Just found 5 of these at an estate sale. These are really cool. Dark amber bubbled glass. mint labels but I can not find any info on date made ( I'm guessing early 1900's) since Schmidt brewery closed. Can any one help? I need a good book with this bottle in it for history and value. Please help.

    Its called a picnic bottle,and they were usually transported in lidded wood cases,with dividers.They were usually unpastuerized, and were called picnic beers because they held multiple servings,perfect for a picnic.Your bottle was made before 1951,because of the IRTP (tax statement) on the bottle.I have seen them sell from 20 to 60.00 at local shows.
