Got Milk...caps?

Fresh milk, delivered daily to your door in a lovely glass bottle with a really cool top. From the 1880's to 1960's, this was how most families received their milk. After 1960 paper cartons became the norm for milk. While you can still get milk in glass bottles from a few dairies, they are few and far between. 

A couple of years ago, my husband started collecting these milk bottle tops for me. I love them.  I keep them in a big jar on my kitchen counter.  My kids and I, enjoy dumping them out and examining the uniqueness of each one. I hope you will enjoy looking at them too.
