Over the years I have tried to find the origin of the term "Wave" for the patent 1940 Pepsi Cola bottle, but was never able to determine exactly when or where the nickname originated. As far...

I'm a little confused about your use of the term "Swirl" -- Especially where you said Canada went to the swirl design in 1951. The swirl bottle wasn't patented until 1955-56. I'm attaching...

Is the R on the base inside a circle? If so, it might have been made by Rockware Glass Ltd in England whose mark was an (R) in a circle.
Are there any numbers or other marks on the...

Dimples = Inset / Round

As far as I know, the only Howdy flavor other than Orange was Ginger Ale. The Ginger Ale must have been short-lived because I can only find references for it between 1924 and 1927. Both of...
LONDON, ENGLAND -- AMBER -- SWIMSUIT -- 7 BUBBLE -- DATE UNKNOWN
This is the only example from England I am aware of. I don't know if the amber color is original or altered / irradiated. I have...
Here's an example of a 7up bottle that VERY likely had the 0 (zero) added to the mold of a bottle that was actually made in 1945. Offset numbers like the zero on this 7up bottle were rarely if ever...
Here's a cropped, enhanced pic of the base - but even zooming in on it I can't tell for certain about the position of the number 4
I just came across this discussion this morning and thought I'd add a few comments ...

Thanks for sharing -- Do you have a pic of the front of your bottle? -- The main thing we have been looking for are the 3-1-3 bubbles
Congratulations - Great Find
I haven't been around lately but check in from time-to-time. I'm currently working on a project that I'll tell you about in a month or two. I recall seeing...
I heard my name mentioned and thought I'd add my two-cents worth. Those Sailor (not Popeye) tumblers were produced by the Hazel Atlas Glass Company for Big Top peanut butter. There were a series of...
This ad is by the same bottler from the same newspaper as the last one I posted. But its dated two weeks earlier and depicts a straight-sided paper label bottle - suggesting that...

Good to hear from you. Except for barqlady, no one has posted on this thread for about three years. I posted the attached newspaper snippet earlier but don't recall exactly when. Based on...
My initial finding is that the 1957 on the Teem signs is a production number and not a date. The MCA stands for the Massillon Cleveland Akron sign company, that was located in Massillon, Ohio and...
Cool. And even though we will probably never know the location, the Glenshaw 59 seven ounce bottle is no doubt a first issue when Teem was introduced in 1959. I'm going to look around and see if I...
Did you check the lip of your Glenshaw bottle for an embossed letter or number? 1959 might be a little late for the lip codes, but it might be worth checking if you haven't already.
What (if anything) do you know about these Teem bottles and crate? The seller described them as ...

I posted this newspaper article earlier, but this time I underlined three key factors. And because they are quotes from Herbert L. Barnet, I consider them reliable. If I were to look for a particular...

Thanks for the pic. Actually, I'm thinking the bottle is of European origin because of the applied finish (lip) and especially because of the "slop over" glass below the base of the lip....
