Default Porcelain Bottle Stopper

Hey all! Recovered my 1st porcelain bottle stopper and wondering what date ranges they were used?
Also does anyone recognize the logo or writing?
Thanks for the help!

Someone with more knowledge can narrow it down but generally blobs were 1880-1910 or so I believe so my guess is somewhere in there.

This one looks foreign though so no idea - could be more modern

There still used today. Grolsch is the main one but a lot of micro brews use them too. I use them with my home brews. The metal bit on that one is in pretty good shape for something that's been in the ground. My guess is that one is newer.

Got it thanks for the reply! Hopefully next one is vintage with writing I can make out!

Tough to tell . They still use them today. Since it is imprinted Id guess later than 1950.

Here's a Peter Hand slugplate beer (Chicago) circa 1900 with an imprinted stopper. But as Gaspipe said, many are just plain white porcelain. I have dug several that you could tell they were once imprinted but has worn mostly off. I know those modern Grolsh bottles are imprinted.

When a friend in my MD club gave me a collection of old bottles last year, there was also a bunch of old porcelain stoppers. One way we display them is to fill an old bottle. This one is 8" tall. Most all these stoppers have printing on them.

Who is still using porcelain? My guess is "older, but dropped recently".

Looks like stainless streel wire so I would lean toward more modern, But where did you find it?
