    Felix "the cat " acl Ginger ale bottle Vancouver BC

    was searching around ebay today and I saw this bottle had sold a couple weeks back , though it was really interesting so figured I'd share it . however the winning bidder had paid almost $50 plus shipping for it even though it has some wear to the cat image


    don't know that much about it , says its for "Felix " ginger ale bottled by Felix bottlers ltd Vancouver BC , I have no idea how rare the bottle is , haven't seen one before myself

    Felix the cat was a popular cartoon character according to wikipedia so not sure how it ended up on a ginger ale bottle

    Never seen it before but I like that one a lot. Must be a good one if the person paid up for it in that condition.

    I hadn't seen it before either which was why I posted it ( although I had seen other felix bottles but not a small 7 oz one ) ,

    likely would of been worth more if label was in better condition . a lot of black ink around the cat is missing

    It's fairly rare, another one of Canada's early ACL's this one dates to 1938. Despite the condition I think the buyer got a great deal. There is also a very rare quart that I only got a glimps of.
    Anyways that particular bottle with complete paint will go for as much as $360 cad. I have several quarts and a tough tray...also the very sought after paper label version of that ACL, plus several photographs of other rarely seen Felix bottles.

    I believe this was posted by me a couple years back on here, note the tray mentions 'Club Sodas' ...that in a paper label would be considered extremely rare!

    1938 , that is early for an acl , I didn't realise it was that old

    I have no idea what its worth , but agree it would of been worth more if entire cat image was in better condition

    there is a quart of this same design ? or a quart bottle from felix with a different design

    anyways I've never seen any of these bottles for sale in Ontario , only seen them online

    The design on the rare quart is very similar except it has a white square background on clear glass, then there are two quarts that are different all together, one green and the other clear.
    My paper label is dot reversed stamped on the label...1936.
