    Whistle Bottling Company

    Even though my passion these days is collecting St. Louis marked bottles, on occasion I will acquire a bottle that appeals to me. This Whistle bottle did just that, I like the fact that it has a square base to it and has a nice color. This bottle is from the Whistle Bottling Co. of Granite City...

    Tab ginger ale bottle

    I always thought Tab was just one Of Coca Cola's Diet Cola's, but it turns out there were several flavors of sugar free Tab sodas' This ad is 1975, so your guess is correct mid to late 1970's bottle.

    Identify thin-walled round-bottomed with external turned lip

    From a 1906 Illinois Glass Company catalogue, looks like it could possibly be a show bottle. What is a show bottle used for? Trying to find out!

    Warren Arkansas soda

    Its not a NuGrape bottle, NuGrape soda had their own distinctive shape. Now it could have come from a Nugrape Bottling Company if there was one in Warren. I am guessing a local bottling company in Warren used this bottle for any number of flavors.

    hmmm, I wonder who else used vim, vigor & vitality to describe there soda. 3V Cola surely did in 1958

    Queen City bottling company

    Looks like VIM was the name of Queen City's Ginger Ale. Found ads that date from 1915 to 1920. Could be a wider range of dates though. Found this ad in the Cincinnati Enquirer dated July of 1920.

    Modified R.C. Cola bottle?

    I remember these bottles, all sorts of different brands, that were prizes for carnival games. Had two in my collection for many years until one broke. I do not miss it. I had to look, mine is an RC also. I do not hold any real value to it maybe a buck or two.

    DR Pepper Bottles

    For some reason I had trouble uploading pic, this new format had me confused for a bit. I didn't want to show them so big! Hopefully I got it now.

    Paper Label SPUR bottles

    Cool bottles! I like the embossing around the neck and the textured glass. I don't recall seeing paper label versions of Spur in the St. Louis area, mainly the six or seven ounce acl versions. I agree with the other comments that the closures are not original to the bottle, would have had a...

    Cherry 7 Up

    Iggy, you were absolutely correct in that Cherry 7 up was introduced in 1987. I found an article in an old newspaper article that stated the Seven Up Co. was introducing Cherry 7 Up to lure youngsters to drinking their new flavor. So my bottle definitely dates to 1987 or later. Thanks

    Cherry 7 Up

    Thanks for all the input. I can now narrow down the date of the bottle being the early 1980's and a not so common bottle. Perhaps one last hurrah for a soda in a returnable glass bottle before everything came in cans and plastic.

    Cherry 7 Up

    Purchased this Cherry 7 Up today for $15.00 at a local anitique mall. Never seen one before and it was especially clean. Cannot make out the makers mark as it has a really shallow impression almost looks like a star in a circle with 770 next to it. Could not find that mark in my usual sources. I...
