One of my favorite Cokes is this pre 1924 from Consumers glass, I picked it up about seven years ago.
It has 'TRADE MARK REGISTRED' on both sides, and one side has 'MIN CONTENTS 6-FL. OZS.' The base has the inverted triangle with a C inside of it.
The Coca-Cola Company of Canada was formed officially on January 1, 1924. The bottles after this time had the side with the partial blank space redone with 'THE COCA-COLA COMPANY OF CANADA LIMITED'
It also features the vertical flutes that continue from bottom to top that divide the main field on each side.
So I suppose in a sense this bottle is the cousin to the D-19.


The Province, 29 Dec 1923

coca cola had been in canada before 1924 , didn't realise it changed its name/ formed a different company at the time

i've found some similar early hobble skirt bottles but usually there broken or damaged

Yes Coca-Cola applied for the trade mark to be registered for use in Canada in 1895. Prior to 1924 it was simply 'The Coca-Cola Company'
