    Matt I have some background info re the Nelson Homan bottles. He owned a dairy farm in Forrestville ny until at least the 1950s I found your post trying to find background on his farm as my mother was a foster child there in the late 1940s....if you still have them I'd be extremely interested in buying one you can contact me at 716 348-6722

    Thanks
    Dan

    Love finding the old milk bottles. Years ago I bought a box of the old paper lids. Think I still have them somewhere.

    Hey Matt,
    I deleted your address. I wouldn’t post this information to the open forum for safety reasons.
