The Riker looks to be the oldest, around late 1800-early 1900 like you said. Congrats on that one. LEON.
Thanks Embe! I thought the same thing that the glass was really thick compared to contemporary bottles. My granny, who lived to 96, always used to joke about her grandkids who needed eye glasses...she used to say "those are as thick as Coke bottles", which was obviously referencing the Coke bottles she remembered as a kid in the nineteen-teens and nineteen-twenties. Maybe a Pepsi guru will come forward with a more specific time range.The Pepsi looks older than the 50-60's stuff I have, someone will surely chime in based on the pat # . I'd guess a couple decades prior based on glass thickness alone. Nice bottles.
