A milk bottle from Mcilhaney dairy in Lubbock Tx and Albuquerque NM They were in operation from 1925-1950. I had trouble getting a good pic. May have to fill it with something. This bottle is probably late 40's. This company was owned by a great uncle of mine. I have been looking for years for one of their bottles and found one. I filled it with white sand. to make it more visible

    For some reason I bet the milk tasted awesome from these bottles ;)

    Thanks Hotkitties. Unfortunately they went out of business a long time before I came along. My great uncle lived up to his late 90's. He was quite a businessman.

    They were also one of the last companies to deliver milk by horse drawn carriage

    This is what's called a cream top bottle, the bulbuse neck allowed the cream to rise to the top, to be lifted out with a special spoon.

    Cleaned out my parent's store house and found a box with a collection of old bottles and jars. One was a McIlhaney Dairy Products bottle. I think it is great!! Let me know if you would like a pic.

    My grandfather was George McIlhaney and was a dairyman. He and his brother both had dairies. I would be very interested in buying this bottle if you ever decide to sell it.

    Thanks for all the comments. I am glad a lot of folks really like this bottle. It is not for sale, however. My family ran this dairy. Thank you for asking, however.
