    Enterprise Bottling Works- Orange Crush

    Hi TxBottleDigger.... with respect to the 'remains' of that bottle, it looks like the classic, clear, 'krinkly, 6oz. bottle of O.C. - bottled by that specific bottling company in Texas. That style bottle began in the early 1920's, although different styles of the clear, 'krinkly' appeared...

    Hi UrsusMeansBear... welcome to this site....your bottle is the Canadian version of what we term 'Mr.Crushy Right', meaning the little man face on one side. Your bottle has distinct characteristics for the Canadian version compared to the American version of this same 6oz. bottle... stippled top...

    Orange crush bottles.

    Hi RobbyBobby... I have been reviewing Orange Crush comments etc., and came across your bottles which you showed us in Feb.2021.... my only comment is that these American bottles are capped with Canadian crown caps, making me suspicious that they have been refilled and recapped. Would appreciate...

    Orange Crush "Mae West" Bottles Pre 1960

    Hi Shadeone.... thanks for the 'plug' for my book. I have reviewed not only my book but also 'things' left over from the Mae West era.... your question is a tough one, and without multiple bottles in my hands now, it is hard to answer. Hopefully other O.C. collectors with re-look their Mae West...

    Orange crush bottles.

    Hi RobbyBobby... just reviewing O.C.site... those three bottles are nice, but recall, the 'green' one is not an O.C. drink, but a drink of another company with the bottle made by O.C. bottling company. As well the other two bottles, I believe, have been refilled and recapped. The crown caps are...

    Orange Crush-new variation!

    Hi Ivan... always nice to have a surprise from you, with your extensive knowledge.... In my book on p.51, I do state "it is not clear is a shorter version exists," with reference to the right facing Mr.Crushy on the 6oz. As well the figure 'u' is frontwards, indicating Canadian, and yet the base...

    Orange Crush bottle help

    Hi again Johnny Crush.... I reread what I wrote and reviewed your pictures. Yes, the height of the so-called 'squat' bottles is 75/8". The KEY to these bottles is the front ACL is NOT centred and lies below the midpoint of the body of the bottle. Mr.Crushy, arms over head or extended both occur...

    Pre 1930 green orange crush bottle

    Hi Jeffsattic... your bottle is a 6oz., 1924 bottle produced by one of the Orange Crush bottling companies for another brand. It most probably had a paper label as well as the embossing. Shown on p.111 of my book.
