Hello,
New to the forum from Canada. Picked up this Orange Freeze Co. of Canada deco bottle recently. 28 oz.
Displays very nicely, but can’t find much info on it. Consumer glass stamped on the bottom.
Appreciate any info others may have on it.

i looked in my book and its not listed in Ontario so most likely from Montreal as mentioned . not sure if I've seen it before , doesn't really seem familiar .
not sure if they also would of had a smaller sized bottle or what it might look like .

a green 28 oz bottle is unusual if its not for ginger ale , since this was for an orange drink

Wow nice bottle, never seen that one before! It's from Montreal, there's an address in this digitized newspaper from 1929 http://collections.banq.qc.ca/lapresse/src/cahiers/1929/03/16/82812_1929-03-16.txt which is almost illegible, but I'm pretty sure it's 4131 St. Dominique Street.

They were still there in 1933 as well http://webcache.googleusercontent.c...-Spring-Beacon.pdf+&cd=13&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca
Thanks Canadian Bottles for the links.
I suspected from Quebec. It is also a very weighty bottle which kind of adds to its appeal.

Thanks RCO. I do know there is a clear version of the same size/style that I also hope to pick up. The deco style certainly reminds me of the Orange Crush quarts. I’m thinking they were trying to be a competitor at the time.

there was a lot of orange crush imitators back then or similar products .

although the bottle itself is still rather unique in terms of design , I don't think I've seen the clear one either

Here’s the clear one. I’d like to buy more Canadian Art Deco. Anything? Thanks. John in Michigan.

I don't know if Canada really has a lot of true art deco's compared to the US , there is some from the major cities and a few interesting ones from smaller places you might not think of

but the good ones aren't that easy to find , I've pulled over 100 bottles out of the water this summer off a busy dock here and not 1 was an actual art deco bottle , some embossed bottles but nothing yet from the 20's - 30's era which would be true art deco bottles

you might find the odd ones appears on ebay now and then , there is usually some at the Toronto bottle show but it didn't take place this year and not sure when it will resume
