Matuella's was a large dairy in Hazleton, Pa and was a large competitor of Pecora's. As you may know Pecora was the inventor of the babytop bottle. Matuella used the design and instead of a baby face they invented the cop face or cop top which led to a large legal rangel over the design. Both dairies are no longer in business. Both had embossed and pyro versions of the bottles in 1/2, pint and qt sizes Dan
