    RE: John Graf

    Next, I'll show a few Graf hutchinsons. The Graf company bottled a lot of soda over the years. There are dozens of hutch variants. The early ones (after the venture with Madlener) were manufactured by the Wisconsin Glass Company in Milwaukee. Wis. Glass closed in 1886. These usually feature a slug plate, a six-sided mug base, and are often crude. Here's an example . . .

    In the chain of Milwaukee glass manufacturers, the Cream City Glass Company came next. These bottles still feature the six-sided mug base. The reverse has THIS BOTTLE IS NEVER SOLD. Check out how crude and mis-formed the neck and shoulders are on this example!

    RE: John Graf

    I need to show this bottle as well. This is the most common Graf hutchinson style. It features an eight sided mug base with the famous trade mark on the back. THE BEST WHAT GIVES.

    Every now and then, if you're lucky, you may find some of these with a mis-mold error. Where it should say TRADE MARK, they say TBADE MARK. These are quite rare (but neat).

    RE: John Graf

    Here are some more Graf weiss beers. These feature hex bases. They come in a huge array of shades including the normal ambers, some that are very dark (reddish amber held to a bright light), and ones that are yellowish.

    A similar shape but an odd colored (beer) with a loop seal closure. This one is quite rare.

    Roaring twenties style art deco bottles. These featured panels in the center that alternate between smooth and pebbled textures.

    Hutches also came in oversized versions. Here's the eight sided mug base.
