Agee Pyrex Feeder Bottle

c. 1944
Overview

Clear glass rectangular shaped tall feeding bottle with rounded rim.

Historical information

This is an Agee Pyrex baby's feeding bottle with imperial and metric capacity markings embossed in the glass. The heat resistant properties of Pyrex made it a popular item, but the narrow neck of this bottle would have made it very difficult to clean.
