    Maker mark

    Check out Knox glass article from SHA. PA company that used a K in a keystone and as they grew snd bought other plants in PA and other states, put diff letters inside the keystone. T in a keystone is likely from Palestine TX plant. Looks like 1953 bottle. Interesting history of the firm...

    More Little Bottles

    I like these little bottles. Not super old or worth too much is my guess, but they cleaned up nice and will be fun to research. A lot like the ones I dig.

    Okay. Read this paragraph and link. Talks about “sealed” codes which states adopted and later a National type system to ensure bottlers were putting in the full amounts of milk. E4 is for Essex Glass. It’s a common heel code. That’s about all I got. The sealed numbers get crazy, esp when in the...

    Based on my limited knowledge and reading some articles, esp the SHA.org here’s a couple thoughts. The large B is almost def what they call a sorting code. It allowed the dairy’s to sort out quickly returned bottles into the right location during cleaning. The B= Borden. On the E, and the...
