It is interesting that they would continue to use a "ROUND BOTTOM" torpedo for a crown top. I guess they didn't trust that cork in the cap think it would dry out. Could have been easier to continue using this shape in lieu of change.
That is a jug for vinegar. Originally it would have had a paper label indicating the contents. It is a machine made bottle and fairly modern. 1950's ish. It is interesting, but has little, if any monetary value. It does look like a MOONSHINER jug. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
Continuing the theme... more slug plate molds.
Today sharing some of my favorite style beer bottles, the squat style weiss beers (biers). Note that the fronts used the slug plate mold, while the back sides did not. In general these bottlers bottled beer brewed by other companies. The...
