Next, I'll show a few Graf hutchinsons. The Graf company bottled a lot of soda over the years. There are dozens of hutch variants. The early ones (after the venture with Madlener) were manufactured by the Wisconsin Glass Company in Milwaukee. Wis. Glass closed in 1886. These usually feature a slug plate, a six-sided mug base, and are often crude. Here's an example . . .

In the chain of Milwaukee glass manufacturers, the Cream City Glass Company came next. These bottles still feature the six-sided mug base. The reverse has THIS BOTTLE IS NEVER SOLD. Check out how crude and mis-formed the neck and shoulders are on this example!
