This "Allenburys" double ended, with flat under panels, Baby/ Infant Feeder is just a little over 7 inches long. It sits on a flat under panel. Embossed on the top "The Allenburys Feeder Made in England". It has graduation marks on the base "Ounces" & "Tablespoons". On the panel itself is embossed "Patent British 15449/05" and below the graduation scale, "Reg. No. British 543183/0910690/23/1359" This feeder is in excellent condition. This bottle was made between 1894 and 1912.

In 1894 the first 'banana' shaped feeder, the Allenburys' feeder, appeared on the market. It was made by the partnership of Allen and Hanburys and was marketed as being 'most easily cleansed'. It quickly became popular. Other companies soon followed the example.

A nipple went on one end and a stopper,vent, went on the other end. These bottles were NOT made for twins.

These bottles were marketed as being safer to use than the turtle or "murder" bottles but still were far less popular in the U.S. than the other types of bottles.


A shipping cost of $4.95 will be added to the item price at checkout.
