TREQ Milk Bottle Embossed Chas E Wood Narcissa Dairies Narcissa PA
Here is an old tall round embossed quart milk bottle from the 1920s. The names "Chas. E. Wood" and "Narcissa Dairy" are embossed on the front and back. "Chas. E. Wood Narcissa Dairy Narcissa, PA" is embossed on the base in a circle around the letter "W" and ejection scar in the center. Embossed on the heel of the clear glass milk bottle is a large "T" with smaller "m" and "c" underneath (see photo). This mark was used from 1923 into the early 1950s by the Thatcher Mfg. Co. The "W" on the base at the ejection mark stood for "Wood" as these large initials represented the dairies that used the milk bottle and not related to manufacturer's marks or plant codes. Also found on the heel are the words "one quart liquid" and "registered". After 1934, Narcissa Dairies would become Missimer-Wood Narcissa Dairies and an "M" and a "W" would be found on the base. There is no date code on the bottom that I can see.
According to Charles E. Wood's obituary in the Conshohocken Register on December 28, 1934 - Charles E. Wood was born in Philadelphia in 1884. In 1907, he moved to Narcissa to help manage the Narcissa Dairy for the owner, William T. Hendren. Charles married his daughter, Sarah Hendren and purchased the business, Narcissa Dairy, located at 362 Delmar in Roxborough PA, in 1921. He died on Christmas Day 1934.
This embossed milk bottle is 9 1/2 inches tall and in very nice condition - no cracks, dings, or chips. This would make a great addition to any Philadelphia dairy milk bottle collection.
