    New to the Morbious Fod collection II: Electric Boogaloo

    Having posted on the original thread to long I have decided to not only create a new thread but to move it to this section, due to the majority of my acquisitions being soda or soda related, it only makes more sense.

    Following up a new lead led me into the wilds of lower West Virginia where I found a few decent pieces, and some hey that's neat items. Saturday found me on one of my "Let's just drive and see where we end up" exploring trips into North Carolina. I hit North Wilkesboro, the home of Sun Flower Beverages, passed through Winston-Salem, but didn't stop, and went on to Mayberry (Mount Airy), and continued on up 52 hitting the occasional shop on the way. Wilksboro only had one antique shop; however, the majority of my finds was there. They had some other stuff I was interested in, but not $35 dollars interested. The surprising thing was that there were no Sun Flowers to be found. So let's get started.



    This one is off the bay.

    While the middle one was won off of Ebay the bottles flanking it are a 1946 Nesbitt's from Pocahontas, VA, while having a better acl than my present one, it had a chip on the bottom, but I can deal with that. The other bottle is a Cherry River from the Nesbitts Bottling Company of Richwood WVA. I just liked the acl so I picked it up. It is a 1955. I found the last two in West Virginia if you couldn't guess.

    You may have seen my post of the Northfork WVA Big Bottle deco, well this is it's newer cousin from the Welch WVA plant of the Northfork Coca Cola group, and this Dixie Beverages from Northfork WVA might be the successor of the Big Bottle brand in Northfork. Too bad this bottle had a huge lip chip, I really liked this one.

    But now we get into the bottles that made the trip worthwhile. This is a Dixie-Ola from the Roanoke Bottling Company which was incorporated in 1926, and I'm sure they didn't last too long due to Coca-Cola's being sue crazy of anyone using any variation of the name Cola at this time. The other interesting thing about this bottle is that there is a good possibility that they had a franchise in a cross roads town known as Mouth of Wilson, VA, where Field's Manufacturing was bottling this brand, even though the caps still have Roanoke, VA on them, and their own flavor line. I still don't have any concrete dates for the operation of the bottling operations at Mouth of Wilson, and not Mouth of Wilson bottles have arisen only bottle caps.

    Those are some nice ACL's. I am looking for a green glass Nesbitt's 10oz bottle but am having a time locating one.

    I have several Nesbitt's bottles and some other flavors that were bottled by different Nesbitt's bottlers around the country.

    Regards, Don Nesbitt - no relation to the bottlers.

    Sorry supper was about to burn. Next we have this little beauty which is as mint as mint can get with these bottles, it is a 1944 Dr. Pepper from Marion, VA. Call it Karma or whatever this bottle has to be something paying me back for all the broken, melted, sick, chipped, and stained ones of this very bottle that I brought home from that broken bottle dump that I spent so much time digging in only to come up with very little. This bottle alone made that trip into the backwoods of WV worthwhile.

    Are you ready for one of my favorite finds from WV? Well it's not in very good shape; however, I think a 1946 Squirt bottle fits the bill. Serious fading all over, but it's an example of a bottle I haven't laid eyes on until now. Now it's time for the upgrade.

    Now we transition into the North Carolina finds, the first being the nice but lightly stained on the the inside Caravan Green Ginger Ale bottle that I picked up in Barney Fife's territory. I didn't seen Andy or Aunt Be anywhere, but I did find this bottle. It's friend is the last hold over from the WV trip and it is a 1929 Rock Cliff Ginger Ale bottle, the real reason I picked up this bottle was for the cap that was attached to it. I don't have a Rock Cliff Ginger Ale bottle cap, and now I do, and it's an early one.
