Pottery Bottles from Wisconsin

Pottery bottles were among the first bottles produced for Wisconsin soda and beer bottlers and merchants. The earliest were made in the 1840’s, and more began to appear in the 1850’s and 1860’s. Pottery bottles peaked in the 1870’s, and by the 1880’s they were falling out of favor. While some were still used in the 1890’s, by the turn of the century they had become obsolete.
