Perhaps it may say something like Valentine Blatz Brewing Company or Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company.
This was required to be placed on all American Whiskey bottles after the end of prohibition.The requirement lasted until 1964 after which whiskey bottle no longer carried the inscription.Based in Klamath Falls, Oregon, Lindsey can be reached through his website, Historic Glass Bottle Identification, which is a member of our Hall of Fame.My maternal grandfather and uncle got into bottles in about 1965 or ‘66 when I was in high school, and we started digging.From New York to California, there were thousands of liquor dealers and distilleries before Prohibition.
We wish to purchase examples from nearly any of these firms.DO YOU HAVE A BOTTLE WITH THIS OR SIMILAR EMBOSSING????If your bottle has these words embossed it was made between 1932 - 1964 These words were required on liquor bottles after prohibition was lifted.Anyway, we started by digging some of the mining camps in Oregon and Arizona and then eventually gravitated towards digging in downtown Portland, the urban renewal stuff in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. And so we got in there and started finding really nice stuff. I never looked back, and have been collecting ever since.That was way better digging because that’s where people lived. : I have over a thousand bottles, which means something or nothing.I am offering these books as a adjunct to my work on the Historic Glass Bottle Identification & Information Website.
