Added a torpedo bottle to my collection today. The only markings on it "K B"
are at the bottom. Can anyone share some background on this bottle?
Hi, Your bottle was manufactured by Kilner Brothers (KB) in the UK.
If you google Kilner Brothers you should come up with many references and images.
Thank you !!
There was a K-B soda bottling Co. too. It doesn't say what type of soda. The only thing on it is K-B at the top.
Property of K-B bottling OC. Phenix City Ala. on the bottom around the sides. I don't know if OC was a mistake & it should be CO.
an update , noticed the auction place was having another auction , no bottles in this lot but is a few milk tokens , several mixed lots of various Ontario milk caps , is some other Burks Falls Dairy...
That's the street it's on.
Nice finds. Here's hoping for more. Why do you call it the Dickinson site?
Yeah the soil around here gives these bottles a nice 'sickness' to them.
I love the color that glass with iridescent
Vulcanizing Fluid, I believe.
You might try soaking it in acetone to see if that will help dissolve or break down the resin.
