i noticed this bottle for sale online recently perhaps someone bought it , not sure what happened to it . had never seen it before which was why it interested me as i've seen most of the embossed soda's from ontario by now . is a beehive embossed soda bottle from Fort Frances Ontario , which was a mill town in NW ontario on the minnesota border so a long way north .

is a listing in book for royal bottling works and royal beverages - Fort Frances , which seem to start around the 30's and last till the 60's , so would assume this one is 40's or 50's era

embossing appears to says " Royal Beverages , Fort Frances Ont "

I have a Royal bottle in my collection that I think is the same bottle but the one I have is American from Milwaukee. Not 100 percent sure but I will look for it now. Not sure if that means anything to you but just trying to help!

I imagine yours is unrelated, this type of bottle was pretty much only used by small local bottlers and the name Royal was used by all sorts of different companies.

i doubt its related , Fort Frances is a small town in northern Ontario . the name royal was used by various bottlers in other parts of canada as well

also pretty sure the " beehive " style of bottle was only used in canada from around the 30's > 50's , made by dominion glass and consumers glass both canadian glass makers
