For the record, the purpose of the "beehive rings" is to hold firm the glass bottle in a child's hand. Children dropping glass soda bottles was a constant hazard, and injuries were endless. I survived many cuts from shards and embedded broken bottles in the muds of old cow ponds growing up.
Still, there was always an appeal for carbonated beverages in well designed glass bottles!

Great bottle! Which back label does it have? What does it say? Does the swim lady on your bottle have 1 foot or 2? Can you provide a picture of the back label?

Can anyone tell me anything on this one? The only thing I'v ever seen online is a cap. And they had one plant in Tacoma. I dug this out of a farm dump in Fife, Wa. two years ago. What is it worth? I think it is from 1944. Mostly what was in the dump is whiskey bottles with a few cork tops. I gave away over three dozen clear pint whiskey screw tops, and kept the unique ones. I found a couple 8 bubble 7 Ups too, one had an embossed 7 at the top. They both lost the red tho since they were buried for over 70 years. Also, if anyone who is local wants a mostly WW@ era collection, I need to get rid of mine. I have a 6 shelf 12X26 inch bookshelf that is full. I'm ion Graham, Wa.
