That’s also a nice amber stubby bottle.
do you have a picture of the bottom of the bottle. I’d guess it’s anywhere from 1940-1943 based on all the others I’ve seen from Houston.
Do you have any pictures of your other 7up bottles and are you in the market to sell?
Hi Iggy, been a while since I’ve been on the forum. How are you?
I know if you haven’t seen it either it’s a good chance that this is another rare bottle that I’ve found. I’m wondering could it have been a bottle for another soda too (like orange Crush since it was an orange crush bottling...
Grace Abound I do like your Shreveport bottle. Do you have many 7up bottles?
Mine is a little different with the stretched Teardrop/diamonds around the neck and the lower position and script of the 7up embossed letters as well.
Found this Unique early 7up bottle at a show in Daphne, AL.
Odd embossing pattern with what I’m calling a “stretched teardrop” with the 7up logo too.

7up lady fan,
Your Bakersfield, CA bottle should also have the ingredient Lithium listed instead of Lithia that appears on most swimsuit bottles after 1940.
Unsure of the reasoning behind this change for 1948.
I have a bottle from New Orleans with same letter styling.
Well thanks for taking the mystery out of what it was originally from.
Never would have thought of an ashtray. Wish I had the ashtray and straw (mentioned in worthpoint link) to go with it.
Seems to so far be a regional advertising piece for at least 2 Wisconsin bottlers. One in Tomah and...
This is my latest 7up purchase.
I know it’s rare. But I’m not sure exactly what it is? Some kind of sample from a salesman? Or a test?
As you can see in pics the bottle is small. It is made of glass. Has a screw top bottom. Has a White filled in swimsuit. Has an early shield style neck logo...
You outbid me on the 7up bottles, Iggy. Glad you got them though.
They are interesting bottles for sure. Didnt know the green one was plastic wrapped.
I like the larger bottles. So many of those foam wrapped ones seem to have been destroyed.
I recently got one of these 64 oz bottles. The neck...
Welcome to the forum Hogwild.
I believe they are rare, but not necessarily overly valuable to most collectors. Especially depending on condition.
I collect 7up bottles and have only seen a handful of them for sale online. Ive been collecting for 3 years now and just acquired one of the...
It seems that both of these bottles were produced in Norwalk and Columbus Ohio. If you're in Michigan you are much closer to the source. My white swimsuit bottle came from Florence, Kentucky, so it hadnt traveled far from Columbus, Ohio.
Who knows you might run across one in your area too.
Thanks. Im all for others finding more of the orange and white swimsuit bottles. They are rare for sure. If I had time Id go to Ohio. specifically Norwalk and Columbus area since thats where they were made.
Leon. Most of the 7up swimsuit bottles do not have painted swimsuits. These appear to have only been produced by the Downey-Joyce company and probably only a very limited run. I believe we know of 5 of the white swimsuit bottles and only one of the orange swimsuits.
Below is a link to a...
Greetings all. I have located another White Swimsuit 7up bottle from Joyce Products. Not only located but purchased it off eBay.
It goes well with my orange Swimsuit girl bottle.
Most of these pictures have been taken with camera flash on. The ACL is very grayed out but displays nicely.
Nice Finds Iggyworf!
I think the Kielys bottles are from the 60s. Shield style logo used after 1952.
Never seen anything with "Satisfies Thirst" on it before. Neat crate
I need some of those foil labels to add top my collection.
