Old Braziers Dairy bottle

Half pinta

By Neil Hamilton

Wonder how many homes in Oxhey and Carpenders Park this half pinta was delivered to.

It would have had the old style cardboard top.

  • This bottle is an early model, which as you point out had a wax coated cardboard top with a centre hole which could be pressed out to enable you to use a straw to drink from the bottle. The later bottles had the name in green. I can remember Ivy Everett who worked in the dairy having to press the lids in by hand, as the bottling machine which filled 12 bottles at a time, 6 either side of the revolving platform was not equipped for sealing the tops. Automatic sealing was introduced with the narrow neck bottles.
