Hey. I was just looking at this thread and I never posted an example of the 8 sided weiss beer that has a mold problem in the word EMPTY. These are harder to find and crude looking.
Great thread! Quite an assortment of bottles for one company. Very educational. I always enjoy learning about bottles I haven't paid much attention to in the past. I will have to start looking more closely at Graf bottle in the future.
Thanks Shotdwn. And welcome to the forum. Good luck out there collecting.
I'm not sure if I replied or not.
I just checked my Root Cokes. I have 5 1EN molds all dated from 1925 to 1928. Case closed!
Found this guy at a bottle dump yesterday... all I can determine is that Papillon Mfg. Co. became insolvent in 1888 from some Illinois Circuit Court documents.
Does anyone know any any more about...
Thanks guys. The recessed embossed panel, single-threaded screw top, and thick glass had me hoping it's closer to 1927 than 1950.
Leon The dig site is now off limits. That and most of my heavy digging days are behind me. Im kind of a scratcher NOW.
I agree. More than likely the company's first mold.
It's certainly not a particularly late example. I can't tell much about specifics but I'd be pretty surprised if it's post-1940s. Could definitely be from the late 20s, I don't know any specifics...
Those are nice, I like them, I'd go back & dig for more if you can. Nice Finds. LEON.
