First Nu Grape Bottle

This was the Atlanta company that invented NuGrape. The star was carried over to the fancy straightside and later the 1920 patent waisted NuGrape bottles.

Currently on ebay:

    I do not understand, was the star flipped the other way on the bottle at one time?

    What's the story on the Nu Icy? I've seen it before and always thought it to be a Nu Grape product but, what did the Nu Icy bottle hold? Different flavors?

    Yes Nu-Icy was a brand introduced by the Nu-Grape company in 1927. It was a flavor line, and offered many different flavors.

    Holy crap-o-la, did I just catch the resident bottle expert not knowing something as common as this!?!?


    Naw, at any rate, I actually thought they all had inverted pentagrams on them, becuase the first one I found (a broken bottle) had it.


    The only Nu-Grape that really interests me is like the one in the middle of this picture (which is like the one I found):

    Tell me about it. I really, really, really wish that bottle I found had been complete.

    I'm going to venture that it would have been worth in the neighborhood of $70 ... and northwards.
