This Vintage Valley View Dairy Red Pyro Quart Milk Bottle with Baby is in very good Condition. Red pyro has faded a little and upon close examination will have a few flecks of paint missing. This is a mTc bottle which makes it easier to date. This variation is seen in the form of a large T with smaller “m” and “c” sheltered underneath the “roof” of the T, in rather plain “block” style lettering (as shown in photo). This mark was used c.1923 into the early 1950s, and is usually seen embossed on the heel of clear glass milk bottles. It was the dominant mark from 1923 to 1949, although it has been found on bottles up to at least 1954. The date code on this bottle is 1943. On some bottles other numbers are embossed on the heels, but these are not date codes. Specifically, a heel code of 1-11-14 is not a date code. Does not come with white beads.
