Yacorie--thanks for checking out my bottles! No I have not seen a bottle from Reeders. Bartonsville and Scotrun are the nearest towns I've seen milk bottles from. There's a pontiled soda from...
Hi. Thanks for looking and for the information about the Hineline Dairy!
These are the bottles I have...a quart, pint, and half pint. This is the only style bottle Iíve seen from the dairy and every...
Here's a cool local bottle I just got at MY OWN yard sale.
We have a yard sale every couple years and I always put out a few bottles. I always sell some of the bottles, but I'm really hoping to...
That National Dairy bottle is really cool! I never saw one of those before.
I think that first "bottle" is actually tea steeper. It would have had a lid and possibly an insert for the tea. Put in...
I agree 30's-40's most likely, but a lot of milk bottles are actually dated. Look for a two-digit year on the base (like "35" for 1935 or "42" for 1942 for example). Sometimes it's very small. If...
Thanks to everyone who checked out my collection and thanks for the replies.
Mark Wiley--That's such a cool story to hear! One of the reasons I decided to post my collection was the hope that it...
And still looking for more!!!
MONROE DAIRY EAST STROUDSBURG, PA.
Another large dairy that operated for a long time. Bottles say "Monroe Dairy," "Monroe Dairy Inc.," "Pasteurized Milk," "Quality Milk." Bottles are Thatcher and...
HAMILTON DAIRY STROUDSBURG, PA R.D.#1
The Hamilton Dairy was actually in Saylorsburg. It operated in the 1940's and there are a number of different pyroglazed designs and colors. I don't believe...
PENN-DELL DAIRY STROUDSBURG, PA.
There are a number of different embossed and pyro Penn Dell bottles. The coolest design has to be the quart with "PENN-DELL" filling the entire slug plate. On the...
C.A. CHRISTMAN CLEAR VIEW DAIRY KRESGEVILLE, R.D.1, PA.
Another tough one from a tiny town at the west end of the county.
This is an Owens bottle from 1935.
STROUDSBURG SANITARY DAIRY
There are a number of embossed and pyro varieties of SSD bottles. My favorite is the one third quart embossed "CHOCOLATE MILK" bottle that is front and center in this...
FELLENCER'S DAIRY STROUDSBURG, PA. (HILLSIDE DAIRY)
Scarcer embossed than pyro, I've seen quarts and pints but never a half pint that I can recall.
Both of these are Thatcher bottles. The embossed...
KLEINTOP'S DAIRY KUNKLETOWN, PA.
The third milk from little, tiny Kunkletown!
Both of these are Owens bottles produced in the Clarion plant, but both are so weakly embossed on the bases that I...
HINELINE BROS. EAST STROUDSBURG, PA.
Another scarce set from the 1940's. These are Thatcher bottles dated 1942.
MOUNTAIN DAIRY E.E. MOORE POCONO PINES, PA.
I randomly met Elmer Moore's nephew several years ago. I can't remember exactly how it came up in conversation, but once I realized who he was and he...
These are some other scarce dairies that I only have in quart size:
J.W. SMITH DAIRY KUNKLETOWN, PA.
This is an Owens bottle from their Clarion plant in 1936.
HARRY HAY BARTONSVILLE, PA.
These are three of the scarcer dairies from Stroudsburg. I only own them in quarts, but I have seen Hahn and Dennis pints.
MAPLE LAND DAIRY R.F. HAHN & SON BOX 242 STROUDSBURG, PA.
J.S. BLAKESLEE R.F.D. STROUDSBURG, PA.
I believe it was Jerome Blakeslee who took over the Indian Spring Dairy. He was in operation for some time. The embossed pint is dated 1934 and the pyro pint...
BREYSTONE FARM GEO. K. BRANDS STROUDSBURG, PA.
Uncommon bottles from the mid-1930's, these are Thatcher bottles dated 1935 and 1936.
I found this pint in a box of junk bottles that someone was...
MAPLE IN THE PINES WILEY & SONS
These don't have a town name, but they are from Stroudsburg. They probably seem scarcer than they actually are because people may not know where they're from. C.A....
OYER'S DAIRY STROUDSBURG, PA.
One of the later embossed milks, these are all dated 1942 and 1943. All Thatcher bottles.
The logo in the center is the owner's initials...Walter R. Oyer ("WR" inside...
C.E. KUEHNER SPRING WATER DAIRY KUNKLETOWN
This dairy sat right on the county line with Carbon County. The embossed bottles are not terribly scarce, and I have seen an embossed half pint, but the...
SWIF****ER DAIRY SWIF****ER, PA.
These bottles are pretty rare. They are the earliest dated bottles from the county that I've seen. They may not be the earliest bottles, but they are the earliest...
MONROE COUNTY CO-OP BRODHEADSVILLE, PA.
The pint, half pint, and sour cream jar with the round slug plates aren't terribly scarce, but the non-slug-plated versions are extremely common.They are from...
