I was given this bottle by a friend and would like to know a bit more about it. I have searched the forum and haven't found very much on the older embossed ones. The only markings on the bottle are "Robertson's Beverages" around the top band; "Beaufont Bottling Works Washington NC" around the base band; and "7 FL OZ" on the bottom. I am curious as to the approximate age of this style of the embossed bottle as well as some history of the bottling company. Many thanks for any information that anyone can share.

My understanding is circa 1946 - 1950. Many area bottlers reverted to 'deco style' embossed bottles due to WWII shortages. They weren't proprietary designs patented by the bottlers as in the 20's and 30's, but rather stock designs owned by the glass manufacturer which saw a resurgence. They went back to ACL bottles as they could. I know (and have known) several Roberson family members and have a variety of Roberson bottles, so it's an educated guess.
