kind of a different design for a dr pepper bottle , likely from a smaller local bottler which is why its marked Fort Smith Ark .

don't think that design was widely used by dr pepper if used at all

From the markings on the bottom of the bottle we know the bottle was made by the Owens Illinois Glass Co's (the diamond/oval/I symbol in the middle)plant in Streeter Illinois (the number 9) in 1935. (the number 5). This bottle was most likely used for a flavored soda that was bottled by the Dr. Pepper Bottling Co. of Fort Smith, Arkansas. It never contained the soda Dr. Pepper.
Nice art deco style bottle.

Thank you. Glad I figured out some of the stuff you just said. It will make a nice flower vase

This style soda flavor bottle was used by many Dr Pepper plants in texas. I have a few from different citys. The are in the DP book and value is 10 to 20 dollars. Look for 3R or 3Rivers or 3* on the bottom or heel these would be the 20 range. Nice bottle should display well thanks for posting it.
