This was purchased at a tag sale yesterday, held at a local church. It was the first tag sale I have stopped at this year! My weekends have been that busy!
There were folks selling very nice clothing (used) at reasonable prices, children's toys, some furniture, and one gentleman who was setting up a booth of old bottles. (Read that as "Bright, shiny objects" ;) The booth was entirely old bottles, mostly small, medicinal bottles. He had a few old milk bottles from the home-delivery era. But this cereal milk bottle was placed in a spot that caught my eye and wouldn't let go. It almost jumped into my hand, try as I did to walk away from it. The vendor did not know where this one originated but it was in a cellar that was cleaned out, as were many of the other bottles on display. At the small price of $2, I caved.
So my question is......is this real? Or is this a recent creation, made to look like a vintage item? It is about 5 inches tall. (The imperfect glass and the dirt are a great touch....) I couldn't find it on a quick internet search. Have you seen these before? I'd appreciate any information.
And if it is fake (a modern decorative item), my $2 bottle will be a good "penny jar" :)
