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.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with glass-related questions in the future!
