A Phillips Victoria B.C.

Alexander Phillips was in business a long time!
As his own entity has ran from 1858 to 1876...from 1876 to 1877 he took on Paul Bocain as a partner...this lasted to 1878. In 1879 his son Phillip Aaron became a partner.....so the bottles are embossed A Phillips and Son.....

I'll start with the one tone and two tone pottery pieces..

  Mr Philips used embossed bottles and when in a pinch....the story goes he sent kids out to salvage bottles for him, and embossed or not...he scratched his company initials into the bottles and filled them.




And he used everything!
