Howdy, curious if anyone out there can help identify this clear glass "DIXIE" bottle a relative found in the woods here in Eastern North Carolina decades ago. Appears to be 10oz so assumed a soda perhaps? Couldn't find a single one that resembled it when searching Google a bunch of different ways so figured I'd join to see if anyone on here could help me out. Also curious on any possible rarity? Thanks in advance!

Made by the Laurens Glass Works I would assume post-1940. The texturing on the bottle is not something commonly seen on bottles until around 1930 but at least in my area, most of the earlier ones were 6 1/2oz. 10oz. bottles to my knowledge only became popular in the late 1940s. Again, just in my area.

Overall probably 1930-1980+. Check for date codes, that'll give you more context.

I believe this is the company.

Welcome to the forum! I'm pretty certain it's not related to that Dixie Coca Cola company. There was a major North Carolina bottler called Dixie Refreshments which I would assume your bottle is from. It would have had a paper label although I wasn't able to find any examples online.

I wonder if it could be from Dixie Brewery in New Orleans? The lettering looks the same, but I've never seen one like this with the stippling.

That was my first thought, but I haven't seen any examples of theirs in a clear bottle. Also didn't know if they'd ever packaged in a 10oz bottle?

Thanks, happy to be here! Dixie Refreshments would make an awful lot of sense being that it was found here in Eastern North Carolina. Still killing me there's no other similar comps online anywhere to compare to! Ha

I know the feeling. We think the internet is all knowing, but it does occasionally get skunked. I could not find another bottle like this, which is what got me to join and hope ID'ing
