Thatcher, a physician and druggist from Potsdam, New York. This glass bottle had an embossed cow being milked. In 1889 the Thatcher Company brought out this bottle. These bottles also contained the embossed cow with a man milking and the wording Absolutely Pure Milk. This paticular bottle is pretty just to display or you can store a quart of milk in it.
