Hello! I could use some help on this one. It's an Unfermented Grape Juice bottle. Elk brand. Catawba is a grape I believe. Nothing on the bottom but the pontil mark? But I can't find anything about it. My research skills are not the greatest to say the least. How old? From where? Any information would be greatly appreciated! I apologize for the excessive repeat photos! I repel technology!

Thanks
Missy

I found that there's several places where"Catawba" wines have been made, I did find a similar looking early bottle that has a moose head rather than an elk head on it, otherwise the two look very similar. It's shown to be from Kelly's Island, Ohio.catawba-wine-moose-label-sweet-valley_1_8df309f157fdf6c78d9998ae217766fc.jpgcatawba-wine-moose-label-sweet-valley_1_8df309f157fdf6c78d9998ae217766fc (2).jpg

Back in the '60s-70s there was a popular wine by the same name. I can remember was that it was "pink", handled, and had a wider base. Likely not the info you're looking for but one of many generational signposts in American history that someday you may also dig up. Oh, look, there's another ahead... :)

Thanks guys! I appreciate the information. Any idea how old you think the bottle is?

My guess would be 1900-1920, but it doesn't appear to be pontiled to me.
