Minerals The portion left after ashing of milk at 150ºC is known as the ash of milk and is composed of various inorganic constituents. Ash forms about 0.75 % of milk and plays a very important role in milk and is basic in character. The minerals in milk consist principally of the chlorides citrates and bicarbonates of calcium magnesium potassium and sodium.
Because of this the value of individual bottles can range from only $10 to $500 and even higher. Additionally due of the vast variety of bottles produced it has been impossible for anyone to really do the research to determine values for them all. Due to this factor if you are interested in this sub-niche it is necessary that you be willing to take somewhat of a shotgun approach that involves some risk and this should be considered before making a final decision The only ones you should initially consider will have ALL the following characteristics If even one of these six requirements is not there do not even consider the bottle unless you are very knowledgeable about collectible milk bottles. They must be 1 quart in size They must have a round body They must be at least 8? tall They must have both a town and state name on them They must have a dairy creamery or farm name on them These town state and dairy names must be in colored (Pyro) graphics Here is how I have been buying them for the past several years.I buy any milk bottle that meets the previously mentioned six requirements if I can buy it for $20 or less.
Do not let the fact that a bottle is from a state that is known as a diary state dissuade you from buying it. Many of the bottles from these states are rare and command high prices. Bottles with more than one color will usually bring higher prices. Bottles with attractive graphics on their reverse side will often bring higher prices things such as babies; war related themes patriotic themes and herds of cows are just a few things to be on the lookout for. A word of caution In the last several years reproductions of some milk bottles have begun to appear more and more. Fortunately the vast majority of reproductions are of other types of milk bottles but there are reproductions of 1 quart Pyro-Glaze milk bottle as well.
