History of Milk Bottles

A Short History of Milk Bottles.

No one seems to know when the first Milk Bottle came into use The New York Dairy Company is credited with using the first factory produced milk bottles. The first patent for a Milk Container is the Lester Milk Jar, Jan 29, 1878. There are only five known examples of this jar in existence today. Other similar milk containers from this period are the Mackworh Pure Jersey Cream crockery type jar, the Manorfield Stock Farm, Manor, PA glass wide mouth jar, and the Tuthill's Dairy Unionville, NY.
