Any idea of the value?

I don't think it resized. [8D]

Sorry, no clue as to value.
