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!



  I'll put the photos of the Glass from here down.

First is the early A Phillips
This is the first bottle.....


  Next is the second version of his bottle (on the right) and the Quart that came out after his son joined as partner in 1879

 Cleaned and as found in the ocean..

 The Hutchinson type closure,
