    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Burkenhill Great find - Thanks for sharing. Could you please provide us with a link where you found it. Here's another one that sold on eBay recently. I believe that makes a total of four known examples with that particular slogan ... 1. Mine 2. Rich's 3. Burkenhill - eBay 4. This eBay...

    Speaking of slogans, compare the slogan on Rich's paper label to the wording in this Ad from ... 1932

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Rich Good point! A collector or seller might have glued the label to your bottle in recent years - and every time it changed hands its true origin gets lost. That's why we should never try and date a paper label based on the bottle its adhered to - they are two totally different items. All...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Hemi To Clarify ... Bottlers ordered paper labels by the thousands and generally kept using them until they ran out - at which time they would reorder more, and so on. So it would not be surprising to find an older paper label on a newer bottle, no matter what the brand. Coca Cola and Pepsi...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Rich Yes, I remember those Decals. Apparently they are fantasy reproductions from the 1970s. There is a set of them currently on eBay ... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970s-Pak-5-7-Up-Decals-5-Different-Eras-cc-306/312997140756?hash=item48e0155914:g:GdgAAOSwiS9d9wmf I don't know who...

    HYPOTHESIS / INCONCLUSIVE / UNCONFIRMED / REQUIRES MORE RESEARCH / ETC. Please note all of the above, but as it stands now I am leaning toward ... A 1930-31 7-Up Paper Label on a 1932 Root Bottle

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Rich I discovered something that MIGHT date your paper label. I still need to do some more research, but my initial findings involve the words ... Anti Acid As it stands now, I can only find those words on four 7-Up related items, which I am attaching. I don't know the exact dates for the...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    This could be the missing link - although the 1935 date when they began operation seems a little late ??? 1936 ~ Indianapolis, Indiana

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Rich This news clipping not only answers your question - but it also creates a new one. In other words ... Except for your paper label, I cannot find any indication that Squeeze Bottling Works ever BOTTLED 7-Up. There are no Ads, Articles, or other references to confirm it. Nor can I find...

    Fast forward to 1947 7-Up Bottling Co. Notice Address = 1041 South Union Street

    Squeeze Bottling Works Notice Address = 1041 South Union Street Classified Ad - Want To Buy section 1936 Dekle Coal & Beverage Company Notice ... Address - 1041 South Union Street Phone = 4651 Classified Ad - Want To Buy section 1937

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    To help establish a timeline for Squeeze Bottling, I thought it best to start with this newspaper Ad and Article. Notice ... Address = 314 W. Foster Phone = 146 1929 1931 Even though they were in operation as early as 1929, they did not Incorporate their company until 1931 - which...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Using phone numbers and addresses, I was able to determine that the Squeeze Bottling Works was located at 1041 South Union Street between 1929 and 1936. In 1937, that same location was occupied by the "Dekle Coal & Beverage Company." And in 1942 the Double Cola Bottling occupied the same...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Thanks, Rich - Mucho appreciated Too bad the label doesn't have their address - that would help as well. But the phone number is the next best thing. I will post some ads later, but as near as I can determine at the moment, they started using the 4651 number in 1931-32. In 1929 and 1930...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Rich Speaking of slogans, could you please post (write) EVERY word that's on your label. I realize the photos you posted have most of them, but they are a little hard to make out and I want to be sure I don't miss something. And you are right, its difficult to find and determine every slogan...

    Unusual soda shape

    The reason that I/we can't find a Star Bottling Co. Hutchinson bottle from Fort Worth or Dallas might be because it appears they started out in St. Louis, Missouri and not in Texas. Hence, a search for a Hutchinson bottle from St. Louis might produce something. History...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    P.S. Notice the label has "REG. U.S. PAT. OFF." on it under the 7up That's a significant clue. Now compare that to the dates on these original documents. Also notice that both documents have "The Howdy Company" Especially notice the "August 7, 1928" That's the earliest date known no...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Thanks, Rich That sort of puts things into a Good-news / Bad-news type of scenario when attempting to date the label. The bottle itself is definitely a ROOT 1932. Unfortunately, that doesn't necessarily date the label because it might have been added later. If it had Seven Up Co. on the...

    7up Paper Label Very 1st?

    Did someone mention my name? ;) Hey, Rich Super cool bottle. I wish mine was in that good of shape. The label fell off of mine a long time ago and I had to laminate in plastic to try and preserve it. First Question: On the lower part of the label does it have either of the following...
