I just added these bottles to my collection from bottle shows and eBay. They are all from Branford Farms Groton, Conn. On the left is a half pint milk, in the center is a 2 oz creamer, and the one on the right is a Koumyss? Does anyone know what this is? Over all I love this grouping of dairy bottles.
That one on the right is extremely unusual. It appears in every way except the embossing to be a citrate of magnesia bottle. These would often have the names of local druggists embossed on them but I've never heard of one with a dairy farm's embossing. I had to look up koumyss and apparently it's "The fermented milk of a mare or camel, used as a beverage by certain peoples of Western and Central Asia." I imagine that's a pretty unusual find in the States!
