    White Star Bottling Company Detroit MI

    The top of the lip is chipped off, but this seems like a keeper. I can't find any info on it. I dug this up yesterday. Thanks!Click image for larger version.

    I'm a little familiar with it since I have 1 or 2 & have it in a Seltzer bottle. I think it's a little tough as I don't see to many to often but probably not worth more then $20 bucks. Hope that helps? LEON.

    Thank you for the information! I really appreciate it. I don't plan on selling it. Any idea on age? The top looks tooled, but I can't tell if it is a crown or a blob top due to the very top of the lip being broken off.

    I'm going to guess it's ABM from 19 teens-1920's & a Crown top. LEON.

    My great uncle owned White Star in the late 1920s and early 1930s. His daughter, still alive in her 90s, swore to me that bottling Faygo got them through the depression.
