Hi,
I collect bottles from a small city in Central Ny...Auburn. I recently picked up this soda bottle. It has a tall gentleman with a top hat and cane. Oround the bottom itsays "ONE TALL ONE. On the underside says Auburn NY with an R enclosed in a triangle. My question is... what company might have produced this and time frame. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks. Scott

I've got an Orange Crush 6oz that has that mark; R in a triangle, count me in on this question.

The Tall One brand bottles are nice deco bottles. As far as I know, they come in 3 sizes.
The Tall One bottles' design is a patented design that was issued on June 27, 1927.

The R in a triangle signifies the glass maker as F. E. Reed Glass Company based in Rochester, NY. I have some Reed Glass bottles and they are very nicely done; it was a very good deco company! All the Reed Glass bottles that I've seen are particularly well made, in my opinion. Only a few of the Reed Glass bottles that I have might have a date code on them. The others are just some numbers or letters that don't look like date codes.

Thanks! :)
Nothing else on the bottom or heel of this bottle.
I don't know, but maybe you do.
When did crush bottles change from a smooth neck to a wrinkled surface?
