I have three bottles. One Orange Crush with Vermont Bev. Co. Montpelier, VT embossed on it. The second appears to have been made in a three piece mould, and the third is a beverage bottle inscribed with Cristoforo & Mocavaro Wine Co. 453 Hanover St. Boston, MA and at the bottom, REGISTERED 1158 B. I would love to have any information available about them. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum! What's on the base of the Orange Crush? I don't remember seeing one with the bottler's name on the label before, I wonder if it's a particularly early one.
The three-piece mold bottle looks like it might be a citrate of magnesia, but hard to say for sure without any embossing.
I can't see any embossing at all on the Boston bottle, did you forget a picture showing the front or is it acid-etched? It's an unusual form for a wine bottle, usually those would have held beer. Though it's possible the wine company also sold beer I suppose.

Hi, thank you for your response. Attached is a photo of the bottom of the Orange Crush bottle as well as a closeup of the VT Bev. Co. lettering. Also the writing on the wine bottle. Hard to see but it says Wine Co. just above the Hanover Street address. (I found it in some construction rubble not far from that address. Just FYI.)

Looking to sell these. Would love to know value!

Boston wine bottle is embossed.

Any input for these bottles?
Looks like the Orange Crush is from 1947. Otherwise I'm afraid there's not much I can offer in terms of info, no idea on value. Usually those Orange Crush bottles aren't worth much, especially in that condition, but this particular one might be more desirable because of the local bottler's name if it's a hard one to find. I have no idea on its rarity myself though.

Thank you. I thought the other two would be easier to put a value on! When did they stop using three piece moulds?
