Bob, I forgot to say thanks for that enlightment!..great info and cool ads. I'll definetly try to adopt these terms when refering to the differnt styles of Pepsi bottles! :)
I don't think so, I believe these had the unusual shape to warn people that they contained poison, so that it was harder to confuse them with something else.
Nice find by the way! Poisons...
I got a Hobnail Tivoli Soda Bottle from the 1920's.
Was this design based on packaging?
Super tiny, any idea what was in it originally?
Based on the swirled colors, the shape, the hobnail pattern, and the rough ends, I'd estimate this to be from a 1960s table-lamp.
While these are slightly newer (1910s-1920s), yours from the 1900-1910s period would have had a label something like these.
