    The Plot Thickens!

    Maybe this 1938 Patent has something to do with it. Except the text part didn't say anything about it being Amber or anything about an ACL label. Compare it to the bottle in my last post ... ???

    And there's this!

    [ The Courier Journal ~ Louisville, Ky ~ August 16, 1940 ]

    Notes:

    1. It doesn't use the word Amber - But it does say - "New, Patented Flavor Guarding Bottles"

    2. Maybe the term "Flavor Guarding" will lead to something.

    3. Epping definitely had an Amber / Flavor Guarding bottle in 1939-40 - and most likely from 1940 on

    4. But that still doesn't explain why it appears to have been just Epping who had it

    6. More research is required to try and make sense of it

    [ This is the last one for today and will resume the search tomorrow ]

    I found a bunch of these signs and they are apparently marked somewhere with a date because the majority of them are described as being marked with ...


    1939

    However, none of the examples I found said anything about Epping ???

    [ This is for sure the last one today - I just wouldn't sleep well without sharing it first ]

    More confusion!

    1. The only years I can find an Epping ad with a reference to a "Brown Bottle" and/or a "Flavor Guarding bottle" are 1939-1940-1941

    2. So how do we explain this Greenville, Mississippi bottler promoting the same bottle in 1938?

    3. There's no way this bottle was first introduced in 1946-47

    4. Almost identical ads like this appear in dozens of different towns and states during this same time period

    I was confused because the Name John G. Epping does not appear as the inventor on the drawing?

    My Final Analysis

    Other than in the 1939 article (which I now believe is partially out of context and misleading) I cannot find a single shred of evidence to support that John G. Epping Bottling of Louisville, Kentucky had anything to do with developing and/or inventing the Amber Brown Krinkly Orange Crush bottle. Please read my edited version of the article and you might agree ...

    I counted 80 different bottles in my collection. There are at least 15 more bottles I know that exists that I do not have of his.
