If the Lime Cola Company had a regional purpose in mind regarding the down-slant versus the up-slant embossing, the reason eludes me. As you will see, the down-slant was also used on Alabama bottles as well as Georgia bottles. But even more confusing is that the Georgia bottles slanted in both directions. Athens, Alabama Down-Slant
The following observations pertain to the straight-sided Lime Cola bottles only and not to the ones that have the draping embossing on the shoulder. Although inconclusive at this point, of the numerous bottles I have been looking at there seems to be a trend in that ... 1. The majority of the downslant bottles are "Shoulder Script"2. The majority of the up/slant bottles are "Mid Script" But whether or not this has any significance, I do not know!
hey kari , those bottles were bottled in orangeburg s.c. .....there are several versions -including the one above with the embossed lime -- that just read bottling co of s.c. ...they were all bottled in orangeburg......
Listed in Gono.Com under embossed S.C. Soda Bottles:NO CITY32SSCL12[font="arial"]13"LIME COLA OF S C"I have never seen a down slant like that except here (Posted by WonkaPete), but different variant of bottle(Right): Maybe only Lime Colas from S.C. had a down slant? Just a guess.
I have the bottle on the left, however, the city is Suffolk, Virginia. Suffolk is not far from my home.
