I think it's more of a dog face in the style of Goofy...
That's what I was thinking at first. I also think I see teeth more like a hippo.
No clue but cool.

hahaha peter platypus. thats awesome. I must say that the pictures distort the image since I had to resize the photo to fit the post. I will try and get a better more clear shot of this wannabe DDuck faced creature. Im just wondering what the heck it is? Ive searched forever online and cannot find anything like it. About 90% of the bottles weve pulled outta this particular site are from the 40s. We are just at the surface of this site and havent gone deeper since we were driven out by Snaked yesterday. We were pulling out mason jars with snakes inside the bottles. (its near a stream).

Anyway, I will try and get a better shot of this unkown, but it does look like a duck in hand for sure. It has that duck beak/bill and is wearing a hat. The weird thing is that it has what looks like hair on each side of the head. The thing under his head is supposed to be his shirt or neck?
thanks again for any input and guesses. You guys are great

BTW I checked for teeth, and there isnt any. Just a tongue further back in the mouth area. ??????????????

Thats funny. I have looked through some good stories about this stuff. I guess it didnt taste very good. But anyway, it seems to have come in cans and cartons. I cannot find one in a bottle. It dates back to the early 50s tho, so good guess. Thanks alot

here is the link to the Orange juice Duck. A little closer to the image of my duck than the soda duck, thats for sure.

I see no connection between this and your bottle in any way, I still don't think it's DD...maybe a bad ripoff but in no way a Disney item...IMHO

and I surely don'y see OJ coming in your type of bottle

Im not talking about the bottle itself, I was comparing the Ducks head only on the OJ bottle. I highly doubt it is a ripoff or reproduction because we havent found any bottles (over 48') at the site, but who knows? If you see it in hand, you would agree it is a duck for sure, and it looks VERY similar to DD. What other duck wheres a navy styel cap like that? As for not putting OJ in small bottles like this......I dunno? I have a 40s Tropicana OJ bottle that is almost the same size and structure as this one. The only thing that makes me think it is NOT OJ, is the "soda cap" type head or top on the bottle. But to say its not a duck, I just cannot see it being anything other than a duck in hand. Just my opinion tho and I am definitely open to ideas.
