I have 3 different ones , wondering if anyone knows of others using the same bottle shape. Just realized the 2 I left behind last week are different sizes.
Uncle Joe - ft worth
California - dallas 2 sizes
Aunt Ida - lousiana
All 3 three of these sodas have a family connection. Some are 3rivers some are not. Did any others sodas use this bottle?. Thanks Sam

Sam, those are cool as hell. I'm really a BIM guy but the art deco 1920's- 30's soda bottles are cool! I don't know of any other like yours but I have some that are similar. GOOOD finds! thanks for showing us these. I hope you can discover more.

Ontario , Canada
yes there was other bottlers using that shape of bottle , not sure how many others were using it

I have a bottle from Orangeville Ontario which is pretty close to the exact shape and design of yours and its miles north of Texas and Louisiana .

so maybe the design was featured in a catalogue ? or beverage makers were somehow aware of it ?

mine has a mark " design reg'd A. S. W. 1930 " , contents 6 1/2 fl oz - Walkers Beverages Orangeville

can't recall off hand any other bottlers in Ontario Canada who used this bottle , only one I've seen here

Treeguyfred, there is a bim slug plate of real fruit juice co dallas with address on it. (Found several of them)I posted pics back in 2010 can't find it, and too many boxes to look through in the shed, if I can find a pic I will post it.

Sam, I took a look through the few 1920's-40's soda bottles that i have and none of them are exactly like yours.
If you'll indulge me here are the ABM sodas that are in my collection from northern NJ..
