M. Allgeier Sons Brookville, PA Beer Bottle
Today I happened to get very lucky and I found this M. Allgeier Sons Brookville, PA Beer Bottle at a thrift store for just $2.00. As soon as I saw the bubbles and seams on it I knew I had something really good. Made by Dominick O. Cunningham Glass company and has the number 1055 on the heel. There are no ounces on the bottle which means it was made before the Gould Amendment to the Food and Drug Act went into effect on September 3, 1914. It has an Owens scar on the bottom and is machine-made with a tooled top. The seams fade out before reaching the crown. Owens Automatic Bottle Machines did not make bottles in large amounts until 1905 so I'm going with a date range of 1905-1914 on this bottle. Magnus Allgeier was a native of Baden, Germany born in 1842. He went into business in 1870 with the Spring Brewery in Brookville, PA. He passed away in 1913 as a well known and highly regarded citizen of Brookfield. I believe that this bottle is rather rare and I haven't been able to find another one like it online. If anyone has any info to add, please feel free. Here is a link to an article which has more information regarding Mangus Allgeier and his Spring Brewery.
