I picked up this bottle at a local antique mall yesterday. RICK’S ORANGE HOUSTON TEXAS. I’m thinking it is a milk (orange cream?) but I’m not too sure. The top looks like most milk bottles. Did juice bottles come in the same shape? I don’t think I’ve ever seen an embossed Texas juice bottle so I have nothing to compare it to.

I can't speak to this specific bottle (which is really cool by the way) but Orange Juice was often delivered in bottles very similar to milk bottles by the same folks delivering milk.

Interesting, I did not know that. I can imagine fresh milk from your local dairy but receiving juice that way too seems odd unless you had an apple orchard or orange grove nearby...and seasonal at that.
