There is something magnetic in old bottles. For many collectors, milk bottles are holding a huge nostalgic feel of a bygone age. Its unclear, when the first milk bottles came into use, but their history date back for at least 130 years. In Estonia, glass bottles and jars are manufactured more than 100 years. Several great facturies were into this business  – Meleski, Lorupi, Tarbeklaas and a few more.
