I already talked to Max about this one and his explanation was quit plausible (making the embossed letters white to make the writing stand out more)
But I want to share this one with you guys.
Ran into this Original 1895. The embossed marks are painted white. Just wondering if there is anyone who seen that before on other bottles..

there used to be a seller on ebay that did this to make the text show up better in his auctions but I always thought it was just a wipe off ink

 

I can't see why they would be done officially, remember this embossed side was actually the rear of the bottle not the front

No mate, it really looks like paint, done in a bad way :)

Just the regular embossing is done great. Can't see why too.... but I guess I can get it off if I want.....

I have to agree with Max here.  That white paint makes that bottle really stand out in a cabinet in an antique store.  A great way to draw attention to it.  I have seen this done on many bottles, but I do not recall it being done on a Jack bottle.  Either way, great score Edwin.

Can someone tell me please, which company made the first JD glass bottles? I was allways wondered who made it ...... the Owens-Illinois Glass Company do that from the thirties on, or? When I see Edwins bottle from around 1900 and they had allready the special disign from body and neck ( but no trademark! ) so is it just curious for me ??)

I believe there were many glass companies that made bottles for Jack back then Lutz.  I know one of them was Brockway.  It had the "B" on the bottom of the bottle.  I do not know the names of the others.

I know a few collectors who paint the letters on their older bottles.
I don't like it, but they are not my bottles.
The bottles were not made like this originally.

If they don't have the "B" on the bottom, I don't think anyone knows who made them.
