    Re: Lime cola bottle bottling company of SC

    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

    Re: Lime cola bottle bottling company of SC

    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!

    Could the slants be related to time periods? like maybe first the up slants came out then the down slants later?I don't know how to check the dates on that, I don't have any of those bottles.

    Z That's a good question but one I personally cannot answer, either.

    I have the bottle on the left, however, the city is Suffolk, Virginia. Suffolk is not far from my home.
