    Now for some clear bottles. By the way, if you want to sell me a bottle, please get in touch. From these photos, you get the idea of what I'm after.

    Those are all really nice, everybody! Thanks much for sharing them. I don't actively collect them, but I'll sure bring them home if I find 'em.

    I have all kinds of art deco's , must have one of the larger collections of Canadian art deco and embossed bottles . its hard to get nice pictures though and I've had a cold all week so not something I've felt like doing

    don't have that many " green " embossed bottles , and most I have would of just been for ginger ale or lime type drinks . actual green glass Canadian art deco type bottles would seem hard to come by

    there is a local art deco that comes in green but I've never found one or had the chance to buy one , its from Penetang Ontario and rare , here is a picture of one and a clear one I have

    The green one is just off the charts, but I'd take the afternoon off if I found even a clear one! Again, what attracts me, beyond their aesthetic beauty, is the irony that so much went into bottles for mere sugar water that were then thrown out without a thought.

    That would be one of my favorites, too!

    I'm getting a sense that there are some very deep collections out there, beginning to think that I've only scratched the surface despite having a number of nice bottles. Here are a couple of more panels, ones I'm very pleased to have.

    Well I have to show off this Deco. This is probably my favorite bottle, for 2 reasons. #1. It's a rare bottle from my hometown. #2, the 'singles' design is awesome.
