    Hello - Alabama milk bottle wanted

    The local antique malls may possibly have one. A dealer of local bottles in the mall, also, may be able to obtain one. Lastly the farm inself should have a dump with the dairy bottles, discarded after their useful life. A thorough search around the grounds, and then probing the area found...

    Some were embossed. This dairy , also had a clear pyroglazed. The colored ones , were made before 1915+ or minus a couple years. Wish I knew how many in the state survived, and Where they are!

    Love that! There is possibly one more, ROSS DAIRY, local dairy, slug plate bottle from Bolivar Tenn. , a town about 80 miles from Memphis. I dug a trash pit there, years ago, found a green and an amber shard , with a few clear slug plate pieces too. It was the town dump, under 3-4 feet of dirt...

    Amber or Brown Quart slug plate Memphis Dairy Tenn Pure Milk Union St.

    In the 1980's near Crump Blvd , I dug a large pile of this brown milk bottle, ALL broke, and in shards, likely the byproduct, of the failed experiment, with amber milk bottles , in the extremely hot and humid south!

So the dairies/bottlers had their delivery personnel place the bottles in the shade...

The back is embossed : TO BE WASHED AND RETURNED, so the owner/user was...
