    You can still buy a soda called Cheerwine; ..I think produced in NC. Very tasty stuff. Might have been similar to the Bludwine. I have nearly the same bottle as yours but from Florida cities. 1915-1920 range.

    Apparently they stopped using the name Bludwine in the early 20s, so I assume it dates to the 1910s since it's ABM. And Bludwine was a brand of soda that was marketed to have some very questionable health benefits, hence the "for your health's sake" slogan.

    Need help finding out how much bottles are worth.

    ...who are giving the information! The Jacksonville shoulder script Coca-Cola's seem pretty common...there is one on eBay now for a $20 BIN that has not sold. I'd guess $10-$20 for the one you have in the condition it is in. The Bludwine isn't the most common version so may be worth about the...

    Need help finding out how much bottles are worth.

    The Bludwine and the Coca Cola bottle are the only bottles I probably would have brought home if I had found them. The rest are mostly $1 at best and recycling at worse.

    Need help finding out how much bottles are worth.

    ...hurt the value significantly, but it's still a desirable bottle. Nothing else there of much value unfortunately, as far as I can tell. The Bludwine might bring around $20 or so if the condition isn't too bad. Otherwise they're $5 and under bottles, as far as I can tell. If you're looking...

    Prohibition bottles - list?

    ...Wineberre, 2 types of Blatz (patents 71289 and 85044), Hudepohl, and a nice Orange Crush bottled by Pabst. There are many others, I'm sure. Bludwine and perhaps some of the others pre-date prohibition, so it's confusing." Wineberre popped up in one of my searches but I'm not sure if its...

    First use of "hobble skirt" to describe Coca-Cola bottles?

    I tried to find an official explanation as to why Bludwine started advertising their bottle as the "Hobble Skirt Bottle" but could not find one. The term was obviously because of the hobble skirt dress, which consumers were no doubt familiar with at the time, but other than that, the use of the...

    I hope 'Jill' checks back here. She started a good one. I hope this helps her. Great stuff Bob. Bludwine sure doesn't sound like it was to tasty.

    First use of "hobble skirt" to describe Coca-Cola bottles?

    ...the first Hobble Skirt, but this has become the subject of controversy over the years and has never been officially confirmed. 1913 Bludwine is the first soft drink brand to use the term Hobble Skirt Bottle in advertising. 1915 The Contour Coca Cola bottle is patented by the Root Glass...

    First use of "hobble skirt" to describe Coca-Cola bottles?

    I'm back ... But I really don't know what to tell ya except that 1913 is the earliest ad I can find for Bludwine that uses the term "Hobble Skirt Bottle." I'm finding lots of Bludwine ads that go as far back as 1908, but none of those use the term "Hobble Skirt Bottle." So it appears that...

    First use of "hobble skirt" to describe Coca-Cola bottles?

    P.S. I'm currently researching Bludwine to see if I can find anything else involving them and the term "hobble skirt." There just might be a reference if I closely search the 1910 through 1913 newspapers. I'll be back if I find anything.

    First use of "hobble skirt" to describe Coca-Cola bottles?

    Final questions w/answers ... Q: Is there a connection between the Bludwine hobble-skirt bottle and the hobble skirt dress? A: Yes - because of their similarity in shape. Q: Is there a connection between the Bludwine hobble-skirt bottle and the 1915 Coca Cola bottle? A: Yes - Bludwine used...

    First use of "hobble skirt" to describe Coca-Cola bottles?

    ...Wright Brothers or not, the Coca Cola hobbleskirt bottle nickname can't possibly be connected to the Wright Brothers because the soft drink "Bludwine" used the term at least as early as 1913, which was a full two years before the Patent 1915 Coca Cola hobbleskirt bottle was even designed. It...
