Bottle for info

Post by Trickieshep » Tue Aug 07, 2018 9:31 pm

While i was detecting over the weekend I found what i think is a square milk bottle.

It has quite a few bubbles in the glass and on base is a triangular mark that says C&S 20 P

Can anyone give me any ideas as to whether it is a milk bottle and roughly how old it might be.

Thanks

Ah, That's a tricky one 'Trickieshep' but perhaps a photo of your tricky item would do the trick.
If you have a photo or can produce one, that would be your best bet for obtaining a reply from one of the forum's knowledgeable 'Bottle wallahs'. Below, I've added a helpful link to uploading photo's should it be needed ::gGuide-Uploading Photo's to the ForumGood Luck - Regards ss47

There are, and were, square milk bottles. There’s a set of six for sale on a site near you but they are in USA.
I’ve never seen one, that I can remember. Have a look in the bottle digging section for contacts , I’m sure kenleyboy will help ::g

Hi trickie,
I’ve never seen a square milk bottle-but there could well be one
Round these parts there is a local dairy that used a very desirable to collectors
pinch bodied milk bottle.
Dairies more often than not embossed and then later transfer printed their bottles,
Pickle and the likes had quite often a lovely paper label .
The triangular mark on the base sounds like the glassworks mark.
With the air bubbles as you describe-I think it sounds like a chutney/pickle bottle.

The base mark could be for cannington shaw

Here’s a good link -I think it’s an American site
(We sent a lot of pickles out there -British pickle bottles
Turn up in ghost town dumps...
Anyways
Scroll a wee bit down and there’s a row of bottles
With two USA brand labelled square pickle type bottles.
Same but different.
I’m probably way out :D
