    Beaver on bottom of bottle

    Hello, I'm new to the forum. Found this bottom part of a bottle, in a bottle dump behind my house, 1800's and early 1900's bottles. This one is neat! Although it is only the bottom. It says Trade Mark P G with a beaver in the center. Around the edge is says Winnipeg. Would anyone know anything about it? the age as well? I think early 1900's. Thank you kindly.

    Hmm that's an interesting one, probably a soda bottle. I don't know who PG would be, definitely not Drewry's or Blackwood's which are the two main Winnipeg bottlers I'm aware of. Looks like an older one too, definitely suggests you're in a good spot!

    Maybe Canadacan will know. Canadian sodas are extremely well documented, so the answer shouldn't be hard to find.

    I know there was a Hutch bottle from Toronto with a Beaver pictured on it. LEON.

    Thank you, still a mystery. Very Canadian for sure with the beaver on it, eh?

    Hi there,

    I talked to a couple of guys here in Winnipeg who are excellent resources for embossed MB bottles and they both say that this particular bottle with a Beaver on the base was made by Pelissier from Manitoba. If I can get a picture of a bottle I'll post it as well.
