We bought this small group of vintage milk bottles last week.
They’re half pints and date from the 1920s/30s kind of era – they’re very sweet!
The bottle markings are interesting – each from a different local dairy.
These are all from Greater Manchester. The area would have had large numbers of dairies at one time – supplying households, local shops, businesses & schools. They’d be situated in the various districts & suburbs. This group of ten contains bottles from Salford, Stretford, Sale and Moss Side. The bottles have relatively wide necks and make lovely little vases for a spray of flowers.
They’re available from our shop singly at £6 each; perhaps you’ve got a small restaurant or café with about ten tables – they’d be just perfect for that – or a vintage-inspired wedding reception perhaps?
