Wisconsin antique bottle and advertising club

J.F. Dallinger Milwaukee and Tacoma

The J.F. Dallinger hutch from Milwaukee is relatively rare. Recently, a nearly identical variety of this bottle appeared on eBay except that it was embossed with the city of Tacoma, Washington instead of Milwaukee. Then another eBay listing appeared for the Milwaukee variety with a paper label. It was being sold by a different Tacoma area seller who was a descendant of Joseph Dallinger. The seller had a pair of Dallinger Milwaukee bottles with paper labels that had passed down in his family. They were generic stock labels without Dallingers name printed on them.

Joseph Dallinger apparently started bottling soda in Milwaukee and then moved to Tacoma after one year taking his bottles with him. He ordered a new batch with Tacoma on them and sold his soda in both the Milwaukee and Tacoma bottles. Diggers in the lower Puget Sound area find both varieties. According to Milwaukee City Directories, up until 1899 he's listed as a policeman, and then in the 1899 directory it says manufacturer of soda water, with the address of 676 4th Ave - both his business and home. He's listed as "soda maker" in the 1900 Census.

Joseph H. Dallinger was born in Wisconsin in 1865. He first appeared in a Tacoma directory is 1902 where he's listed as a foundry helper, and continued to be listed as "laborer" from then on, as he was on the 1910 Census, working as "laborer" at the Tacoma Smelter. He died in Tacoma on Feb. 25th, 1938.
