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.

I dug bottles at time when many of the more proficient, and snobbish, collectors would sneer at the thought of hauling any ABM bottles home; but I would not hesitate to keep any of the bottles pictured in this thread. I am also a fan of Art Deco.

Thank you way more than I realized or knew . The bim star and high grade I have or had unsure without looking. Was telling a digging friend to look out for them. Still hoping to find the sonny boy. Thanks again sam.

Weird that his obituary makes no mention of Louis his brother in dallas, maybe the competition caused stress. I have dug several high grades and star bottles but have yet to see hutch type. The louis bottles are bim as are the star. Hope ya don't mind I'm going to print some of the ads and info for my kiddos and put them with the bottles. Maybe when I'm gone they won't be a quarter apiece at an estate sale. Very interesting story. I have been to the address in ft worth looking for a creek or dump near there.

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
Hi Digger,
I attached a variety of the Aunt Ida bottled in Shreveport. LA. I recently gave a talk about this family (Ida, Joe, and his brother) and the story of how Aunt Ida who was originally a chemist, was so important to the company and how she ended up running a spin off herself. Great bottles and great story. 20200529_133242.jpg20200529_133228.jpg

Hello Hamdan, glad u chimed in. Do you know why his brother in dallas is not mentioned?. Also I think L.Glazer is still in business in spirit sales. Is the slugplate Dallas bottle common in this collection. I have only dug half dozen or so and only in 1 dump less than 5 miles from address. It is a great family story with local connection to me.

Dig this one on thursday. Not sure if its uncle joe, high grade , California, or aunt ida. I think its uncle joe as they made 2 different size Amber's. This almost seems ruby colored.
