Welton's Bottles - Milk Bottles, Dairy Data and Other Milk Memorabilia


Bottles on this Website

You will soon find that most of the bottles in this collection are from the Southwest, or come from Albuquerque or Santa Fe, New Mexico. Still, there are bottles here from all over the U.S. You can see what you can find.

At the heart of this website is the Search function that sits at the top of every page. You can use it to quickly search for and locate any record in the database. Simply type a string into the text field, select a database table, and then click "Go!"

You can search for bottles using almost any dimension as an index point. Almost every field in the database is a text field, so you can search for bottles by city names, bottle condition ("Near Mint") two-letter state abbreviations ("NM"), pyro color, dairy names, and year of issue.

I also have a classification system I use for my bottles based on their size type. You can search for bottles by size by simply searching for their category abbreviation, which are as follows. You can click on a category abbreviation below to view that category search results.

Foreign bottles in my collection are marked by a flag icon ( ).
