15 Most Valuable Old Glass Clorox Bottles (Year & Value)

Do you find old bottles oddly beautiful?

Are you always looking for new finds to add to your collection of antique bottles?

Glass Clorox bottles are some of the most popular collectible bottles.

Their rich history and rustic amber color make them desirable as a gift or a collectible vintage.

Old Clorox glass bottles can be worth anything from $5 to over $300. This depends on the condition of the bottle and the era to which it belongs.

As is the case with most vintage collectibles, the earliest glass Clorox bottles, i.e., those produced in the 1930s, tend to be the most valuable as long as they are in good condition.

In this article, I will take you through some of the most valuable glass Clorox bottles on the market. But, before that, let’s look at a short history of the changes that Clorox bottles have undergone.

The Clorox Company changed its glass bottles’ shape, look, size, and texture through the years. Although many bleach companies tried to mimic Clorox bottles, specific characteristics distinguish this company from others.

For one, all Clorox glass bottles have the brand name embossed on the bottle’s shoulders. Secondly, check the bottle’s underside; it should have a diamond-shaped Clorox trademark.

Depending on the year of production, some bottles will have raised letterings on the neck and heel. Bottles made in the 1930s have wider necks than from the 1920s.

The neck style changed in the years that followed, and the company introduced the bottle with a neck finger handle.

Early Clorox bottles came with a rubber stopper cork, but these were later replaced with screw-top bottles.

Other changes included the introduction of half-gallon, pint and quart size bottles, which were prominent during specific periods.

You should consider all these factors when you are in the market for Clorox glass bottles.

Now, let us jump straight in and find out the most valuable glass Clorox bottles.
