found this one a couple months ago at an antique mall in southern Ontario . never seen it before although I had seen other bottles from Star Beverage co Toronto . there listed as having operated from 1914-1941 in Toronto Ontario and then seem to disappear
this bottle seems to be a 30's era art deco style bottle , not much on the bottle " Star Beverages co registered " contents 6 1/2 oz .
has some unique features such as the " grips " , is 4 of them , which allow the person to much hold the bottle much easier , it is a fairly heavy bottle for its size
is a star embossed on the very bottom on the bottle .
That's an interesting one, never seen it before. Very unusual deco design for a Canadian bottle.
I had never seen one before either which was partly why I decided to buy it .
its not listed in the Toronto bottle book , there is a page for Star Beverages co that features several of there bottles ( most of which are aqua style soda water bottles ) but its not there . perhaps they hadn't seen one either
That is a very nice bottle!
I have only seen Star Beverages bottles from Sudbury. The picture below is an example I recently picked up and it dates to 1960.
The second picture is a bottle very similar to your deco design. It appears to have the same indents for grip. Yours has rings near the neck where mine has vertical lines. The only markings on my bottle are on the base where it says Canadian Bottlers Association and then the large CBA.
Hi, I am wondering if you found additional information concerning the origin of this bottle? I have one of these and none of my bottle collecting friends here in North Carolina have ever seen one. I...
Thanks! We have started digging a bit deeper and have come across some things that seemed to have at least managed to survive unscathed but it seems only the very small bottles are intact. I plan on...
I hope it isn't one of the ones that I have in my consignment booth for much less than the Redbook lists them at. Not sure of the spelling of widemouth on mine though. They are of Canadian origin so...
