These came in a box of many bottles and things that I purchased at an auction. I was only after a cardboard coke carrier, but the whole lot was well worth it. They are from the Gruber Bottling works in Philly, Pa. . One says just that and the other is from after his sons joined the business, it says Charles J Gruber and Sons. The info I got online for the company was that it was Gruber until 1907 then the sons were added until around 1914. I was wondering how accurate that might be if anybody knows, I would appreciate the help. Also would muriatic acid take the cloudiness out of the inside or is there a better way to clean them. I have only rinsed them out so far.
