    why would a bottle have a rounded bottom,cannot stand on it's own

    Hello all. Ginger Ale Collector here. Having studied the round bottom bottle for a number of years I found that this site (link at end of post) has the most complete and well-documented information on the subject. (The site is also excellent for all kinds of information on old bottles.) Also...

    Hello from the Ginger Ale Collector- need help contacting a member about a ginger ale

    Hey judu4- thanks for replying! Never knew where it was from. I am interested, but of course it depends on what "just a bit of damage" means. . . :-). And the real important part is how strong and clean the embossing is. Let me know, either here or in a private message. Thanks. Ken.

    Hello from the Ginger Ale Collector- need help contacting a member about a ginger ale

    Hello everyone, I haven't been real active over the last few years in ABN as other demands in life have taken priority. I was going through ABN looking for things about ginger ale that I might have missed. I found a ginger ale in a post that I need to replace. In the post here it is...

    Gold Seal soda bottle by coca cola

    Duh. Somehow I missed the obvious fact that the Gold Seal Ginger Ale bottle had already been posted and an ad as well. Dunno how I missed that, but I did. In any case, I will say that in the years I have been collecting ginger ales, I've only seen a few of these, so it is rare in my experience...

    Sunnyside Ginger Ale by the Narragansett Brewing Co.

    Hello all- just picked up this post- and yes I remember being shown the Sunnyside Ginger ale bottle from Narragansett. And I have not seen another, and yes, they most certainly made ginger ale during prohibition. While the bottle may date from 1920, the label may be later. The graphics and...

    Ginger Ale thread and news from Ginger Ale Collector

    Hi Kevin, I never took the time to research the bottle, and mine is buried in a box somewhere, so your addition of the marks is helpful to be sure. At the time I was wondering about the origin of the bottle, we did not have the luxury and benefit of David Whitten's extraordinary website on...

    Ginger Ale thread and news from Ginger Ale Collector

    dw3000, of course you are right, if the bottle was made in Canada by Owens Illinois, it would more than likely have the diamond "D". However, it is possible that a Canadian bottler might have used a bottle not made in Canada. But, I think it is more likely that I did not recall correctly where...

    Ginger Ale thread and news from Ginger Ale Collector

    Hello Leon- I miss the old post also- but we are on to another now. Regarding your Glendale Springs labelled bottle, it's a funny thing. . . I have the same label, but it is on another round bottom bottle, a Vincent Hathaway from Boston, not a Standard Bottling Co., like yours. Many bottlers...

    Ginger Ale thread and news from Ginger Ale Collector

    Hello lblackvelvet, That bottle has been in my collection for years and to date, no one has been able to tell me either where it is from. The only clue I've had over the years is that I've seen it for sale on eBay twice, and unless my memory fails me, the people listing the bottle were both from...
