Each great vintage glass bottle has been silk screened:
in all its finery. These were made by the Stetz Bottling Works from Charleroi, Pennsylvania - lots of years ago. Each Bottle features pictures of happy fruits - lemons (or limes), oranges, grapes, cherries, pineapples and strawberries, and reads:

These bottles are definitely old-style with extra design features and show some wear and tear as they were returnable bottles. We've not completely cleaned them as we don't like to harm the value. They have been dusted off, but you might decide to clean them further.
The bottom of the bottle has been impressed with serial numbers and other information.
These were found in the Old Mission Bottling Company in Donora, PA (once an ice house). Donora is the home of SilverCrow Creations. The Donora Volunteers bought the building for storage. We thought this a great way to support the DVFC and their valiant efforts.
Annie's Dad was a volunteer firefighter for over 70 years here in Donora - and he never wanted to throw anything away. We thought this a great way to remember him and honor our local heroes.
Each bottle measures 9-1/2 inches high by 2-1/4 inches (the bottom diameter).
We will donate the entire sale price from every purchase to the Donora Volunteer Fire Company. Only the difference in shipping will be deducted from the price!
What a great vase for just a few wild flowers, or a nice display bottle. Or, buy one of our old-fashioned laundry sprinklers and use this bottle when you're ironing.
