ORIGINAL: celerycola

This exact bottle turned up at the Columbia SC bottle show last month and no one, including Georgia Crown Soda Book authors Ken Nease and Carl Barnet had ever heard of it. The bottler name embossed, James Ray's Sons, had gone out of business by about 1912. No other machine made bottle for James Rays Sons has been found.
Must have been their pops...

In case you haven't noticed yet, the e-Bay auction for this bottle closed yesterday (3-14-10) with a winning bid of $500.00! I wonder what it would have sold for had it been in mint condition?

The Artesian Manf and Bottling Co. Waco Texas never had a hutch bottle. They had a blob top, Baltimore Loop, and a Twitchell and a small crown top. The Artesian Co started bottling Dr Pepper in 1891 in Waco, Texas.

I recently found and bought a James Ray Dr Pepper KoB bottle. Does anyone on here know of another or about the history of it?
