Hello! Thank you for your question. The Rakow Research Library has trade catalogs from Wheaton/Nuline, which made milk bottle reproductions in the late 1960s and early 1970s that match your description. The bottles were available in blue, green, topaz, orange and "flint." They came in 3 sizes: 1/2 pint, pint, and quart. The bottles were made in Italy, had porcelain sealing caps, and were embossed as you describe.

The Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center Frequently Asked Questions - Museum of American Glass web page includes a discussion of "Wheaton bottles" that contains additional information. 

Here is a list of materials in our collection on Wheaton/Nuline (Wheaton Products after 1973):

Below are other items that might be of interest (links here and above are to Rakow Library catalog records unless otherwise noted):

The Library lends designated books and sends articles via Interlibrary Loan. If you would like to borrow materials, contact your local library to make your request.
