Jumping to December 29th and December 30th, 1933 ...
Earliest reference I am aware of about the Thatcher Manufacturing Company introducing "Pyroglazed" milk bottles. Even though it gives the impression they were already producing fused label bottles in 1933, the earliest examples I have seen are date marked 1934.
A 1933 Thatcher mark with date code will look something like this ...
3E3 (inside a circle) (The E stands for Elmira, New York)
If anyone who reads this has and/or finds one, probably on a milk bottle, please let us know, accompanied by some good pictures.

December 30, 1933

Thanks HouTxSoda -- Mucho appreciated
Speaking of the Thatcher Manufacturing Company, I wish I owned this circa 1940s Pyroglaze catalog, but I don't.
Benday = Different types of texturing such as the "orange peel texturing" used on certain bottles
Stippling = Different types of texturing used on the base of certain bottles
