Some glass containers make quite obvious which glass company made the item. This bottle was certainly made by the Cream City Glass Company (Milwaukee, WI.) which operated from 1888 to 1893, possibly at plant #1 as it is believed they had two separate plants at the same location and the number "2" has been observed on at least one other bottle with the same makers marking (Lockhart et al. This is typical of the type of makers marks found on the bases of mouth-blown beer bottles produced from the 1870s through the 1910s until National Prohibition and is an example of how useful makers marks can be for the accurate dating of historic bottles.For example, the quart canning jar pictured to the right is boldly embossed on one side with PACIFIC / SAN FRANCISCO / GLASS WORK (sic) making it easily clear that the jar was manufactured by the Pacific Glass Works of San Francisco, CA. (Photo courtesy of Bill Lockhart.)The following is quoted from the introduction to the book Bottle Makers and Their Marks by Dr.General Machine-made Diagnostic Features: Machine-made bottles will exhibit most or all of the diagnostic characteristics explained and illustrated below.(This summary is largely an amalgam of Toulouse 1969b; Miller & Sullivan 1981; Jones & Sullivan 1989; Boow 1991; Cable 1999; Miller & Mc Nichol 2002; Miller & Morin 2004; empirical observations.) It should be noted that features #1, #3, #4, #5, and #6 are primary indicators of machine-made manufacture.Dating abuse is a pattern of abusive behaviors -- usually a series of abusive behaviors over a course of time -- used to exert power and control over a dating partner.Every relationship is different, but the things that unhealthy and abusive relationships have in common are issues of power and control.Feature #2 (mold seam diameter) is not as strongly diagnostic as the primary indicators as mouth-blown bottles sometimes can have very fine mold seams.
The offset is a function of the orientation of the parison relative to the two molds (parison and blow molds) used on the particular machine, or occasionally, to the hot parison "sticking" to the neck ring of the parison/blank mold when transferring to the blow mold (Ceramic Industry 19-15).He heard their concerns and felt the intensity of their desire.He agreed to “see what could be done.” Sister Groberg recalled that after some time of anxious waiting, it was finally announced that they were to meet with the institute director. “We were told that the seminary would be coming to our area that next year.In some instances, lucky for the collector but unlucky for the user of the mark, the period may be reduced to one or two years.One factory making beer bottles in the 1880s, whose ownership, name, and mark changed five times in eleven years, has helped historical archaeologists date a number of sites in the western United States.
