These notes detail Dorothy Blair's visit to the Chugoku Garasu Kogyo Kabushiki Kaisha (The Industrial Glass Joint-Stock Company of the Chugoku Area) in Okayama City, Japan. Included are four envelopes which each contain handwritten notes and photographs relating to subject written on envelope: making of glass urinal; general views; making small (medicine?) bottle, mold blown; and bottle-making by hand-operated machine. These four envelopes are housed in slightly larger envelope with handwritten notes relating to pop bottle made at the factory. A published article written by Dorothy Blair entitled "Japanese pop bottle" is included as well.
Thirteen photos are included along with three pages of notes on making of glass urinals; photos are labeled 1a-e, 2-9. Seventeen photos are included along with eight pages of notes on general views; photos are labeled 1-14 and an additional three photos are pasted onto p. [7] of notes. Twelve photos are included along with two pages of notes on making small (medicine?) bottle, mold blown (using glass blow-pipe); photos are labeled 1a-1d, 2a-2h. Four photos are included along with three pages of notes on bottle-making by hand-operated machine; photos are labeled 1-4.
"CMG object file no. 61.6.47" -- written in blue pen along top of each of four envelopes and along top of article.
The article, Japanese pop bottle, details the mold-blown, transparent green glass bottle that has two compartments, divided by short neck, where two inner projections prevent a marble (inserted in upper portion before mouth was formed) from dropping into lower part; this type of bottle was originally purposed for ramone-e, or "lemonade". One of these such soft drink bottles is in the Corning Museum of Glass collection, accession no. 61.6.47, and was a gift of Dorothy Blair.
