This was a recent find. It is the oldest cardboard bottle box that I personally have seen. Made of heavy card stock. We see lots of wooden, metal and plastic carriers, but rarely cardboard bottle carriers. There is a 1924 patent date and 1933 copyright date on its bottom. Now to find 6 period correct bottles to complete the look. So far only finding 1950s bottles. Gives me a reason to look at Coke bottles again.
