This Vintage Dairylea Dairy Men's League Co-Operative Association Inc Half Pint Milk Bottle measures 5 1/2 inches high by 2 3/8 inch in diameter at the bottom. Crystal clear glass with a few light scratches and pits. No cracks or chips. The bottle is in EXCELLENT Condition. Half pint milk bottles were used for cream and milk for school lunches.
The raised lettering on this bottle is in pristine condition. No scratches, discoloration from wear or dings of any kind.
From the research I have done on this and similar milk bottles, I believe this milk bottle was used in the early to mid 1940's. The half pint milk bottles are very hard to find especially in EXCELLENT condition.
Dairylea dates back to 1907, when a group of dairy farmers in Orange County, New York, united to increase their bargaining power. They formed the Dairymen’s League, one of America's first cooperatives.
The Cooperative introduced the name "Dairylea," combining Dairymen’s and League, for its products in 1923, which went on to become one of the leading brands in the Northeast. In the 1960's the Cooperative changed its name to Dairylea Cooperative Inc.
