    Hi Harry,

    So now we know at last there are 2 complete examples of this bottle in the world! The product it held must have been pretty popular and "nationwide" for the bottle to be found in Florida and Illinois during the 1840s-1850s.

    Unless different products were bottled in the same bottle!!!
    What do you think?

    Anybody on this forum know where we might find the company whose initials are "D & G ." ??

    That's it. Thank you, Paul. D & G . . . gives me something to go on. I'll let you know if I find something.

    OK Harry, glad this may help. New listings of old bottle makers come out frequently, the last time I checked for "D & G ." was about 2-3 years ago. Yes, thanks, please let me know if you find out anything, I'll do the same!

    Zumwalt figures two D & C bottles, one probably British, the other could be American. No illustration like our bottles and no "D & G" listing in the book. She didn't identify the D & C, though it is probably a food business rather than a bottle-maker. We'll have to keep searching.
