City, County, State, and Regional directories are useful tools in
dating the firms that marked and labeled bottles. The site now
offers a collection of directory listings to help collectors, researchers, and
archeologists identify pertinent information about the firms that used
soda and beer bottles.
The directory collection consists of two distinct sets of
information. The are as follows:
Glass Works Related Directory Listings
- Links are here to pages that list glass manufacturing, fabricators
and jobbers that may be related to bottle production by a specific
city or state. Much of this information is not present in the
Directory Listing Search Tool.
Directory Listing Search Tool
- This tool allows a user to customize a search for a specific firm,
city, state, or occupation. A year filter allows for the
restriction of the search to a specific range of years. The
listing included those that have bottles listed on this site as well
as those where there are no bottles currently known. Additionally, it also
provides links to bottles that are related to the listed directory
When searching for bottles, the directory listings associated with the
firm that produced the bottles are provided by clicking on the "See
History" link next to the firm name. There are over 29,904
directory listings accessible in this tool.
Click on the links above to get directory information on bottles that you are researching.
This information is by no means complete. This information has been manually transcribed from directories of
many different cities and states. As these were manually transcribed,
there may be mistakes.
If you would like to contribute "transcribed" directory listing to this
collection, please contact me at
Todvon@verizon.net and I can make arrangements to get this information loaded into it.
